Moderately full-bodied, our Dry Riesling is well-rounded, but zesty and fresh, offering notes of tropical fruit and peach with a clean acidity and lingering spiciness on the palate.
89 pts: 2020 New York Wine Classic: "Summer fruit salad; kiwi, orange, grilled peach, lime and banana. Clean, savory, saline and taut on the palate with fine precision and balance. Versatile and charming."
89 pts: Catherine Fallis, Master Sommelier - Planet Grape Wine Review: "Light and fresh with notes of red delicious and gala apple, lemon lime soda, ginger, honey and nutmeg."
88 pts: James Molesworth, Wine Spectator: "A bracing style, with pippin apple and kiwifruit core notes carried by crunchy acidity. Late flash of talc adds to the chiseled feel."
