Expert Reviews

Wine Spectator (2017)89 pts

Lively and supple, with spirited lemon zest and grapefruit flavors that persist with fresh acidity

Wine Enthusiast (2016)89 pts

This wine bursts with ripe peach, honeysuckle and jasmine aromas. It drinks off-dry, the palate redolent of juicy stone fruit and mouthwatering acidity. The balance is exquisite. More, please!

Vinification Notes

Riesling grapes were picked under cool nighttime skies to preserve the variety’s bright, juicy style and retain all the natural acidity.. Cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks preserves the freshness and bright fruit qualities of this wine.
