TASTING NOTE: This is really fascinating, a tight, lean Riesling that opens up to a dynamic and earthy nose of grapefruit, reductive minerals and a deep dive on salinity, like an ocean breeze, very complex. It has firm acidity, a tart range of citrus fruit, lanolin, fuzzy peach and subtle minerality. Can age 5+ years. Score - 90 (Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, July 27, 2017) Price $ 19.95
