TASTING NOTE: Aromas of sharp spice, racy lime and ripe pear billow from this just-barely yellow-hued, singlevineyard riesling. It explodes on the palate with a gusher of lime cordial and crisp green apple framed by electrifying tang and acidity. The dry, mouth-watering, lip-smacking finish lingers luxuriously. This sips well on its own and truly shines served with a baguette and charcuterie board. Score - 91 (Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, Feb. 27, 2018) Price $ 18.95
