A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: Once passed a whiff of vinyl, this is fleshy, high flavour intensity riesling with great length. This is serious stuff, all lemons and apples in the typical fashion. Tuck this in the cellar for a year or two at least. Score - 93 (John Szabo, MS, winealign.com, July 18, 2018) Price $ 18.95
