Wine Review: This is a well-made dry Riesling. It is a medium white gold color and shows white peach, green apple, white florals and some ginger in the bouquet. It is medium bodied with medium-plus acidity. It come across as very dry, crisp and refreshing. There are enticing flavors of green apple, pear, peach pit, minerality and a hint of lemon-lime. The finish lingers quite a while and has a hint of ginger. A glass of this Riesling would go well with some fried clams. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: The wine shows this in its textural quality, which is sensed even in the aromatics. Lemon, lime, and honeydew melon are weaved with wisteria and honeysuckle floral notes in the nose. The mouth brings a focused core of citrus wrapped with a creamy embrace, which dissolves into a bright lemon sweet tart finish. A little crushed oyster shell minerality at the end foretells of the telltale diesel notes that the best Rieslings show with age. All manner of fresh shellfish will make a great match, especially raw oysters and steamed clams.
