Wine Review: This delightful dry Riesling is a cheery medium golden yellow color. It opens with green apple, honeysuckle and sea breeze on the nose, with some notes of vinyl and apricot. It is medium-minus bodied with medium acidity. It is zesty, bone dry and refreshing. The flavors are unripe plum, pear, lemon and wet stone with a touch of petrol. The finish is moderate with some citrus pith and minerality. This very good value Riesling would pair well with a Salade Nicoise. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: The entry-level "100 Hills" wines are produced with about 40% estate-harvested fruit, primarily from sites that are not as dominated by limestone as the estate’s best vineyards. The 2018 100 Hills Dry is a modern classic. Elegant with invigorating freshness of grapefruit and peach. Amazingly juicy and fresh with lively acidity and a fine minerality. An essential everyday Riesling to be enjoyed with seasonal salads, fresh vegetables, white meats or fish.
