More floral again this year, accompanied by the usual lemon/lime/citrus tang and dry finish that distinguishes this wine. Our Riesling is starting to gain accolades in some quarters and has always done well in London and San Francisco, not that a lot goes there. Riesling is such a great aperitif when young, but dont overlook its cellaring potential. 13.5% alc/vol.
