Time of release
Last year I commended the 2003 vintage as the best Jasper Hill Riesling ever, but this one is even better, with greater intensity. Tropical/ citrus/ green apple and floral aromas with an ultra-dry, crisp natural acid palate. The risky practice of indigenous (wild) yeast fermentation of aromatic white varieties is now our preference, resulting in even more complexity in the wine. 12 percent.
