A racy style, with well-defined flavors of ripe apple and pear, this crisp white delivers a citric snap, accompanied by rich notes of vanilla cream and spice, with a custardy finish. Drink now through 2018. 40 cases imported.

Herb-tinged aromas of apricot, vineyard peach and acacia honey, complicated by discreet spices. Juicy on the palate, showing a vibrant if somewhat austere acid structure. This unctuous yet youthfully closed riesling shows impressively persistent flavors of sweet, ripe stone fruits.
