Tasting Notes: Notes of stone fruit, orange peel, and kiwi meld together with hints of honeysuckle, yellow flowers, and honey. With a delicate kiss of tannin and lovely weight, this dry Riesling can stand up to an array of dishes, from BBQ to seafood. It is a singular, unique wine to which the only comparison for us is the previous vintage.
