This Riesling has a bright, very pale colour with a touch of green and gold. The nose shows a floral aromatic quality with a background of ripe Granny Smith apples. The palate starts medium-dry with a floral pear and apple blossom character, finishing crisp with a lime citrus fruit flavour and good length.

Wine Advocate

The 2009 Riesling has pretty citrus/grapefruit zest and yuzu aromas with hints of green mango and lime juice. Crisp with plenty of citrus flavors and a bit of sweetness, the palate finishes long, fresh and clean. Drinking now, it should keep through 2014.

Score: 89. —Lisa Perrotti-Brown, October 2011.

Wine Enthusiast

A simple, fresh and appealing Riesling, light to medium in body and off dry in style. Apple and citrus notes dominate, with some slightly riper melon notes evident as well. Drink over the next few years.

Score: 86. —Joe Czerwinski, June 01, 2011.
