Tasting Note: A dry, well-made riesling that is filled with delicate fruit flavors and a pleasing mouthfeel.

Pale-intensity lemon green in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of green pear, quince, pineapple, lychee, honey dew melon, apricot, blossom and lime-citrus peel.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied riesling delivers delicate fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a slightly-chalk-infused, medium finish.

The wine has a steely texture with a mix of ripe and tart fruit flavors.

There is midpalate complexity and restraint.

A solid riesling.
