Tasted blind for practice at my WSET class, this Riesling was pale gold in the glass. Medium (+) intensity nose with aromas of ginger, honey, tangerine, lemon, lanolin and wet stone. I made a note that it was developing ‘nicely’. The palate was off-dry with high acidity, low alcohol and a full body. Medium (+) intensity flavors echoed the nose and the wine finished with a decent medium (+) finish. I thought this was an ‘Outstanding’ wine based on the WSET criteria and feel it could be drunk now or aged some more. I really liked it and for $17 this 90 pointer gets 5 stars. Spicy Asian dishes come to mind. Salut….
