Coming from estate grown vineyards planted from 1972 the 2010 Art Series Riesling gives intense notes of ripe pears fresh peaches and granny smith apples with a spicy undercurrent and just a hint of honeysuckle. Crisp dry and well balanced it gives plenty of mid-palate stone fruit and apple flavors on the light to medium bodied palate leading to a long finish. Drinking now it should cellar to 2017.

Light straw-green; an ever-reliable riesling that has legions of admirers in a national climate lukewarm about the variety; the only problems with the wine is that it sells out so quickly.

Light yellow. High-pitched aromas of lime lemongrass quinine and chalk dust with a pear skin nuance in the background. Fleshy and smooth on entry then firmer in the mid-palate with lively orchard fruit and citrus pith... Light yellow. High-pitched aromas of lime lemongrass quinine and chalk dust with a pear skin nuance in the background. Fleshy and smooth on entry then firmer in the mid-palate with lively orchard fruit and citrus pith flavors showing a refreshingly bitter edge. Closes on a firm dusty note with lingering florality. This is delicious now but I'd have no problem aging it for another five years or so.
