Sinewy and elegant with a tangy citrus scent and a hint of peppercorn this feels finely knit and pure. The flavors lengthen after a day open and bring to bear a juicy mouthwatering briskness with a minerality that suggests a long thrilling life in the cellar.

This shows lively acidity with ripe but tart fruit and an alcohol level just slightly above 12%. The grapes used were sourced from the Benches (German clones) and old vine plantings at Dionysus.

The grapes used were sourced from the Benches (German clones) and old vine plantings at Dionysus. It's a lush Poet's Leap lightly tasting of honey and loaded with pretty flavors of Meyer lemon ripe orange and candied pineapple.

Incisive in its keen Riesling focus and bristling with bright fruity acids the latest Poet's Leap bottling is a vibrant slightly sweet working that is simply too young and tight to be enjoyed soon. It has all the pieces in place to develop impressively with age and if demanding another year or two at a minimum before rounding into shape we expect that it will continue to improve and deepen for a good many more.
