2017 vintage. Surprisingly golden in color, considering its youth. Petrol and white floral notes on the nose, lots of acidity in the palate. Good concentration, with melon, green apple, lime, white nectarine, honeysuckle, little bit of green. Sweetness is very discreet. — a year ago
Rieslaner is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. It has the potential for whimsically textured wines that literally feel as though they dance across your palate. Mouth watering, tingling acidity. I'm honestly in love. So much pleasure in one bottle. — 3 years ago
Hit of pear (Asian pear?) on the nose and a little just-mown lawn. Complex, almost busy, palate darting from one thing to the next: sweet, savory, tart and citric. Long sweet-sour finish. Fantastic!

2019 vintage. Laser-like acidity complements the tropical fruit profile: pineapple, guava, yellow papaya, green apple, nectarine, soap, rosewater lokum, powdered sugar, honeysuckle, apricot nectar. Sweetness is definitely there, but would make this divine with spicy food. Rather lithe and light-bodied for the variety. In honor of my first time working Thanksgiving Day...boy, was it busy!! — 10 months ago
2016 vintage. Very tropical. Brûleed pineapple, baked yellow apple, quince paste, banana, fried plantain, honeysuckle, prendre blossom, white lokum, yellow papaya. Good sweetness-acid balance, though a touch less acid than a lot of Riesling equivalents. — 3 years ago
Such a beautiful expression of Chenin - if a bit atypical (yet regal) featuring prominent tangy citrus on the nose with huge blast of minerality. Sleek on palate w/white stone fruit & darting soft spot here & there - more prominent rounding as it warmed... but fairly sturdy acidic backbone keeps things moving along. Drink this at cellar temp to see what it’s really about. — 7 months ago
