Good enough but not good enough to finish the bottle. Didn't have that zing...

The acidity of the wine helps give it a great weight, length and richness on the palate. Went great with the Indian food.

A gigantic hefty brute of a Riesling vs the Mosel I typically imbibe...petrol, lemonade and honey briefly on the midpalate. Pretty darned tasty.

A little reductive out of the gate. Sweaty sock, grapefruit nose - seems a little closed. Body was a bit too abrasive with the acid. Grapefruit bomb.

Love the 11.8% alc on this Alkoomi Riesling. Pale, limpid green yellow. Aromas of struck flint, lime, chalk and green citrus. Flavors are expectedly lean and fresh. This can age for 10+ into something quite interesting.

Petrichor on the nose. Angular citrus. Under stone fruit: nectarine, white peach. Light garden hose. Apple. Clean and refined with a medium to medium- body. Medium to medium+ acidity. Surprisingly long finish.

Lightning acidity, fresh lime with a wet stone backbone.

Best of the wines tonight! Medium body with a sweet start but a dryer finish. Pear & a touch of citrus? A really good Summer wine.

Stone fruit and white Flint on the nose. Light minerality. Some white stone fruit flavors. Perhaps some flint. Not sweet. Very tasty.
