Top Notes For
David Shaw

Light golden in color, excellent clarity. Diesel and pine notes in nose. Crisp, almost dry, citric finish, good Riesling flavor profile with stone fruit, mandarin notes as mentioned on label. Moderate skin astringency with slight lactic character in finish. After an hour, some lime flavor emerges. Last vintage as these vines are being budded over to other varieties. Pity that; we need to be buying and drinking more American Rieslings, people!
