I've always loved this wine. It will take you to the happy place. Rope, rich and round- just a wonderful example of what can be achieved with extraordinary cooperation.

Very smooth riesling, almost effervescent. A touch sweet. Perfect for summer, maybe a bit too fancy for dolo :)

Pale straw gold. Guince and mineral on the nose. Firm acidity joins them on the medium-full palate. Pork chops anyone?

Pale beige gold. Intense nose of yellow apples, minerals, and slight petrol. Echoed on the palate while firm acidity takes charge. Best of both worlds. What dry Riesling is *supposed * to be, and in a spectacular place now.

'Why are you pronouncing 'exotica' wrong?' might be your first thought if you could get past the delicious translucent yellow spraying off the ocean waves, then dive for more fish.

Always lovely--lots of perfumy spring flower/orchard blossom notes, white peach and gala apple, wet stone minerality is prominent, slightest petrol hint, slightly off dry

Clear straw gold. Quince and wet stone in the nose. Bright, tingly acidity rules the palate of dried quince and cement. Finish is a bit earthy.

Pale straw gold. Pear and mineral on the nose. Firm backbone of acidity accompanies mouth filling dried pome on the palate. Great accompaniment to just about everything.
