Another taught and racy Riesling from Forge Cellars. This time, the grapes are sourced from Les Alliés vineyard, which lies on the east side of Lake Seneca. The vines are planted in shale and gravelly loam, as such, the profile is lean and citrusy, with hints of lemon zest and pear, layered under wet shell and river rock. The use of large oak barrique is evident on the palate, lending depth and texture to tension. It's bracingly acidic and slightly oxidized, straight though to the finish. 0.3% RS 12.5% ABV | Sample

Will be even better after a few years of cellaring. Oak balanced with citrus and acid. Stunning!
