Yas! Checking in on this badboy, so much wine at so little price, absurd QPR, glad a few are still laying around. Harmonious, electrifying acid and textural presence, without ever being to piercing. Its shed some baby fat, and this awesome candied lime and crushed salt note is taking over. Cool and citron-esque herbs are abundant; verbena, citronella, and lime blossoms. Utterly refreshing and delicious 😋

I had a visceral reaction to this wine when I took my first sip. My 88-year-old tea-totaling, religiously conservative grandfather was in the room and I couldn't help but blurt out, "That is so fucking delicious." Luckily he's hard of hearing. This Riesling is thirst-wine at its very finest. Riveting texture and acid, with a perfect combination of lush stone-and-citrus fruit and crunchy, salty savory-ness. There's not quite the size obligation and ambition of a GG, but this is about as serious as "unserious" wine can get. I can't remember a better $20 white wine. Buy a case and drink from now until whenever.

Out performs on so many levels for the price. Super saline, crumbly texture, luscious stone fruit and ripe citrus character, and refreshing as hell. Hits all the markers for a fantastic bottle of wine. Superb.

Nice, true Riesling. Spice. Full body, yet lifted.

Absolutely fabulous dry Riesling with few years of bottle age. Wiff of smoke, cool minerality and some sponti notes. On the palate mouth watering acidity, white stone fruits, green apple, lime and hit of gooseberry. Long long aftertaste of granny smith apple and lime that fades only after 30sec. Great bottle

Was this really only $22?.....ripping, delicious acidity, limey, minerality, with a chunk of under ripe crazy green apple. Wish I bought more. Wmx.
