Vineland Estates 2009 Riesling - Dry
I've been waiting to try this yet-to-be-released Riesling for some time, at least since trying the semi-dry and the St. Urban Riesling from the same year ... I was finally secreted a bottle by the winemaker himself - and I can definitely tell you the wine was worth the wait (and will be once released). The nose is lemon-lime, green apple and wet stone - in other words lots of acid and mineral. On the palate that continues, the minerality and acidity are off-the-chart giving you the cheek-sweats; there's also a crisp green apple finish that's long and lingering ... this fabulous '09 has lots of zip and zing with bite ... a good one to age over the next 10+ years or for enjoying the summer with. Price: $13.95 - Rating: **** 1/2+
