Nose: Nice aromas of stone fruits – pear, white peach and a hint of green apple. I also get notes of slate, white pepper and hibiscus.
Taste: This is a very well-made Washington riesling. It has a very harmonious balance of fruit, minerality and acid which lead into a finish that is crisp, dry and hangs around for awhile.
