Tasting Notes: Bottled in an Alsatian flute, suggestive of its style, this new Riesling from Road 13 is an outstanding wine with a lovely, aromatic nose of orange blossoms, pralines, river rocks, lime rind, peach skins and stone fruit. This bone-dry Riesling with strong, citrus acidity, never feels harsh on the palate due to the presence of lush tropical fruit flavours complimenting the stone fruit character. Supremely well balanced, with a moderate-plus, tart finish. Pair with pan-seared scallops or enjoy on its own. Drink now or cellar for further development. Drink 2010-2016.
