Beautiful in color with a hint of green on the edge, this wine needs a few more months to reveal its potential and will age gracefully another few years. The nose is developed and shows a hint of mineral flavor associated with good ripeness and acidity and a lingering clean and dry finish. It is ready to drink now but has the potential to age another five years.

Wine & Spirits(2001 Vintage) A deep, bright gold, with just a suggestion of green. An open nose; ripe apple/peach aroma is quite distinctly Riesling in character, with good freshness, sappy concentration and focus, and an elegant style. Very good indeed! The palate also shows elegance, with plenty of apple/peach flavor, plump and fleshy juiciness, and good mineral. Delicious! Good body, some richness, balanced and smooth, dry, with modest-good acidity.
