LONG SHADOWS Riesling 'Poet's Leap' 2016

Made by Armin Diel of Schlossgut Diel, this off-dry wine opens with aromatics of nectarine, wet stone, Granny Smith apple and suggestions of nutmeg. Showing wonderful poise and minerality, the wine glides through the mid-palate onto a mineral and wet stone laced finish. Flavors of Pazzaz apple, mulberry, kumquat and cantaloupe persist. While this shows wonderful elegance and fruit at this juncture, this will cellar gracefully for a decade. This is just an outstanding value wine from Long Shadows. (Best 2017-2026) - May, 2017 (OB)
