90(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2010

(11.9% alcohol, 3.7 grams r.s. and 9.1 acidity; from granite-rich soil) Bright, pale medium yellow. Aromas of soft citrus fruits, spices and flint. Broad, rich, seamless and dry but youthfully imploded, with elevated but harmonious acidity dominating today. Finishes strong and very long, with terrific lemony lift. I like the balance of this riesling, but it will need patience.
