90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2010
($30; from a 1974 planting) Very pale, green-tinged color. Aromatic nose combines flowers, lime leaf and wild herbs. Juicy and perfumed in the mouth, with brisk, fruit-driven flavors of quince, white peach and pear. There's nothing overripe about this beautifully balanced, varietally accurate riesling, which tastes drier than its 16 grams per liter r.s. would suggest. The pH is a low 3.02 and the alcohol is 12.5%, according to Billo Naravan. This was done in 95% stainless steel and 5% neutral oak.
