This is ripe and showy, strutting peach and mango flavors sequined with sparkly, clear quartz-like minerality. It wins big points for being irresistible, and it will be only more impressive with another decade to reveal more mineral and spice.

Round and very accessible, this Riesling evokes peach and floral notes. It’s balanced on the soft side, but not flabby. Drink now through 2012.

An elegant wine with a full nose of spice, showing nice balance between the fruit and acidity in the mouth, with some pretty mineral character.
