Beautiful fresh-pineapple aroma with hints of yellow grapefruit zest, candied lemon and graphite. Excellent balance of stone-fruit juiciness, medium body and citrusy freshness. Quite a compact mid-palate, then an impressive finish with mineral tension and a graphite note. Drink or hold.

The 2020 Dry Riesling comes in with seven grams of residual sugar and 12.1% alcohol. This is a blend of vineyards, often a very good value in the somewhat pricey lineup. It is again. This year, in its youth, it has a touch of sugar around the edges, a friendly feel and a lush finish. It doesn’t have the steely hints that, relatively speaking, the 2019 could sometimes project, granting that they are not here together. They look the same on paper, but at least from recollection, they are at least a little different in style, feeding into the stereotypes of the 2019/2020 vintage styles. There is certainly reasonable acidity on the finish here with some tension cutting the fruit and sugar, but this is firmly in the friendly puppy style. If someone told me it was close to a semi-dry, I wouldn’t necessarily have been shocked. The very good news, though, is that it is simply delicious, likely to be a crowd-pleaser and something that will put smiles on faces at a very nice price.
