    October 16, 2014 - Attention all dry riesling lovers. If you come to US, you must go to Finger Lakes. I spent a couple of years living near Washington state, the biggest producers of riesling in the country and most of their regular riesling is cloyingly sweet. Even what they call "dry" riesling is really "off-dry". Have these people not tried Alsatian riesling? OK, I may be a bit of a riesling snob and there are some very good off-dry and sweet rieslings around the world (well actually only in Germany in my experience) that have matching acid. Very hard to pull off and not even necessary, in my opinion, given how good dry riesling can be (I am one of a tiny subset of Aussies who are very proud of our dry rieslings). I was in despair, but luckily USA is a big country and New York state goes for dry rieslings in a big way.
    In the nose, I'm getting tropical fruit and caramel apple with good height. Still a little closed but I dare say that this one will age well as it seems very balanced. In the mouth, minerals, sherbet and citrus - big and still good height. On the finish good acid with a hint of buttered popcorn. Moreish. Riesling lovers rejoice!

    August 2, 2014 - Nice nose of tropical fruits and petrol, on the palate, good and balanced with some bitterness on the finish.
