    September 20, 2010 - Great wine. Strong botrytis with lots of apricots, floral notes and great acidity. This is light and refreshing with a medium to long finish.
    If Lawgirlt can give a ridiculous score, why can't I?

    Similar wines are made in other Steigerwalt vineyards, with alabaster-limestone influenced soils. Had beauties like this at Castell, for instance.
