    January 19, 2012 - Light straw color. Strong petrol on nose, with rubber band and lemon zest. On palate, tart lemon, steely, some clay. Finishes tart and dry.

    November 12, 2011 - Mineral, lemon rind, petrol on nose. Lemon, a hint of melon. Quite tart and dry. Med length finish.

    March 27, 2011 - This wine is way overrated at 90+ pts. This is an average to below average Riesling. Completely dry. Hints of lemon and lime but no nice rich fruit on the palate. I have had $3.99 German Riesling better than this wine.

    February 25, 2011 - Unscrewed and poured. Lemons, limes and biscuits on the nose. Very lemon-driven, dry with fierce acidity but not quite enough body to balance it. Definitely more of a food wine. Don't chill this too much - it's downright harsh when it's cold. $20

    January 22, 2011 - Churchill's: Aussie Regionality (Maumee, OH): Lemon cleaning product nose. Huge concentration, lemony, great acidity almost to the point of being sour. Food wine. Dry. Good value at $20
