Lean and spry, this invigoratingly dry Riesling highlights a sense of minerality over fruit. Layers of slate and chalk penetrate the palate, allowing momentary glimpses of tart melon and tangerine to peep through. It's a refreshing, zesty wine ideal alongside rich, creamy fare, and enjoyable now through 2017.
