Maidenstoen 2019 Wirz Vineyard Riesling (Cienega Valley)

Editors' Choice

From vines planted in 1964, making them the second oldest Riesling in California, this is a revelatory wine. Tense aromas of lime skin, underripe melon, wet gravel, blossoms and fresh grass lead into an extremely textural and tightly wound sip. Flavors of lime peel, mandarin, lemon bar and melon prove both complex yet approachable. Matt Kettmann
