Once again Woodward Canyon has crafted a dense and powerful dry Riesling from DuBrul vineyard grapes. It strikes me as Australian in style, the perfect pairing of New World fruit and an almost austere minerality. Lingering notes of sweet grapefruit, orange, tangerine and lemon rind carry into a lush finish that keeps adding new flavors—ginger, apple, honey graham and more.
