These Riesling grapes are sourced from the rocky river bed of the Arroyo Seco. The rocky soil allows for great drainage and minerality that is pervasive in this wine. This Riesling is just dry with bright minerality, grapefruit and lemon with a hint of flowers.

Wine EnthusiastThere's a honeyed character to the nose of this bottling, along with lemon cream, orange cake and a slight nuttiness. The palate shows the slightest hint of sweetness, but it slips to the background quickly, allowing the pecan, seared orange and baking spice elements to shine, with a fresh spray of lemon wedge and a creeping sense of petrol toward the finish.
