More information on wine critics and ratings
Intense aromas of pear, ginger, Asian spice market and tropical flowers leap out of the glass. The fruit is equally confident on the palate with a delicious purity and focus. The laser like precision builds and becomes surprisingly broad and textural, for the long and dry finish. A classic that, whilst alluring now, will be very long lived.

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2017)
Lime zest accents peach sorbet on the nose of the 2017 Dry Riesling. This medium-bodied wine is so vibrant, fresh and invigorating, it's a bit anomalous to be tasting it on one of the coldest days of the year here in New York. It's more of a summer wine, brisk, refreshing and crisp without being hard or angular, those edges rounded off by lees contact, then polished on the long, pristine finish.

Quite simply this is one of the most outstanding Malbecs Argentina has ever produced. Nuanced red fruits, mineral notes of wet stone and graphite and a very long finish. An ageworthy wine.
