Mari Vineyards 2017 Old Mission Peninsula Dry Riesling
Floral and slate-y, the nose shows subtle orchard fruit notes, but is more about the floral and minerally qualities.
Dry but far from shrill (like some dry riesling can be) there is a nice bit of concentration on the mid-palate with more flowers but also pear and an intriguing mix of both lemony and savory herbs. The texture is a bit gritty with nervy acidity and a long, minerally finish.
