Bel Lago Vineyard 2017 Riesling

There is a bit more petrol here than you’d expect in such a young wine, but it’s not overwhelming. Instead, it brings some complexity to a nose that is driven by grapefruit and white flowers.

Those grapefruity citrus qualities are prominent on an off-dry palate that is juicy and well balanced. There is a hint of petrol here as well as peachy and green apple candy notes as the wine warms just a bit.
