Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard 2015 Dry Riesling
One of the best sub-$20 dry rieslings tasted this year. Aromas of peachy stone fruits, Bartlett pears and orange peel are accented by a distinct river rock note. Labeled dry, but definitely shows fruit sweetness. Nice concentration on the palate -- almost unctuous in its peachy tropicality. Shows nice acidity, but isn't made in the super-nervy style. Better balanced than many of those lemon-water styled dry rieslings.
