Fresh and pure, this off dry Riesling is loaded with expressive aromatics and flavors of ripe pear, white nectarine, apricot and wet stone minerality. A welcoming richness and vibrant mouth feel, led by the wine's lemon-lime acidity, delivers a clean and lengthy finish.
Inspired by the greatest wines of Germany and crafted by one of Germany's most highly acclaimed Riesling producers, Armin Diel, proprietor of the renowned Schlossgut Diel.
From an especially cool vintage that favored acidity and citrus, this Poet's Leap is a pretty wine, vibrant and full across the palate, with a mix of apple and peach flavors. Clean and balanced, it adds nuances of tea and finally a hint of honey in the extended finish." -Wine Enthusiast, Editors' Choice, 93 Points
As its devoted admirers know, Riesling can be a complex and very serious wine, and this latest lovely from Poet's Leap is an intense, beautifully balanced, slightly sweet version that smacks of minerals, fresh limes and a bit of pineapple and citrus. It tastes of fruit rather than sugar and it shows tremendous length with the kind of firm acid spine that guarantees it will be around and in increasingly good shape for many years to come. - Connoissuers Guide, 92 Points
This tangy wine has presence and depth, with a tart edge to the delicate sweetness, as apple and floral flavors linger on the finish.-Wine Spectator, Score: 90 Points
