Wine EnthusiastMost of the estate vines used for this blend date back to the mid-1970s. It emphasizes bright citrus flavors, like lemon and lime, with lemon verbena, cilantro and other fresh herb notes that add detail to the finish. A very fine value, it can also age for a decade or longer.

Wine AdvocateFrom 40-year-old vines, the 2016 Riesling Estate offers notions of lime cordial, lemonade and jasmine with a waft of honey-drizzled peaches. It's made in an off-dry style with about 8 grams per liter of residual sugar. Crisp, clean and fresh on the light-bodied palate, there's a compelling yeasty character lending savoriness on the mid-palate and finish.
