A racy wine with fragrant white flower blossoms, kumquat and citrus rind aromas and flavors wrapped around a core of delicious minerality. Lively and pure, with balanced acidity and just a trace of residual sugar to give the wine a vibrant mouthfeel and long, satisfying finish.

Minerality is much debated, but there is no question that, to the extent it exists, this wine has it, with plentiful aromas of caliche and wet rock, followed by notes of lime and flowers. The palate drinks dry, full of citrus flavors, tightly wound with electric acidity. It's full of flavor and class, with its best days in front of it. Drink from 2023.

Honeyed green apples, hints of lychee, and baking spice notes all emerge from the 2019 Poet's Leap Riesling, which is consistently one of the top examples of this variety from the New World. Medium-bodied, with a clean, mineral-laced style on the palate, it has notable acidity and a subtle off-dry style that's going to be incredibly versatile on the dinner table.

Pale, bright straw-yellow. Pure, subtle scents of green apple, lime oil, anise, licorice, ginger and dusty herbs, with riper notes of white stone fruits emerge with air. Penetrating, flavorful wine with an initial impression of sweetness (11 grams per liter residual sugar) leavened by ripe, harmonious acidity (8.3 g/l) and accents of flowers, ginger and herbs. Still some CO2 to be absorbed. Already delicious and enticing in the middle palate, this wine may give greatest pleasure in its youth as it strikes me as a bit less sappy than the 2018 edition. But despite its essentially easygoing nature, it held up nicely in the recorked bottle.

Floral and pretty, with supple lemon, apricot and jasmine blossom tones that gather hints of flint on the finish. Drink now. 4,200 cases made.
