Poet's Leap Riesling 2020
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
This shows intense detail and complexity in the aromas of lime zest, wet slate, white peach, flower and a whiff of botrytis. The palate is just a hair off-dry, balanced by electric acidity. It's a textbook picture of Washington Riesling at its best.
The 2020 Riesling Poet's Leap is another sensational effort that is truly one of the great wines of its kind made in Washington. At 1.1 g/L, it shows petrol and wet stones mingling with Japanese pear and gooseberry tones on the nose. The palate is fresh and beautifully textured with outstanding length. Orange blossom water, Sprite and sweetened cantaloupe flavors mingles with crushed wet rock tones. The verve, weight and length of the wine are outstanding.
Such a pretty wine, with a plush yet crisp texture and floral apricot, melon and spiced nut accents that glide on the sleek finish. Drink now. 4,440 cases made.
Juicy green apple, lychee, and tart pineapple notes all emerge from the 2020 Riesling Poet's Leap, a medium-bodied, lively, balanced, impressively textured off-dry Riesling that can be drunk any time over the coming decade or more. It's surprising how well this wine can age, and it's certainly up with the top examples of the variety in Washington State.
