Such incredible Eola-Amity Hills Riesling. Bill has some serious talent. Such finesse, nimbleness, and purity coexisting with dense concentration. Perfect balance of RS in this homage to the Spätlese Prädikatswein Rieslings of Germany. Honestly rivals some pretty stellar German examples, IMO. Pours a pale to medium (-) intensity straw hue. Medium (+) concentration of aromatics of ripe white peach, pure wet slate minerality, Thai basil, cardamom, a slight sesame oil savoriness, some slight lees influence, and jasmine and honeysuckle floral notes. On the palate, there's more ripe stone fruit, an extra jolt of pure slate mineral freshness, cardamom, honeycomb, and jasmine floral tones. High acid, moderate RS (~35g/l), light to medium (-) body with great supple texture from lees and RS. Alcohol is decently low and refreshing at 10%. Impeccable balance, great length and complexity. Seriously killer stuff.

Ripe stone fruits, minerals, med + acid, off dry. My favorite Paetra Riesling to date - great with spicy Thai curry!
