Dry Riesling (2015)

Dry Riesling – Wine Advocate – 90 Points

The 2015 Dry Riesling, just the second vintage of this label, comes in with just 5.1 grams per liter of residual sugar and 12.5% alcohol. Along the lines of the 2014, this is very dry, rather piercing and quite focused. The 2014 might have a bit more energy and this might have a bit more flavor. Call it two sides of the same coin (although this is more unevolved and thus a little more subject to projections). They are pretty similar. If forced to choose, I probably had a minor preference for the very precise 2014, but reasonable minds might differ and that preference might just be based on the 2014 having an extra year in which to settle down. There were 1,800 cases produced.
