A bare bit of sweetness is evident here, but the wine is quite nicely balanced, and its central message is one of juicy, very lively, young fruit rather than sugar. It is redolent of fresh pears, key limes and mandarins with a very slight, near-subliminal touch of minerals off to the side, and, like many of its still-nascent vintage mates, it will find greater expression after six to twelve months of rest."

--Connoisseur's Guide to California Wine

 

"This White Riesling is inspired by the wines of Alsace. With hints of apricot, mango and pineapple, this is a wine that's easy to love."

--the Daily Sip

 

"The 2012 Greenwood Ridge Riesling is outrageously acid-driven, so soundly and beautifully made, it scored a double gold out of the chute. Heaven!" --Laura Ness
