2016 2016 Poet's Leap
- Winemaker Gilles Nicault
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Riesling
This is a standout. Lime citrus and some more savory wet-stone notes. Really exciting nose. The palate delivers a pithy lime and apple impression. A fresh drink-now style that's gently off-dry.
The 2016 Poet's Leap is very pretty, offering up aromas of lime, lemon oil, white flowers and very subtle petrol that wouldn't be out of place in the Mosel. On the palate, it's light to medium-bodied, racy and mouthwatering, with lovely intensity and purity, concluding with a stony finish. It's a beautiful wine and carries a very modest price tag.
Smart Buy. Snappy and refined, offering expressive star fruit and slate aromas that lead to sleek apricot and spice flavors.
