  5. Sheldrake Point Dry Riesling

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#18597

    RP89+89+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate -
    The 2020 Dry Riesling comes in with eight grams of residual sugar, 9.5 of total acidity and 11.9% alcohol. This is listed as dry, but it is a friendly "Dry Riesling," closer to medium-dry. Fruity, with much exuberance in it is youth, this is pretty delicious. It finishes with more sugar and fruit than evident structure. From what I am seeing, this is a fairly typical profile in 2020—a little less energy up front and hints of richness. I suspect the exuberant profile will calm down a bit with a year of age, allowing this more opportunity to show off its good structure. For the moment, let’s be a little conservative, but I think this will be better in a year. No matter what, this is very nicely priced. There were 577 cases produced. (Mark Squires)

  6. Wagner Riesling Dry

    Estate Bottled
    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#2129

    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 3rd Jun 2021
    The 2020 Dry Riesling comes in with 4.7 grams per liter of residual sugar, seven grams of total acidity and 12.8% alcohol. Rich, ripe and fruity, this exuberant Dry Riesling lacks a bit of an edge on opening, but that is mostly about perception at the moment. That is, it seems lush, deep and luscious. It tastes great. The acidity is initially hidden, while this is more fruit driven at first. I suspect in time that perception will change a bit. As a test, I kept it open for another hour, and the acidity came through much more clearly. This is still very young and was only in bottle for about nine weeks when tasted. It looks like a winner. It is worth leaning up on this for the moment. (Mark Squires)

    Bright lemony fruit mixes with lime zest and white blossoms in this zesty, dry Riesling. It offers vibrancy and lift thanks to juicy acidity, with a crushed stone note trailing off on the finish. (Alexander Peartree)
