WineDiva's Review

Superb, ample, enduring.
Riesling fans unite in their love of this old vines version, born from a single block on Tantalus' sustainably-farmed estate vineyard. Planted in 1978, making them oldest Riesling vines in the valley, this concentrated wine has elegance and maturity written all over it. Beeswax, marmalade, green apples, stone fruit, key lime and wildflower aromas slide into a weighty palate with substance and power. It has a grounded earthiness and slippery texture. Taut and defined the finish is enduring and lip-smacking.
An ample wine, simply superb
