Poet’s Leap Riesling 2006

Posted by

Poet’s Leap is part of the Long Shadows project in Washington. This project is bringing some of the top wine makers from around the world to produce a single wine based on their expertise. This particular Riesling was made by Armin Diel of Schlossgut Diel.

This is a great buy and shows the potential of Washington for Riesling. A lemony-yellow in the glass (and quite dark for Riesling) this had citrus, apple and pear on the nose and palate. I loved the incredible body, structure and length of this wine. By far the best Riesling I’ve had in BC at this price point.

Excellent
$35 at Everything Wine, $40 at Kits Wine Cellar
