Lots of grapefruit on the nose here, along with lighter notes of cranberry, strawberry and a hint of tar. There’s plenty of CO2, so this certainly lives up to its name. A bit more acidity would be appreciated as this still manages to be a little clumsy. Sweet, somewhat dark flavors of plummy fruit lay over the palate and turning sweeter on the finish before the fizz cleans everything away. 84pts

The best Riesling I have ever had. I am a big Fan of rieslings and this one takes the cake. I am going to order it for my wedding. I just wish more places had this wine. I came across it in Napa CA at the Bounty Hunter and in San Francisco at 1 location. Please send to Bevmo in Walnut Creek

Not for the faint of heart, this zippy Riesling is floral and weighted, with notes of lime sorbet, rose petals and a hint of fennel. With its racy verve, subtle complexity and just a tinge of sweetness, its a perfect companion for both sweet and spicy dishes...or simply on its own. Refreshingly complex on the palate, it will make you wonder how you emptied your glass so quickly - and have you reaching for another. - WineryAlc: 9.5%RS: 3.3%pH: 3.11TA: 6.28

Lightly sweet and effervescent, with bold apricot and juicy red apple fruit notes. Less sweet than a Moscato d’Asti, but similar in style. Excellent with fruit and cheese trays.

Soft, with a light fizz to the pear and floral flavors. Drink now.

It's normally pretty darned cool in the Alpine Valleys, but 2011 took the mercury to new lows. Grapes were harvested up to 4 weeks later than usual, and yields were particularly low - near ideal conditions for our cold-lovin' Riesling fruit! You'll see intoxicating floral aromatics and vivacious citrus fruits, with great persistence and concentration of flavor. Racy and versatile, it'll pair perfectly with sweet and spicy dishes alike. - WineryREGION : Alpine & King Valleys, VictoriaVARIETALS : Riesling (89%), Muscat Gordo (11%)FERMENTATION : Stainless steelANALYSIS : 9.8% alc/vol | 3.6% RS | 3.21 pH | 6.43 TA

Sweet, but not cloying, with pear, peach and pineapple flavors on a clear, open-textured frame. Drink now.

Refreshingly complex on the palate, it will make you wonder how you emptied your glass so quickly - and have you reaching for another. Not yet reviewed; 2012 vintage rated 88 points by International Wine Cellar: (73% of this fruit was grown in Victoria; 9.5% alcohol): Bright straw. Fresh melon and peach aromas are given a bright edge by notes of white pepper and ginger. A touch of CO2 adds spritzy cut and a pleasing bitterness to the wine's juicy fruit. Supple and open-knit, with good breadth and finishing cling. This is a remarkable value.
