Poet’s Leap Riesling 2006

A birthday gift from my wife, bought on my first visit to Everything Wine in North Vancouver.

Clear, pale silver-gold appearance. Straightforward Riesling nose with honey, melon, and slate qualities. Good body. But the apricot-honey palate seems to be working somewhat in opposition to the acidity, and a bit of lingering minerality in the length disappoints slightly. Still, a nice drinkable Riesling.
