Knappstein Hand Picked Riesling

Knappstein is one of Clare’s most consistently pristine entry-level rieslings and 2012 is one of the greats. Precise lime juice, granny smith apple and lemon blossom carry seamlessly from refined bouquet through a palate of brilliant intensity, unreserved focus and incredible persistence. Layers of chalky mineral structure are bolstered with a touch of subtle, well-gauged phenolic grip. $14 at Dan’s.
