The Nicholas family began transforming an abandoned filbert and plum orchard into vineyards in 2001, and now three of its 33 acres are devoted to Riesling. They produce a dry version as well as and this off-dry style, which could also be perceived as dry despite the listing of 2.2% residual sugar. Aromas of Gala apple, lemon and lime peel also hint at sage and fresh-cut potato. On the attack are flavors of Asian pear with more lemon and lime with a finish of garden-fresh cucumber and sliced celery. Enjoy this with shellfish or curries.
