The 2009 The Composer Riesling was finished with 1.6% residual sugar. Light straw-colored, it offers up a superb aromatic array of mineral, petrol, spring flowers, citrus, and a hint of tropical fruits. It is essentially dry to just off-dry on the palate due to a pH of 3.02 and 7.4 g/L of Total Acidity. Made in a Kabinett style with a crispness and laser-like focus on the palate as well as outstanding concentration, it should evolve for several years and drink well for a decade.

Very pale, green-tinged color. Aromatic nose combines flowers, lime leaf and wild herbs. Juicy and perfumed in the mouth, with brisk, fruit-driven flavors of quince, white peach and pear. There's nothing overripe about this beautifully balanced, varietally accurate riesling, which tastes drier than its 16 grams per liter r.s. would suggest. The pH is a low 3.02 and the alcohol is 12.5%, according to Billo Naravan. This was done in 95% stainless steel and 5% neutral oak.

Light and tangy, this is off-dry but balanced with zingy acidity, offering citrus and apple flavors that linger gently. Drink now through 2013. 226 cases made.
