2009 Pey-Marin "The Shell Mound" Marin County Riesling
93 points and an Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast: "Pey-Marin's Rieslings have been among the greatest in California, and their 2009 is one of their best yet. The wine is entirely unoaked, and did not undergo the malolactic fermentation, but it was aged on its lees. That allows the acidity to star, and what brilliant acidity it is. Rich and bone dry in steel, mineral, slate, citrus, white peach and Champagne yeast flavors, it takes California Riesling in a whole different direction." (02/11) A refreshingly crisp and dry Riesling organically grown on the chilly western coast of Marin County This is a bright, steely and very delicate aromatic and flavor profile at modest alcohol. No oak, no malo, no blending showcases purity of well-drained, mature site and unique clonal provenance. The frigid vineyard site provides for naturally high acidity, a hallmark of the great Rieslings of northern Europe.—K&L Wine Merchants.
