"The 2015 Dry Riesling, just the second vintage of this label, comes in with just 5.1 grams per liter of residual sugar and 12.5% alcohol. Along the lines of the 2014, this is very dry, rather piercing and quite focused. The 2014 might have a bit more energy and this might have a bit more flavor. Call it two sides of the same coin (although this is more unevolved and thus a little more subject to projections). They are pretty similar. If forced to choose, I probably had a minor preference for the very precise 2014, but reasonable minds might differ and that preference might just be based on the 2014 having an extra year in which to settle down. There were 1,800 cases produced."
This is a somewhat unusual producer—a collaboration between Kelby Russell (winemaker for Red Newt) and Thomas Pastuszak (wine director at Eleven Madison Park and NoMad). It looks like a promising venture.

"A shimmering silver-yellow color, on the nose this Ries- ling brings aromas of shale, crushed stone & minerals, as well as fruit tones of ripe apricot, golden apple and baked lemon. An intense burst of acidity hits the palate, carrying along with it flavors of ginger, lemon and lime zest, and golden peach that carry into a long, mineral-laced finish."~WINERY NOTES
