I have not had a riesling in years. I picked this one because it was rated an extra dry wine and extra dry is how I like my whites. If this was extra dry, it may have been leaning close to just dry, but regardless, it was good. Nice flavors.
The 92 rating was based on the complexity. As not appealing that it may sound, I was very excited to get the unique aromas that I have read about for reislings. In this wine, aromas of kerosene, but mainly citronella. Excited for my next riesling.
