2019 MaidenStoen "Lafond Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Riesling (Previously $25)

SKU #1498697 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Warm tones of seared lemon peel, crisp and dried apple and apple blossom show on the dynamic nose of this bottling, which comes from vines that are more than 45 years old. There’s a flashy zing of acidity on the sip, where flavors of nectarine, Rainier cherry and chiseled sandstone cling to a relentlessly taut texture.(MK) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

K&L Notes

Winery Notes: "When Richard Sanford was planting own rooted Chardonnay vines just down the road, Pierre Lafond was planting his 65 acre vineyard in what is now the heart of the Santa Rita Hills. Miraculously, the 1972 Riesling block still resides - windblown and elderly, a complete eyesore to all the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay the appellation is now famous for. But, if you understand something that today is a bit unlikely and improbable you can see why this Riesling is so compelling and rare."
