These Robert Stein Rieslings seem unstoppable. Be it the new releases of the dry Riesling, those with residual sugar or these museum releases, just sit back and embrace the beauty. This Museum Release 2017 is available exclusively for members as well as those who partake in a museum tasting flight at the cellar door ($20). It was a thrill to taste this at the cellar door with winemaker Jacob Stein.
Age has done its thing showing typical characteristics of kerosene, lanolin, beeswax and fresh linen. Honeyed tones roll through the mouth with a range of lemony things - preserved lemon, concentrated lemon juice and some lemon zest. It's a wine that just sizzles and still looks so fresh despite its six years. The focused acidity is on fire and caps off an excellent wine. Lovers of aged Riesling will love this.
