2012 Riesling scoops up 92 points in June Wine & Spirits

92 points
Reserved in its fruit, this wine’s robust mineral intensity draws a clean line through to the end. The fragrance of the grape captures scents of dried brush, sage and the floral notes of fresh cream. Pale and rich, this is a dry Riesling to serve with Dungeness crab.

The ‘title’ is a reference to a sculpture honoring an Argentinean journalist who practiced his craft in the 1930s before literally dying for his words. No such drama here, just hopefully some provocative fun.
