Nice richness to mid-palate, surprising minerality and really long finish. Really shows that NZ can make world-class Riesling.Peter Granoff
Honey and orange on the nose – on the palate orange and peach. Fuller in style but still light in body.Theresa Evans
Sommelier, Porter House
…a delightful Riesling with an old world profile. It has a good concentration yet elegant with lovely finish. It was one of my favorite wines of 9 blind tasting at the Porter House.Kiyama Hiromi
Loved (the) aromatics, minerality…very well made.Christie Dufault

Forward, fruity nose; felt like a New World Wine; very clean and balanced.Roger Dagorn
….the palate was dry with high acidity and flavors of petrol, citrus and a hint of honey lingering in the long finish.Tracy Ellen Kamens - Grand Cru Classes

AWS Excitement in Rochester, NY
True & Daring's Riesling was front and center in Rochester, NY earlier this month for the American Wine Society's annual conference. The conference draws several hundred wine enthusiasts each year for a couple days of tastings and seminars. Wine consumers come from all across the country to further educate their palates and do a bit of networking on the side. Tracy Kamens, head of education at the Society of Wine Educators, presented on a topic near and dear to our hearts: There's More to New Zealand than Sauvignon Blanc. We all love NZ's SB, but the near-perfect climate of the country produces many other excellent white wines. It particulary loves aromatic varietals, and Riesling is one of the top when it comes to aromatics. True & Daring was one of the 8 wines presented at the conference. Great cheers were given to the depth and complexity of True & Daring 2007 at the conference. Look for True & Daring at future events around the country! We sure are having fun getting around.
