With aromas of green-herbal tea, white peaches and lemon-lime — and a subtle talcum powder note — the nose on Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars 2011 Red Oak Vineyard Riesling ($20).

Similarly fruity up front on a juicy, just off-dry palate, it shows grapefruit, lime and Golden Delicious apple flavors on a lighter frame. Focused by not too angular, it straddles the line between mass appeal and riesling-lover appeal.

It finishes dry with a lingering, apple-y ending.
