This is a white made from the Olasrizling grape more commonly known elsewhere as Welschriesling or Italian Riesling and has no relationship to Riesling.  12.5% ABV.  Silvery/gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose has Meyer lemons, pears, smoke and minerals.  Light bodied.  On the palate, this has tart apples, pears and slight orange citrus notes.  A bit of almonds on the finish.  It is refreshing with strong acidity.  This should drink well for the next five to seven years.  It will work better with food.  Smoked whitefish should be a nice pairing.
