Bonny Doon The Heart Has Its (2013) Rieslings

Bonny Doon The Heart Has Its (2013) Rieslings, $7.99-$14.99, 86 points, poured a light gold color grading water clear.
The nose was overwhelmingly petrol.
The light-plus body carried a slight sweetness (off-dry), fair to good acidity, and flavors dominated by petrol notes with some apple and hints of guava.
Finished tart on the trailing palate with an innocuous 9.5% alcohol.
Paired okay with our Asian cuisine.
Keep in mind that many like/love warm-weather Rieslings with TDN like notes, but I'm not one of them, and though overall I liked Bonny Doon's expression of this wine (much of the petrol notes abated as the wine warmed), I didn't like it enough to buy it again.
For more on the subject see my post from St Hallett Eden Valley Barossa 2009 Riesling.
