Wine Basics — Grape Varietals 101: Riesling
Wine Basics — Grape Varietals 301: Riesling
A beautiful whiff of petrol, balanced with orange blossom and icing sugar. Give this one a few years in the cellar to evolve and open to pull out even more of that petrol aroma. The palate is complex, but not complicated: peaches, lime zest, mango, blossom, and tupelo honey to name a few. Full body, clean finish with forever-lingering fruit. If I didn't know any better, I'd think this was quality German Riesling. This is exactly the kind of wine that nerds like me want all wine lovers to embrace. I'd say it's nearly impossible to find a more food-friendly and age-worthy wine at a price point like this.
