Wow. What a super Riesling at an everyday price. Shows a brilliant crispness and minerality that scours and cleanses the mouth, followed by savory citrus, green apple, spice, wildflower and honey flavors. But the finish is totally dry.
If you like your Rieslings on the sweet side, this pretty wine is for you. It’s brisk in Central Coast acidity, with citrus, peach, honeysuckle and spice flavors that finish clean and long.
Riper and sweeter than the wonderfully dry 2007, more like an off-dry German Riesling, but with the same crisp Central Coast acidity. Shows honeyed flavors of pineapples, peaches, vanilla and wildflowers.
This is bottled in one of those tall, thin Alsace-type bottles, and while it’s technically a dry table wine, it could almost be a dessert wine. There’s a sugary edge to the peach, pineapple, honey and wildflower flavors. With crisp acidity, the wine is basically off-dry.
