This beautiful Riesling from Chateau Lafayette Reneau opens with a delicate prickle of acidity that’s wonderfully enticing on the tongue. Lush with aromas of ripe yellow peaches and nectarines, it’s balanced artfully with a sharp, minerally edge and bright lemony acidity. Finishes quite dry.
Tangerine skins, fresh pears and a hint of petrol combine into an invigorating perfume on this fascinating Riesling. While initially soft with white peach and floral notes, the palate turns zippy and fresh with a slate- and chalk- laced minerality and a clean, lemony finish.
Despite its “dry” label, this Riesling has a touch of sweetness. A Gewürz-like nose of spicy lychee and rose petal dominates, with some aromatic mint notes. In the mouth, the fruit is more generic and candied, but has nice hints of mineral. Finishes with spice and citrus pith.
Bright, aromatic and unfolding, the nose on this Riesling hints at enticing flavors to come. On the palate, the wine is racy and fresh, with flavors of apples and citrus and a spicy finish. Fun and great for solo sipping or pairing with spicy cuisine.
