The seductive nose on this wine reaches right out of the glass and pulls you in. The unctuous palate is pure self-indulgence, with intense notes of peach and mandarin orange. A medium-length finish has enough acidity to carry the high level of residual sugar.
A bit closed at first, then swirling, characteristic Riesling aromas of pears, golden delicious apples and superripe peaches appear. Thick and intense, it’s almost overwhelming in its honeyed richness. Sweet enough to pair with many desserts, but try it with blue-veined cheeses for a special treat.
It is impossible to resist the appeal of the bright watermelon color of this wine. The straightforward nose shows typical Cabernet Franc aromas of strawberry and tobacco leaf while the palate is redolent of ripe honeydew melon. Fresh acidity results in a light impression in the mouth. An impressive effort in a challenging category.
Spicy, floral and with a touch of minerality, this is poised and layered. It’s dense and honeyed on the palate but overall, has a balanced, attractive character. Imported by Bayfield Importing, Ltd.
