Pretty floral and white grapefruit notes on the palate scream Gewürz, but fresh apple flavors layered in smoke and a chalky, crushed stone minerality make this unusual New Mexico bottling an interesting treat.
Exuberantly perfumed with notes of honey, tangerine and orange flowers, this rich, sweet sparkler is effusive on the palate as well with flavors of ripe melon, fruit cocktail and peach gummy candy.
Sweet scents of strawberry and a very subtle, bordering on watery, offering of flavors makes this rosé from New Mexico one with potential, but no staying power. What’s there is too far toward syrupy. Needs balance.
New Mexico and Riesling seem an unlikely combination but it works in this wine. Scents of almond, apricot and freesia lead to a slightly sweet palate that winds down to a short, soft finish. Drink up.
