Williamette Riesling 2008

A semi-sweet medium bodied Germanic-style wine. Delicate peach and lychee aromas lead into explosive mouth-filling stonefruit flavors featuring dried apricot and a steely acidity. Notes of pineapple contribute to a clean, well-formed fruit to acid balance. The tart rhubarb finish lingers into spicy red pepper flakes in the mid-palate, refreshing and mouth watering.

Pairs well with sushi, spicy Asian dishes and BBQ ribs. Serve well chilled on the table and allow to warm in your glass for optimal enjoyment of aromas and flavor.

critical acclaim:
“Light and refreshing, a delicate style that hides its sweetness with lively acidity, playing its lemon and grapefruit flavors artfully. Drink now through 2013.”  Wine Spectator 89 Points
