I normally drink Riesling well chilled on a warm summer day, but it is in the mid-60′s here in California so – well, this weather kind of feels like summer to me! And Riesling pairs so well with Thai takeout :-) This Riesling is very light in color and the nose has peach and lemon notes. It is not overly aromatic, very subtle. It is lightweight on the midpalate as well, some definite sweetness there. I really liked the crisp clean finish – definite lemon aftertaste.
This is a very well made Riesling with great balance – the slight sugary notes on the midpalate coupled with the crisp acidity on the finish. This would be perfect with Thai or Indian food… I had a honeyed spicy cauliflower dish I may just have to try with this wine :-)
