2009 Maddalena Riesling Monterey

Trying a Riesling from Monterey made me want to take a drive down to Monterey…   especially on a beautiful day like today.   The coastline is stunning and Cannery Row is lots of fun!   The Maddalena Riesling has a perfume-like floral nose, also some awesome peach, pineapple and lime.   The mouthfeel is citrusy and a bit sugary, and the finish is… well, pretty darn awesome.   There’s just enough acidity for it not to finish too sweet.   I love the fruit in this wine, and appreciate that it is soft and subtle.   This is a delicious off-dry Riesling and this would be an amazing match for spicy food.
