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.
