Received from Underdog Wine & Spirits for review
“This Riesling starts with a nose that shows hints of lemon chiffon and ripe honeydew. The wine fills the palate with flavors of citrus, lemons and just a hint of sweetness. Creamy and full bodied, it finished with a zesty thirst quaffing zing that leaves the imbiber wanting another glass. It is reminiscent of a lemon cream cupcake. Enjoy with grilled halibut, Indian butter chicken, or simply as an aperitif.”
Our Tasting Notes:
This Riesling reminded me of a lemon tart in liquid form. Lots of bright acidity and zesty-ness in this wine. Although the bottle notes suggest a hint of sweetness, I did not pick up on any sweetness; just lots of tartness from the citrus characteristics. This citrus-centered Riesling is screaming out for a yummy pairing of fish tacos. It would be a perfect summer wine.
