2017 Riesling Nelson Ranch Vineyard

Originating in the Rhine region of Germany, Riesling is known for its flowery aromas and highly expressive flavors. Our 2017 Nelson Ranch Riesling shows floral aromas and remarkable balance.


TASTING NOTE:   Fruity and fresh-tasting ripe peach and honeysuckle waft up from the glass before white peach and nectarine flavors hit the tongue.  This elegant off-dry wine also shows hints of citrus blossom and lychee.  

FOOD PAIRING:  Spicy foods complement this balanced and expressive wine.  This slightly off-dry wine matches a wide variety of dishes.

The Sommelier Company  |  91 points
"This wine opens with soft lychee and zesty lemon fruit nose over just as prominent a beeswaxy and flint mineral palate.  With time the wine turns floral and nutty... fresh, clean European-style."  - 2016 vintage
