2014 A to Z Oregon Riesling
Initial aromas of the 2014 A to Z Oregon Riesling are of pear, apple sauce, and kiwi followed by candied rose petal, lime leaf, clove and mace. Juicy and textured with off-dry sweetness, the wine has good weight and balance while finishing long with zippy acidity and lingering ripe fruit flavors. A versatile food wine, the A to Z Riesling pairs exceptionally well with spicy dishes.
2013 A to Z Oregon Riesling
A to Z's 2013 Riesling has fresh aromas of citrus, tangerine peel, ripe melon, sea shells and white flowers. Time in glass reveals aromas of pear, white raisin, lemongrass, guava and kiwi. The aromas carry through to the attack with citrus, wet stone and raspberry. The acidity on the mid-palate is balanced by a hint of sweetness. The finish is long and clean with lingering flavors of lime and wet stone. Complete, complex and beautiful, this wine will gain in age and complexity over the next ten years, but is already drinking great now. A versatile food wine, it pairs exceptionally well with spicy foods which play nicely against the dynamic layers of this Riesling.
