2018 A to Z Wineworks Riesling
Brilliant and clear with emerald highlights, the 2018 A to Z Wineworks Oregon Riesling is expressive and expansive on the nose. Initial lime zest and tangerine aromas mingle with gooseberry, apricot, meringue, honey, mint, jasmine, gardenia, and green tea. The palate is impeccably balanced with refreshing, mouth-watering acidity and a bare touch of sweetness. It is bright, intense and exotic with ample richness and texture that lingers, finishing clean, fresh and juicy. Fun and serious all at the same time, this wine will gain in complexity over the next ten years, but it would be a shame to wait that long. Although delicious by itself, this is an excellent food wine that pairs well, even with spicy dishes.
