2020 A to Z Wineworks Riesling
Gorgeously aromatic, the 2020 A to Z Wineworks Oregon Riesling greets with bright fresh citrus (lemon, mandarin orange, lime sherbet, grapefruit) and tropical aromas (green papaya, lychee, pineapple), as well as revealing hints of honeydew, pear, apple, quince, apricot, and floral and savory notes of honeysuckle, rose, bay leaves, sage, and tarragon. The wine initially zips across the palate with lively energy showing a rich texture, noticeable salinity, and notes of the same abundant fruits that greeted the nose. The juicy palate has lovely, mouth-watering acidity balanced by a touch of well-integrated residual sweetness, making it off-dry rather than sweet. A long finish brings the bottle design’s promise of spring to the last sip assuring that the 2020 A to Z Wineworks Oregon Riesling will be a crowd-pleaser.
