Wines: 2007 Estate Riesling (88 pts Wine Enthusiast)
This Riesling is just about dry but not sticky and it has enough weight that the fruit balances out like a perfectly stacked mille feuille of apricots and white peaches. How refreshing to have an example of domestic Riesling that is not syrupy sweet, has plenty of acid and offers cleansing minerality between sips. At 12% alcohol it is the kind of wine to be enjoyed poolside and don’t feel guilty if you cant wait until noon. It is priced to sell, so stock up and see how long you can keep it in your cellar. Go.
