Red Newt Cellars Tango Oaks Riesling 2013


SKU 18385


Tango Oaks vineyards is located less than one half mile from Red Newt Cellars on a fruit growing site that dates back centuries. This Riesling features exotic aromas of grapefruit, Pippin Apple, and nectarine that hide a surprisingly dry and crisp mid palate. With flavor of white peach and Thai basil, it continues to balance the warmth of ripe fruit against a distinct and refreshing minerality. Creating a wine that is intriguing and pairs remarkably well with food.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Riesling "Tango Oaks Vineyard" is not yet released (set for July 1), but it is at least as good as the 2012-and maybe better. It seems fresher and livelier, for one thing, and I don't think that is merely a symptom of being a year younger. Simply gorgeous in aromatics and intensity of flavor, it may not quite have the concentration of the 2012, but it seems to do everything else better. Rather dry (just 5 grams per liter of residual sugar), its underlying acidity supports the fruit and pounds it into the palate. It's a beauty.

Wine EnthusiastZesty citrus and crushed-mineral tones take center stage in this gossamer-light wine. Bracing and lean, it offers invigorating refreshment and a cool touch of alpine green on the finish.
