Willamette Valley Vineyards Riesling 2018
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
|Brand||Willamette Valley Vineyards|
This semi-sweet wine opens with vibrant aromatics of citrus, stonefruit and tropics that leap from the glass. The mouthfeel is juicy and luscious with bright acidity that activates the palate for beautiful movement and highlights flavors of peach, tangerine, pear and honeysuckle. The finish is wonderfully persistent with balance of sweetness and refreshing crispness. Food Pairings: Pair with nearly all Asian cuisine including Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese and Indian. The spices will be complemented by the sweetness and refreshing acidity to cleanse the palate. Also enjoy with German-inspired dishes like sausage and schnitzel, Mexican dishes like chile verde and enchiladas, and desserts like fruit tarts and pies.
This is just sweet enough to serve with a light, fruit-based dessert, or simply chill and enjoy as an aperitif. Loaded with fresh fruit flavors of peaches, apricots and pears, it's quite juicy, and the sugar is nicely balanced by ample acidity.
