Wine Review: This pale straw colored Riesling opens with a fragrant apricot and bees wax bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and displays lots of juicy ripe fruit. Those fruits are a ripe Bosc pear and apricot blend with notes of pineapple and nicely integrated mild minerality. I also detected hints of tangerine. This is a pretty complex Riesling. The finish is semi-dry and fades away nicely. This Riesling would pair nicely with Ritz encrusted baked haddock. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Our 2014 Terracea Riesling exhibits intense aromas of rose petals, white flowers, nectarine, honeycomb, ginger and sweet, juicy pineapple. There's a beautiful, harmonious balance between the wine's residual sugar and high natural acidity, for full body and a crisp, lingering finish.
