Food Pairings for Chateau Montelena Riesling Potter Valley
Solid effort and great value. Nose has some petroleum and apricot with a tart, fresh taste with layers of lime. Good acid and decent finish. Tasted at Pres Club in SF. Was room temperature ... think would have been better if chilled a bit.
The wine is bright, brilliant yellow gold in color, the deep gold a true Botrytis effect. The nose offers a wafting of perfume, with aromas of honeysuckle, Crenshaw or white melon, and a very pleasing varietal spice. On the palate it is simply “juicy-juice” tasty, bright, and awfully refreshing. The blend of flavors follows the nose, with melon and citrus, and moves on to a crisp, clean, refreshing finish. It’s an all around summer and picnic wine, and the spicy Riesling fruit is a great match with many cuisines, from Asian to sweet scallops. This is the one wine I recommend serving right out of the fridge.
