External Reviews for Chateau Montelena Riesling Potter Valley
In the glass this Riesling has a bright pale yellow hue with good depth of color. The nose is clean, rich and inviting, opening with fresh honeysuckle and apricot jam followed by peach and candied orange notes, riding over a slight hint of oak. The mouthfeel is soft and fleshy, and is dominated by great big peach and apricot flavors along with good firm acidity. It has a nice full length with lots of lichee and a hint of clove on the finish. This Chateau Montelena 2008 Potter Valley Riesling can be likened to a Renoir: big, round and fleshy with soft edges; it is elegant, well composed, and utterly enjoyable.
