incredible fruity nose... very crisp... fruit forward with a smooth finish.
External Reviews for Chateau Montelena Riesling Potter Valley
Aromas of apple, minerals and crushed stone. Fat, sweet and easygoing, but with more verve to its apple and pear flavors than the 2007 version. The 4.6 grams of residual sugar contribute to the impression of texture. (I preferred this wine to the more exotic, honeyed 2009 version, which came across as distinctly sweeter, even a bit dessert-like.) I suspect with its 5 grams of residual sugar, Montelena's 2009 Riesling from Potter Valley is a very popular wine that undoubtedly flies out of their tasting room. Offering abundant peach and apricot notes, it is a seductive, fresh, lively white that is best drunk over the next 1-2 years.
