Cousiño-Macul Riesling 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Cousino's winemaking philosophy for Riesling is to harvest fully ripened Riesling and ferment the wine to dryness. To preserve the purity of the fruit, the wine is not aged in wood. The result is an extroverted wine with classic Riesling aromas of apple blossom, lemon-lime and mango. It is medium-full bodied with mouth-filling apricot and Meyer lemon. These flavors lead to a long, refreshing citrus finish. HIghly versatile, this wine is a perfect foil to Asian dishes and delicious as an aperitif.
