Dh Lescombes New Mexico Dry Riesling 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Hervé Lescombes settled in Southern New Mexico after many years of successful winemaking in Burgundy, France. He carried on his family legacy by planting a small vineyard influenced by European viticulture. From this vineyard, only the highest quality, hand-selected grapes are destined to become D.H. Lescombes wines. Showcasing an old world approach to winemaking focused on balance and subtlety, D.H. Lescombes wines are committed to French oak maturation and are hand-crafted with traditional techniques to create wines of the finest character and distinction.

Tasting Notes:

This is not your typical sweet Riesling, this wine is light in color but bold in flavor, with soft aromas of citrus and a nice minerality. Rich ripe pear, stone fruits and a hint of apricot give flavor to the dry, crisp nature of this wine. Its mild sweetness, coupled with the higher acidity level and crisp finish, leave your mouth clean, fresh and ready for your next sip or bite.
