Fess Parker Riesling Santa Barbara County 2007

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Wine Tasting NotesThis off-dry White Riesling displays prominent peach, floral, apricot and pineapple elements. It is not a dessert wine but, rather, a semi-sweet (3.5% residual sugar) white wine with a balanced, bracing acidity to be enjoyed with a wide array of foods. Some suggested pairings are with Asian dishes, spicier foods, Summer salads, chilled soups, cheeses, fruits and fruit based desserts. Best served slightly chilled.

But, as Fess’ daughter, Ashley explains, “ Fess is from Texas, so he can’t do anything small. “The Fess Parker Winery and Vineyard now farms almost 700 acres on four vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County.
