Fess Parker Riesling Santa Barbara County 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes While this is a slightly off-dry wine, it retains a bright, crisp acidity, and is perfectly matched to a wide array of foods. The aromatics and flavor profile are exotic and inviting, with notes of white flowers, Lychee nut, lemon rind, yellow peach, passion fruit and honeydew melon on the nose and mouth. This wine pairs seamlessly with Thai and Vietnamese cuisine, and is also the ideal sipping wine.

This Riesling is well balanced, off-dry in style, and sure to delight the senses for a refreshing experience. On the nose, floral hints of honeysuckle abound with notes of orange peel, allspice and lychee nut. With its refreshing acidity, flavors of peaches, honey, apricot and pineapple shine through on the palate.

Medium-bodied, with round ripe apple, melon and peach flavors that have spice, mineral and floral accents and juicy acidity. Drink now.
