Fetzer Johannisberg Riesling United States California Mendocino County White 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Bright apricots, apples, peaches - theres a bushel basket of flavors and aromas in every glass. The wine is delicate, yet full and pairs wonderfully well with spicy Thai or Asian foods, as well as traditional holiday foods like baked ham or turkey. Theres dried fruit and zesty lemon on the nose, with notes of lavender, jasmine and rose petal. As you taste, the crisp acid balances nicely in a well structured wine that offers peaches, pineapple and pear in a smooth, rich, mellow finish. Slightly sweet, but barely noticeable with the fruit-forward flavors.

Pretty good wine. I will keep this in mind and most likely purchase again.

The Fetzer Johannisberg Riesling is a bright, pale yellow in color. In the nose, rich aromas of pear and apricot meld with heady honeysuckle. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied, with fresh, floral aromas accented by notes of apricot and peach. The finish is generous and full.
