I enjoyed this wine. Definitely a strong citrus flavor, and on the sweeter side of most rieslings (though not necessarily for American varieties). We drank it with shrimp korma and chana masala. Yummy.

There’s been an explosion of interest recently in Riesling, with sales up a whopping 25 percent last year. While that increase was on a relatively small base, there’s no question that consumers are taking a new look at this long-neglected grape variety. California has had mixed success with Riesling, which has often been planted in the wrong spots. But Jekel, which is owned by Brown-Forman Corp. (Fetzer’s parent company), has a long history with the grape in Monterey, where the cool climate provides a good home for Riesling. In the past, this wine sometimes has been on the sweet side, but the 2007 is just off-dry (about 1 percent residual sugar), and any sweetness is balanced by the wine’s racy acidity. This Riesling also displays flavors of lime, lime blossom and just a touch of tropical fruit (think mango). There’s also a floral component, perhaps because winemaker Charlie Gilmore has blended a smidgen of Muscat with the Riesling. All in all, this Riesling - which is reasonably priced at $12 - is very refreshing and would make a delicious aperitif or a lively companion for spicy Asian food.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Rieslings bouquet is a basket of bright fruits with a burst of orange blossoms and ripe apricots. On the palate, pineapple, melon and apricot dominate the rich, juicy mouthfeel. This crisp, fresh Riesling has perfect off-dry balance to complement most all spicy foods.
