Loredona Riesling Monterey 2007
Interesting New World take on one of my favorite white wine grapes. Somewhat fuller bodied than a German riesling but still a fairly light wine. Floral, honey, peach, and apple notes were detectable. Off dry sweetness. This is a good wine and is definitely a good value for the price.Add winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

We served this at my sisters wedding, and everyone commented how wonderful this wine was. I received one comment that this wine was too dry, but otherwise all positive reviews were given from the guests. The demographics of the guests ranged from international jet setters to Texas farmers, so this really is a wine for everyone.
this was a gift .... shared it at the RI shore on a 70+ degree late OCT. day with ripe pears and sharp VT cheddar. Wonderful combination of sweet/tart/fruit .... would rate 4/5 for this type use
Was looking for a replacement to Menage a Tois white because couldn't find a retailer. This is even better. Dry and crisp and no after acid reflux which is one of my problems with many white wines.
External Reviews for Loredona Riesling Monterey
This California Riesling is full bodied and dry in style. Without being overly sweet, the flavors of the fruit really shine through. The wine has a fresh, lively bouquet, with all the notable characteristics of a fruit-driven Riesling. It is very fruity and floral, and agreeably elegant on the palate. This is an ideal example of a pure, dry Riesling, clean and focused. Serve with baked brie and sundried tomato pesto.
