Loredona Riesling Monterey 2007

Member Review by ttutony:

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.

Whether hailing from Old World Italy or New World California, the one common theme in every world-class wine is its "sense of place."

Whether hailing from Old World Italy or New World California, the one common theme in every world-class wine is its "sense of place." The French term this reflection of locale "terroir", literally "ground or soil." Simply put, it means that the wine's character speaks directly to the place it was grown. Loredona wines are true to this ideal. Crafted from our vineyards located in the best growing regions throughout California, they are a true reflection of the land on which they are grown. Our Riesling and Pinot Grigio embody the sun, wind, fog, and soils of Monterey's San Bernabe Vineyard, and our Viognier captures the warmth and cooling breezes of our Lodi Clay Station Vineyard.

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.

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.

Wow. What a super Riesling at an everyday price. Shows a brilliant crispness and minerality that scours and cleanses the mouth, followed by savory citrus, green apple, spice, wildflower and honey flavors. But the finish is totally dry.
