Loredona Riesling Monterey 2008
Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 87 Riper and sweeter than the wonderfully dry 2007, more like an off-dry German Riesling, but with the same crisp Central Coast acidity. Shows honeyed flavors of pineapples, peaches, vanilla and wildflowers.~ Wine Tasting Notes The Loredona Riesling offers delicate aromas of honeysuckle, granny smith apples and ripe melon. As you sip the wine, layers of flavors unfold starting with ripe apricot and white peaches moving into Valencia orange and lychee. The wine is quite refreshing, finishing with a pleasant tartness that lingers on the palate. Loredona Riesling is a great match with Asian dishes, seafood chowders and bisques and fresh fruit such as apples, peaches and pears.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Editorial Reviews for Loredona Riesling Monterey
The nicely complex nose features typical floral, and lied honied lemon curd notes with a touch of exotic banana. This is off dry but well balanced with supple, lemony fruit and a nice herbal counterpoint. Simple and easy yet appealing. 84pts
Fantastic wine. Especially since it was sold for $5! Tropical flavors on the nose (peach, pineapple). Nicely balanced on the palate and not too sweet. Sirupy viscosity - almost like a desert wine.
I LOVED this riesling!! Perfect! - Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
Nice riesling! Review I read said bone dry...well, maybe not for me, but I like big reds. Very "riesling-like" aroma. Fruity-slightly floral. Sweet upfront, then tropical fruit and floral. Nice.
We served this at my sisters wedding (as well as the 2007, it was hard to find enough bottles locally), 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.
