Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. While clean and lively, this firm, faintly sweet effort comes up a bit stinting in fruit, and its brief frontal notes of green pears and citrus too quickly fade while its finish is compromised by suggestions of both bitterness and heat.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

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.

Winery Notes: Our vineyards are near Monterey's Pacific coast where the cool maritime climate allows the graps to develop vibrant acidity. We cold-ferment gently pressed grapes, then finish the wine without oak aging to reveal bright citrus and floral characters. Loredona Riesling displays crisp white peach and honeydew melon flavors. Enjoy with spicy Asian cuisine, sushi, and light salads.

Fruit for the 2009 Loredona Riesling was harvested during the early morning hours on the fi rst days of October. Grapes arrived at the winery still cool and the must was cold settled for 48 hours before being racked into stainless steel tanks. The juice was then inoculated with specially selected yeast strains developed to enhance the delicate aromas and rich mouthfeel of this varietal. A slow fermentation occurred over three weeks at cool temperatures to preserve a bright fruit character. The resulting wine is pleasingly fresh and crisp. - Winery

Winemaker's 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.
