Loredona Riesling Monterey 2011
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. 84ptsAdd winemaker's notes

Balanced riesling with lychee for sweetness balanced with tart green apple and a crisp finish. One of my favorites for the price!
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.
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.
External Reviews for Loredona Riesling Monterey
The 2010 Loredona Riesling shows delicate floral aromas of orange blossom, honeysuckle and white nectarine. On the palate, complex layers of fresh citrus fruit mingle with melon and spicy ginger. A well-balanced and light bodied wine, this Riesling has a refreshing entry and finishes with crisp, juicy acidity. Loredona Riesling is a great match for spicy Asian cuisine, a light tomato salad or braised ham. - WineryAppellation: Monterey, CaliforniaAlcohol: 12.0 % by VolumeResidual Sugar: 2.05 g/100mlTotal Acid: 0.57 g/100mlFinal Ph: 3.06Cases Produced: 18 ,000 ** SOLD OUT **
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.

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
