Scott Harvey Riesling 2007
Having gone to winemaking school in Germany, I havve always like making European style Rieslings. there are not too many Riesling vineyards left in Mendocino County. We can be thankful that Greg Nelson has preserved this great Riesling vineyard. The wine is made in a dry style picked at low Brix and high acidity to produce a crisp low alcohol Kabinett style Riesling. Well balanced delicate wine with hints of peaches, pears and tropical fruit. This engaging wine shows fresh water cress, slate, cloves and orange blossoms.

This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Gold Series selection. Scott Harvey’s 2007 Mendocino County Riesling was made in a dry European style from one of the few Riesling vineyards left in the county. This aromatic, Old Vine Riesling comes from a 33-year-old vineyard that produces small yields of flavorful grapes. As a Gold Medal Wine Club Special Selection, we purchased a majority of the 2007 Riesling, and as Gold Series members, you are among the first to sample this delicious, engaging wine. Scott Harvey’s Riesling is well balanced and delicate with hints of peaches, pears and tropical fruit aromas. Fresh watercress, slate, cloves and orange blossom flavors are ever present in this refreshingly crisp wine, making it enjoyable on its own or paired with light summer dishes.

Try the 2007 dry style Riesling with creamy brie cheeses, green vegetable based meals, and scallops. 100% Old Vine Riesling. Enjoy now until 2012.
