Solstice Vineyard Riesling 2008
The wine shows notes of peach and kiwi with a very subtle and delicate nose. This is a solid wine with broad shoulders on the palate and some pear and lemon flavors. The masculinity of this wine comes from a high phenolic content combined with a 13.5% ethanol and a 1.14% Residual Sugar. For all this, the wine is not sweet and shows perfect balance. The wine is truly cellar worthy and will age for a very long time (10 plus years).
Editorial Reviews for Solstice Vineyard Riesling
Nicely floral with hints of lemon verbena accenting the citrus fruit with everything bound together with a lovely, light honey aroma. Light and fresh on entry with a really waif like structure. This is lightweight and transparent with nuanced floral, heirloom apple and lightly honied flavors. Very easy to drink and while not soft is does dance across the palate. The finish shows very good intensity and fine persistence of flavor. This is neither particularly sweet, nor fruity and would show exceptionally well with food. 89pts
