Peach and apricot are two flavors that at times dominate a Riesling. This 2010 Whiteceliff Vineyards & Winery Riesling is one of those times.
On the nose I got aromas of stone fruit and sweetness. How does one smell sweetness, I would define it as sweet ripe fruit.
Time to taste…peach is what stands out as the dominate flavor of this Riesling. It was a little rough mid palate with a hint of apricot and a fizz on the finish. The wine did have a touch of sweetness. At least enough for me to recognize that there was some residual sugar in the glass. Yup 1.5% RS in this Riesling. Most people might not be able to detect the RS, but I am very sensitive to sugar and can tell right away.
I know you shouldn’t compare vintages but I really like the 2009 Riesling better.
