Sunday I’m in Benmarl Winery and their 2008 Riesling was just off their bottling line. Straight from bottling line to glass. I did give it a taste and purchased a bottle to bring home and have a real good taste.
I uncorked the bottle 3 days later. I might not have given it enough time to rest, but I was anxious.
On the nose I got pineapple with soft peach, apricot and hints of citrus in the background. The taste was soft and crisp with a little acidity and lime. Not much other fruit. However on the finish there was hints of apricot, with green apple on a long finish.
This wine sells in their tasting room for $16.99.
