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.
