Leonard Kreusch Estate Riesling 2018
Save $5.00 (25%)
Pale gold in color, this wine greets you with aromas of waxy green apple, white peach and notes of lemon-lime citrus. It's crisp, fruity-yet-dry, light-to-medium- bodied with a tangy, mouth-watering, mineral accented finish. Nicely concentrated fruit, yet delicately nuanced with hints of blossom and spice. This wine works well as an aperitif, due to its off-dry finish and is also an excellent partner to most seafood dishes. Pairs exceptionally well with broiled trout served with sautéed string beans with almonds as it complements the earthy, nuttiness of the trout and almonds and the fresh tanginess of the beans. The touch of residual sweetness also helps it match up well with home-style barbeque or spicy fare, such as Hunan chicken or shrimp.
Juicy white grapefruit, lime and lemon are elevated by shades of earth and slate in this medium-dry Riesling. Pristine citrus flavors are sunny and bright, but maintain an earthen edge through a long finish. Drink now through 2023.
