This is one of those “mystery” bottles. Neither my wife nor I remember buying it, yet there it sits in my wine cooler. I was cooking some pork loins in my Traeger and needed some moisture for the final drive to Nirvana. I typically use either Apple juice or beer. But I had no apple juice and I wasn’t about to sacrifice a Believer . . . so then it came down to the white wine cooler. Who would be “sacrificed” for dinner . . .
What a pleasant surprise. I am not typically a Riesling fan, though on a hot summer day, I do opt for something light and fruity. This little thing does not disappoint.
The aroma is one of ripe peaches, a bit of citrus, perhaps grapefruit or lemon zest, but with a definitive sweet nature. It is sweet and tart on the palate, mouth-watering. The stone fruit carries over to the flavor as well as the lemon zest/ grapefruit. A really nice surprise. My pork is getting a very nice blanket of goodness for its finish.
