Rustic Roots Riesling

2021 Riesling


American Off-Dry White
Double Gold, 2020 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
Silver, 2021 Finger Lakes Wine Competition

Sourced from grapes grown in Washington State, we had originally intended to blend this Riesling into the Roots White, but we were delighted at the quality of the wine and decided to bottle it on its own. The pretty and perfumed wine is off dry; the touch of sweetness is nicely balanced with zippy acidity. Flavors and aromas of grapefruit, lime, golden apple and white peach with an underlying minerality are nicely complemented by hints of camphor, anise and a light honeysuckle note. This Riesling is surprisingly complex and layered despite its delicate nature. A delicious wine to enjoy on its own, one could also enjoy it with spicier curries and southeast Asian cuisines such as Thai, Vietnamese or Malaysian dishes.
