2016 Smith-Madrone Estate Riesling
2016 Spring Mountain District Riesling: Aromatically, the 2016 Riesling has strong floral notes with an admixture of lime, stone fruits and minerality. These qualities translate seamlessly into a succulent mid-palate replete with corresponding flavors. Very Alsatian in style, the creamy center suggests a kind of delicate forcefulness that finishes with a bright, lively, juicy-fruit acidity.
Altogether delicious and stylish, the Riesling would be great ice-cold on a hot summer day or make a superb accompaniment to a wide variety of food either spicy or savory.
This season we are also offering a rare magnum release (1.5L) of the 2016 Riesling.
