2015 Muska Riesling

$ 24.00 / Bottle

One of our favorite neighbors is farmer Carl Muska. Carl’s passion for viticulture is evident in his care and dedication to his east facing volcanic vineyard. This delicious Riesling is a medium dry style and focused stone fruit flavors evocative yellow nectarines and peaches. An amazing pairing with sushi and tempura veggies!

Lemon poppy seed cake, nectarine, macadamia nuts, orange blossoms and cut herbs on the nose. Very floral with the faint classic petrol notes.

The Muska has a nice bitterness like grapefruit segments, with lemon custard and ripe peaches. There is a beautiful floral notes as you exhale, perfume, rose petals and gardenias. I love the complexity in the finish with wet stone, herbs, bright fruit, and exhilarating acidity that leaves the mouth watering. The fruit is ripe and the wine is broad in the mouth and medium to full bodied. Big and powerful, yet with elegance and an ethereal lightness in the high notes.

I would pair this with tomato risotto, white mushrooms and asparagus spears. Would also be beautiful with roasted quail, Dungeness crab or Cod in lemon beurre blanc with meyer lemon. Go crazy!
