2015 Orchard Fold Riesling


Chris Blanchard, MS

Very bright floral nose, with lemon and lime blossom, mango, papaya and tropical notes. Fresh basil and thyme high notes.

Delicious ripe fruit, baked apple and pear, white peach, lemon pie, key lime, kaffir lime, blood orange and a whole basket of citrus. The wine is medium bodied, ripe but not quite sweet and highly aromatic of floral notes and herbs. Definitely getting the fresh cut basil, thyme and parsley and the wine finishes with gobs of fruit and beautiful, refreshing medium plus acid.

I really love this wine and how in balance it shows. This would be an amazing started with a fresh citrus segment salad with feta cheese. Try it with Heirloom tomatoes and burrata or halibut, avocado and squash blossoms stuffed with goat cheese. Yum.
