Efeste Evergreen Riesling, Washington, USA 2013

Washington, USA

International Wine Challenge 2016 Bronze

Tasting Notes

Riesling is a truly noble varietal, capable of producing mouth-watering, bone dry whites to ultra-luscious sweet wines. This example combines old world finesse with American ripeness and is not as bone dry as some new world styles.

This Riesling is remarkably well balanced, opening up with white peach, honeysuckle and mineral notes. On the palate a hint of sweetness is balanced by fresh acidity, finishing with a lovely flavours of granny smith apple, mandarin and orange
