2004 Palmaz Vineyards Riesling

Fruit for this vintage came from the old-vine Riesling vineyard of Long Vineyards in Pritchard Hill. This mature, low-yielding vineyard contributed to the heady honeycomb aromas sought after by Riesling connoisseurs. There are also the aromas of sun-kissed apricots and Meyer lemon curd, both an inviting welcome to the lengthy and precise finish. This highly aromatic vintage pairs with triple-crème cheeses such as La Tur or elaborate hors d’oeuvres (think smoked-trout mouse with caviar).
