2008 Palmaz Vineyards Riesling "Louise"

The gentle weather of 2008 yielded a floral, ripe Riesling with fragrant aromas of honeysuckle and white nectarine, along with the cooling flavor of candied lemon peel. The fermentation was naturally stopped at 0.88 percent residual sugar, to promote a lush and silky finish with no perceptible sweetness. The texture is light and the aromas are uplifting, making this vintage a great pairing with Caribbean flavors such as jerk chicken with jicama slaw, or grilled seafood.
