2013 Palmaz Vineyards Riesling "Louise"

Riesling’s exotic range of aromas and acidity make it a darling of sommeliers and winemakers. In this vintage, the scents are a fresh burst of elderflower and white nectarine, with just a whiff of petrol to tickle your mind. This Riesling glides over the tongue like a close shave, leaving the palate refreshed. Balanced and lean, this vintage has enough bracing acidity to pair gloriously with choucroute or paté (as with the traditional pairing of this varietal in Alsace).
