Quick Note: Poet’s Leap Riesling, Columbia Valley: 2006

June 5, 2008

~$20US, 100% Riesling, Columbia Valley, WA

Floral nose with white peaches. Medium bodied palate with Korean plum-hard-candy flavors throughout. Focused acidity providing a lively counterpoint to the fruit ripeness. Developed secondary flavors like banana and ripe honeydew with airtime as it warmed to room temperature. Very balanced in a dry style with a slightly minerally finish. Clean and pure – One of the strongest new-world Rieslings I’ve had. Perfect with Chinese – especially with shellfish dishes.
