2011 The White Knight Lake County Riesling, CA $3.99

Silverdale, WA    13.5% alc.    (Purchased on 10/22/13)

IMG_1291Vinted and bottled by The Other Guys, Napa, CA.  Brilliant pale golden with a sweet, tropical fruit and peach nose.  On the palate it’s quite sweet, almost cloying and in need of more acidity and shows flavors of more peach and the papaya mentioned on it’s back label.  There is little to none of the tart green apple I usually find in well-made Rieslings.  Slightly bitter on the finish, but at least it shows some pineapple flavors.  An auslese wannabe that never even gets close to the target.  To my taste in Riesling, the understated packaging is the best feature of this white.  I’d rather spend a buck or two more for one of the delicious German Rieslings still lingering in my local GO.

    This wine is delicious and reminds me of a wine from the Marlborough region that was 3x’s as much. It’s has such a wonderful flavor, I wish they made a bath products with the same scent : )
