2012 Whispering Tree Columbia Valley Riesling, WA $4.99

Silverdale, WA    11.5% alc.    (Purchased on 11/6/14)

IMG_1848Clear pale straw with lots of tiny bubbles clinging to the bottom and sides of the glass; plenty of typical green apple and citrus in the nose.  In the mouth, it’s sweeter than I recall of the 2008 vintage of this wine and seems a bit softer in feel.  But the sugar to acid balance is really quite nice and while the slight spritz is also there in the mouth, I believe there’s no danger of secondary fermentation or related problems.  Flavors are more Granny Smith apple and lemon/lime zest.  It’s a pleasant enough quaffer with decent Riesling character and should do well on its own, with mild soft cheeses, fruit, or with spicy Asian chicken or seafood-based cuisine.

    Three days later…and sitting on the counter with just the screw top on…this wine is tasting just as fresh as it did when opened on Monday afternoon.
