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