2012 Seaglass Riesling

Every once in a while, a casual stroll on the beach yields an unexpected treasure an unbroken shell, an unusually shaped stone, a piece of sea glass. Occasionally, the same thing happens with wine. Riesling grapes thrive in cooler climates that allow the grapes to ripen slowly and steadily, producing wines that range from bone dry to delectably sweet. Riesling’s high acidity is lusciously balanced by its fragrant floral aromas and sweet fruit flavors. SeaGlass Riesling is a perfect expression of Monterey County, with its cool ocean air, minimal rainfall and long growing season. Enjoy this distinctive Riesling as an aperitif or pair with spicy ribs or fresh lobster.

From the Wine Maker – “Our reductive winemaking style maintains the delicate varietal flavors of peach and pear with honey on the nose. SeaGlass Riesling is fermented in stainless steel tanks at cold temperatures to retain the grape’s natural flavors. The wine is bottled early and sealed with a Stelcap closure to preserve the wine’s freshness.”

This versatile wine is exquisite on its own or can be paired with spicy Asian-inspired dishes or a rich fruit dessert.

2011 Be Riesling

be-rieslingRiesling is a white grape variety which originated in the Rhine region of Germany. Riesling is an aromatic grape variety displaying flowery, almost perfumed, aromas as well as high acidity. It is used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet and sparkling white wines. Riesling wines are usually varietally pure and are seldom oaked. As of 2004, Riesling was estimated to be the world’s 20th most grown variety, an increasing trend, but in terms of importance for quality wines, it is usually included in the “top three” white wine varieties together with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

From the Wine Maker – “The tempo is set for excitement with tantalizing fruit that boasts a marvelously magnetic appeal. Once your palate is captured by this zest for life, it is complemented by bright floral notes and whispers of sweetness that linger like that perfect evening that still floods your daydreams with sly smiles.”

This wine is best served with a vast array of foods, but the wine pairs best with spiced foods like cajun barbecued shrimp, gumbo or pan-blackened fish, chicken with mole, salsa and tortilla soup.

Excellent value, this Idaho Riesling starts freshly sweet, with flavors of crisp green apple and pear, finishing with a clean, lively acidity that leaves you wanting more.

This wine pairs nicely with cajun barbecued shrimp, gumbo or pan-blackened fish, chicken with mole, salsa and tortilla soup. Cheeses like gorgonzola, blue cheeses, cottage, cream cheese, parmesan, reggiano, mild cheddar, fontina, gouda, jarlsberg, swiss, brie, and other soft rind cheeses.

2008 Yalumba Y Series Riesling

The Riesling depicts the olive tree. It is said, where grapes thrive and prosper so too do the olive trees. When you consider the grape growing regions of South Australia, it is very true. Gentle processing of the grapes, and the use of only the clearest juice, followed by a cool even fermentation, ensures that the fresh flavours of the variety are preserved in the final wine.

From the Wine Maker – “Pale green hues, this wine has a spice and aromatic profile showing feijoa, lemongrass, rose petals and tropical fruit. Long, fine and refreshing, the Yalumba Y Series Riesling shows grapefruit flavours with balanced mineral acidity and fruit sweetness. This leads to a long lingering flavour and persistence on the palate.”

Enjoy with lightly herbed chicken or fish.
