Ostler Lakeside Vines Riesling 2016
Palest straw green in color; aromatically showing lemons, limes, white flowers and lovely underlying minerality, reminiscent of rain falling on hot river stones. The palate is full-bodied; classified ‘medium-dry’. Fresh flavor of citrus with well-balanced acid structure. Drinking well now.
Off-dry, this is a rich and concentrated wine that unfolds interwoven flavors of spicy yellow stone fruits, honey, flint and earth. Brilliant straw-yellow color with light hues of gold, pale on the rim.
This is seriously white wine royalty showing how cool climate Rieslings can morph into even greater beauty with 7 years bottle age. Terrific match for many foods, really!
