Mercer Canyons Riesling 2011

This is a superb and affordable Riesling using grapes from Brooks Vineyard. From a cool vintage, this was picked late in the season yet still managed to maintain bright acidity. It opens with aromas of fresh-squeezed lemon, yellow grapefruit, slate, pear and Golden Delicious apple. It’s beautiful on the entry, with crisp acidity rounded on the corners with just under 2% residual sugar. Flavors of lemon, lime, peach and apricot lead to a stunning finish. [+]
