Tasting Notes

While widely known for crafting classic Napa Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet, Chateau Montelena also crafts this crisp Riesling from remote Potter Valley in Mendocino County. It's typically off-dry in style, like Kabinett, but certainly isn't "sweet." Notes from winemaker Matt Crafton: "Ripe apple and pear along with a touch of ginger initially dominate the subtle tropical and floral aromas that characterize this Riesling. With some patience, however, the bouquet transitions to rose petals, fresh peach, and pineapple, all of which should be familiar to those who’ve enjoyed this wine in the past. Viscous and rich with hints of honey, lemon bar, and mango, the palate embodies what we consider to be the best expression of Riesling in a ripe vintage. The texture is creamy but not cloying as the latent acid provides the necessary balance and finesse. More stone fruit along with cinnamon and some vanilla break through on the finish as does a subtle mineral undertone, the depth and breadth of which should only increase with time in bottle."
