2008 Mountainview Riesling VQA

 

An interesting fact of Riesling is that it is one of the best wines to age.  The question of how long to age the wine depends on the desired style.  When Riesling is young, it is fresh and fruity often with notes of citrus fruit and racy acidity.  Over time those characteristics can turn into a more complex combination of lemon zest, slate, rubber and even petrol.  One style is not superior; it is simply personal preference.

This perfectly aged Riesling has had the advantage of being harvested in a cool year, which left the wine with excellent acidity.  It is this acidity that has allowed the wine to age so gracefully.  On the nose are mineral characters as well as wet stone, lime zest, white grapefruit, honey and a hint of petrol.  The palate is fresh with a nice weight and texture to allow for excellent food pairing opportunities.  The finish is quite dry with cleansing acidity in the background.

Pair this Riesling with poultry, delicate fish, Asian inspired cuisine, light cream sauces or even mild curry.
