There's a mix of lemongrass, apricot, yellow apple and dusty mineral aromas on the nose. The palate is juicy and ripe in the same fruit tones, with an addition of blossomy floral notes entering on the midpalate. Semidry in style and with a crisp apple-peel finish, this Riesling shows immediate appeal.
Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. He prefers to focus on wines from Virginia, Michigan, Texas and other smaller U.S. regions, as well as domestic and international cider.
