2007 Milbrandt Vineyards "Traditions" Riesling

It's never the wrong time of year to drink crisp white wines! I usually consume quite a bit more of them during the summer time, seeing that I'm located in the hot Arizona desert. However, I love this style of wine in the afternoon with light salads or soft cheeses. Riesling's from Washington's Columbia Valley often have a great crispness to them and can in many ways be compared to some of Germany's Kabinett-style wines.

On the nose I get freshly sliced golden apple aromas that combine with peach, orange blossom, and slight hints of mineral and petrol.

On the palate the wine has a very round and luscious texture, and flavors of orange marmalade, apricot, and citrus peel are the focus of the tasting profile. This is a very simple offering that has a touch of sweetness and finishes with medium to short length. A perfect light-lunch type wine that would go well with a salad and ham sandwich! 86 points
