This is from Food and Gift purveyor Harry & David and made in Southern Oregon. This is a very interesting and different take on Riesling. Light yellow/white/gold in color with a bit of a green tinge to it. The nose has a fresh cantaloupe quality to it which is very interesting. On the palate, this has a bit of a tingling acidity. The cantaloupe /melon quality comes thru. A very nice slightly oily texture gives it a viscous body. This took a few minutes to open then drank quite well. It is an off dry wine with sweetness showing especially on the finish. Overall, a very fun wine if a bit atypical for Riesling. It will work great on its own or with lighter summer foods. These are sold thru the Harry & David stores and website as part of gift packages but seem to start around $20 per bottle.
