Riesling for Mother’s Day!

American grown Riesling is gaining popularity but at Smith-Madrone, that is nothing new. They have been producing Estate Riesling since soon after they planted it on the steep slopes of Spring Mountain in 1971. Winemakers, Charlie Smith and Stuart Smith, let the fruit and the vintage do the talking and just make pure and classic Riesling. Their newest release, 2015, is tasting delicious out the gates but has some major potential to evolve over the next couple decades. Fresh zesty aromas and flavors of lemon peel, green apple, honey suckle, and crushed stone. It is clean and bright with a fabulous tingly minerality on the finish that feels like it is dancing throughout your palate to entice the senses. This is a wine that will reward patience but your patience will be tested. ~ #riesling #smithmadronewinery #springmountain #napa #whitewine #winemaker #cmkwine #winetime #vino #wein #vin #winelover #wine #instawine #terroir #cheers #winestagram
