Firestone Late Harvest Select Riesling (half-bottle) 1998

Dessert from Central Coast, California

Item No. 13199

Winemaker's Notes

The 1998 Riesling has plenty of the classic varietal character one expects from the varietal in a long, cool growing season. Its full of peach, apricot and pineapple fruit aromas, with nuances of lemon, green apple and lime. Theres the added complex aroma of honey from the botrytis on the grapes at harvest. The flavors confirm the fruit aromas with apricot and honey dominating in a crisp, clean finish. Perfectly refreshing with Thai dishes and mild fish, like sole or trout.
