Let's get down to brass tacks. This Riesling is about the purity of the varietal flavors and California terroir. Brass Tacks Riesling offers crisp clean notes of fresh peach, honey and apricot with mineral qualities and bright acidity with a brisk, dry finish. This Riesling is sourced from Monterey County, where the cooling influence from the Pacific Ocean and Monterey Bay leads to one of the longest growing seasons in California. The cool climate allows for a longer hang time that leads to full, concentrated flavors and ideal acidity.
Food Pairings: Refreshing and food-friendly, Brass Tacks Riesling pairs well with seafood, salads, spicy and Asian foods.
"This would be a wonderful wine even if it cost a little more. As it is, it's a steal. Shows refined apricot, peach, lychee, mineral and floral flavors, finished with brisk, mouthwatering acidity, and an absolutely dry finish. One of the best Riesling values available in Cailfornia, and a tremendous cocktail wine. Just 600 cases were produced. Editor's Choice"
