Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Loredona Riesling offers delicate aromas of lychee, asian pear, citrus blossom, and a touch of honey. On the palate, complex layers of ripe apricot mingle with lemon-lime, structured by a light minerality. The wine shows nice, refreshing acidity, finishing with a pleasant tartness that lingers on the palate.

Loredona Riesling is a great match with Asian dishes, seafood chowders and bisques and fresh fruit such as apples, peaches and pears.

My Notes:

About Loredona:

Whether hailing from Old World Italy or New World California, the one common theme in every world-class wine is its "sense of place." The French term this reflection of locale "terroir", literally "ground or soil." Simply put, it means that the wine's character speaks directly to the place it was grown.

Loredona wines are true to this ideal. Crafted from our vineyards located in the best growing regions throughout California, they are a true reflection of the land on which they are grown. Our Riesling and Pinot Grigio embody the sun, wind, fog, and soils of Monterey's San Bernabe Vineyard, and our Viognier captures the warmth and cooling breezes of our Lodi Clay Station Vineyard.
