Winemaker's Notes

Fresh peach, pear, apricot flavors and a touch of residual sweetness are delicately balanced with crisp, refreshing acidity. Forward floral and spice aromas with notes of green apples, pears and apricots. Off dry and medium-bodied; ready for near-term enjoyment within one to three years of vintage date. Extremely versatile, this wine pairs exceptionally well with lightly sauced chicken, cracked crab, scampi, and scallops. It is a perfect partner for spicy Pacific-Rim cuisine. At the historic family winery in Silicon Valley, Mirassou Chef de Cuisine David Page pairs this delightful Riesling with his House-Smoked Duck Salad with Sundried Apricots, Spiced Almonds and Lemon-Honey Vinaigrette.
