Although often considered a warm weather varietal (i.e. one that is drunk during warm weather), I enjoyed a bottle of this dry Riesling in January.
Notes: I liked this wine by Fetzer. At 11.5% alcohol, this is truly a dry Riesling. Yet the wine still had a sweetness to it on the palate – as this varietal should. The flavors for me were abundant fruit flavors of peach (especially at the fore) and lime, a hint of apple, and a lively finish that reminded me of lime zest. I can see this wine being enjoyed as a nice little sipper on a sunny afternoon. Or it could easily be paired with a nice fish or lightly spicy chicken dish.
