The light yellow 2021 A to Z Wineworks Oregon Riesling has a hint of lime green as it shines in the glass. Both floral and fruity aromatics abound – honeysuckle, hibiscus, apple-blossom and other white flowers, apricot, white peach, lime zest, lychee, gooseberry and mandarin orange precede rose tea, lemon verbena, even lime cordial notes. The wine is lively and buoyant on the palate leading with tangy acidity followed by a slight honey sweetness and juicy flavors. There are hints of grapefruit, apple, lime juice and honeydew melon flavors as well as candied ginger, spearmint, event orange Triple Sec. The structure is round and balanced with just a touch of residual sugar lending a nice weight to the mouthfeel before a long, refreshing finish. The 2021 A to Z Wineworks Oregon Riesling is a true delight!
