2011 Greenlane Riesling

This is another one from the stunning Paradiso Burlington winemakers dinner. Pale in color with a nice crisp nose. On the mid pallet the wine is a nice dry riesling. Nice and crisp. Some traditional honeysuckle as well as some green apple notes. The wine is on the medium in length on the finish. This is a very food friendly riesling. I would give it an 88-89. Quite nice, especially for the price $15.95. I like my rielsings dry and crisp, just like this one. they paired it with Confit Chicken Thigh with Aged Goat cheese and Duck Fat Fried Gnocchi which was delicous and paired really well. I never would have thought of putting the goat cheese on the chicken thigh but it really did work!

From the winery’s web site: Tasting Notes
Sourced from our younger block of Riesling, this wine displays delicate notes of citrus and green apple well balanced by crisp acidity.

Tasting Note
Lime cordial, apple, pear and peach aromas are all confidently on display, supported by a commanding beach-sand minerality. This no wilting flower, this exudes self assurance. Juicy, sweet-and-tangy lime shows the way for this complex, crisp Riesling. Very satisfying length to the mouth-watering finish. Perfect for fresh water fish, or grilled prawns with garlic.
