It's AMAZING! I'm not much of a wine drinker and my wife is rather picky with her wine, but we both loved it. Not the typical dryness at the end and very fruity.
I grew-up in Southern California 20 miles east of Los Angeles in Covina, a town famous for its orange groves and a variety of other fruit trees. In the summer, I enjoyed plucking fruit directly from the branches early before sugars matured and to enjoy the tart taste. Later in life, while living and working in Germany, I found that same dry fruity taste I remembered as a child in the Dry Riesling wines produced along the Rhine River. This became my wine of choice. I made it a hobby to collect and sample as many varieties of what the Germans refer to as ‘Riesling Trocken’ as I could find. ‘Trocken’ is the High German word for ‘dry’ and is commonly used in wine production. After returning stateside, I searched wine outlets looking for Dry Rieslings and found them tough to locate. Often, I would have to place a special order. You can imagine my delight when a friend brought me a case of Dry Riesling from Idaho. Until that day I was unaware that Idaho had the perfect climate and soil to grow quality vines for wine production. I uncorked a bottle and was immediately transported back to the Riesling wineries of Germany. The wine has a strong fruity note of peaches and reminded me of the tart taste of peach picked early just days before naturally sweetening. The Riesling was smooth and reminiscent of the higher quality German wines. I am pleased to be a customer of and fully endorse the Dry Riesling now produced at Spiral Rock Vineyard.
