2013 Corral Creek Riesling
Oh, Corral Creek; where the Riesling is always bright and clean, even if the critics don’t understand the vintage! This is one of CHEHALEM’s many argument for good wines from good producers in every single vintage. I guess it’s not your thing, if you don’t like pineapple and gladiolas, or lemon pie, cotton candy, and sunshine, or if you have an adverse reaction to richness, balanced acid, and a twinge of residual sugar singing sweetly, all at the same time. But, then again, who wouldn’t want to taste a fresh apple married to a melon, smell some jasmine and honeysuckle, and have their palate caressed with silky, golden, mouthwatering, flinty nectar? Nobody, that’s who.
