It’s been a long week… I am nearing the home stretch of a big recruitment process to hire my next boss, but that has meant several long days. I’m ready for the weekend now!
To relax after my long day, I’m sipping on the 2012 Three Vineyard Riesling from Chehalem Winery. It has a crisp minerality that is balanced by sweetness, something that is unusual in Northwest Rieslings. There are flavors of tropical fruit – I picked up pineapple – with wet stone.
Even though it was raining and I was feeling the need to get bundled up against the cold, this crisp wine really hit the spot and reminded me that summer is on its way.
This wine contains 10% alcohol and 1.1% residual sugar, and is sourced from all three of Chehalem’s estate vineyards: Ridgecrest, Stoller and Corral Creek.
