2018 Firestone Riesling, Santa Barbara
This Riesling has a delightfully bright combination of crisp Golden Delicious apples, lemon zest, and nectarine. The full round finish displays fragrant notes of citrus blossom, honeysuckle with jasmine tea and honey on the smooth finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with spicy foods for a delightful contrast.
The 2018 vintage began with an early bud break followed by an extremely mild spring and summer season, perfect conditions for longer hang time and more intense flavor development.
