Pine & Post Winery NV Riesling, Washington, $8

By on February 27, 2013

Pine & Post RieslingBest Buy! It’s not unusual for this bargain brand to release non-vintage wines, and this Riesling doesn’t carry much residual sugar (2%). The nose hints at Asian pear, baked apple dumpling, bubble gum and candy corn. On the attack, there’s more candy corn up front, a sign of the Chenin Blanc (15%), then the acidity really picks up. Flavors of lemon/lime, apricot pit and minerality are capped with a drop of petrol in the finish.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 1,900 cases

Alcohol: 13%
