Coiled Wines 2013 Dry Riesling, Snake River Valley, $17

By on October 8, 2014

coiled-wines-dry-riesling-bottleOwner/winemaker Leslie Preston learned her trade in Napa Valley’s Stags Leap District, then came home to Idaho to launch her brand. Her 2012 Dry Riesling earned best-of-show honors last year at the Idaho Wine Competition, and this latest vintage of that wine nearly repeated the feat, winning best white wine. It’s a gorgeous wine with aromas of Honeycrisp apple, lemon zest and spice, followed by bright, crisp, focused flavors of apple, lychee and Asian pear. It is a weighty and distinctively dry wine (0.35% residual sugar) with complexity and concentration. Her success and international acclaim with the 2012 vintage prompted her to increase production of this bottling from Skyline Vineyard by nearly 50 percent.
