By on March 27, 2016

schmidt-family-vineyards-riesling-2014-labelThis three-generation winemaking team in Southern Oregon’s Applegate Valley draws its Riesling from Jacksonville and presents this is in a relatively dry style, leaving just 1.2% residual sugar. There’s a light bit of toast and diesel to the nose, backed by plenty of citrus aromas and flavors of lemon, lime and orange – capped by a finish of Italian lime soda. It screams out for Asian fare and the family shares its recipe for Thai Red Curry Squash Soup.
