Best Buy! While it comes from the same house with roots in the Horse Heaven Hills and White Bluffs, it would be misnomer to view this bottling as declassified Poet’s Leap. Gilles Nicault and his team approach this Riesling project as a bit less dry, and it’s charming from the opening of tropical aromas, lovely dustiness and white peach. There’s jasmine, lavender and melon on the palate that’s delicous with a touch of sweetness (1.2% residual sugar) that’s tightened up by a twist of lemon peel. Suggested pairings include sushi, fried chicken and spicy Thai fare.
