Wine: Fetzer Riesling (white)

fetzer

At Fetzer, we’ve been committed to environmental responsibility for over a quarter century. Because we believe sustainable practices not only make for a healthier planet – they make for better wines.

Riesling comes in many styles, and its popular enough that some call it the new Chardonnay. We just call it good. Our personal style blends fruit from cooler areas of California to create a wine both rich and floral, pale yellow in color with aromas of pear and apricot. In the glass, you’ll taste peaches and apricots, a gracious invitation to sit a spell and enjoy with friends.

Our Riesling is delicate, yet full of fruit forward flavors and aromas. There are aromas of dried fruit, lemon, lavender, jasmine and rose petal. In the mouth, the crisp acidity balances this well structured wine with flavors of peaches, pineapple and pear that lead to a smooth rich, mellow finish.

Another week, another stab at picking a tasty white wine.

I grabbed this bottle of Fetzer Riesling simply due to it’s label: I love sustainable items made in the U.S. And it’s a Riesling – I love a good Riesling. 🙂

The Fetzer was good – not great but good. It has a very nice fruity/flowery smell and I could taste apples and peaches. The Fetzer Riesling was sweet with a slight tartness when it first hits your tongue.

Sadly, the Fetzer was a little too sweet for me and hubby I paired it with a mild fish taco platter and the pairing worked ok. It didn’t quite have the flavor I wanted for sipping but I still enjoyed it. I did enjoy the Fetzer but not really enough to repurchase (except for the sustainability thing).
