Handley Cellars Anderson Valley Riesling 2014
One of our direct American imports, we’re very excited to have Handley Cellars in. Like many other quality vineyards they are a small family domaine, based in the Anderson valley in Mendocino. The climate here is cooler than the majority of California, so it is perfectly adapted to producing more elegant restrained wines rather than the blockbusters found in lower warmer areas. This is also reflected in the grapes they grow.
Pure and ripe Riesling nose—citrus, lime and a subtle hint of petrol. On the palate this is bursting with citrus fruit , but clean, dry and ultra fresh with a mineral edge and very balanced acidity. The finish is long and very appealing - this is a really well made wine that’s so expressive of the varietal and very drinkable. Yum!
ABV : 13,5%
