The Swinney Riesling is a captivating wine with a striking pale straw hue and inviting green accents. Its aroma is a symphony of refreshing Meyer lemon, delicate honeysuckle, alluring beeswax, and intriguing oyster shell notes. The palate is greeted by a medium body and lively citrus fruits of pomelo and lime, joined by a touch of lychee and green papaya. This vibrant ensemble is complemented by a backbone of slatey acidity and a lingering, briny dry finish. This exceptional Riesling exhibits remarkable balance and structure, making it a true gem among cool-climate Rieslings.
Pair with asparagus salad, crab cakes, seared scallops, grilled salmon, and fennel sausage pasta.
