Troon Whole Grape Fermented Riesling 2016 93 Points – James Melendez

Full name: Troon Whole Grape Fermented Applegate Valley Riesling

A delightful orange wine and I love it is Riesling as an orange wine versus Pinot Gris.  A wine that is fully appreciable, fun and a very reasonable price point – $20 from producer.  It is a great wine to pair with seafood, Asian cuisine and to also enjoy on it’s own.

Scent: Dried fig, green apple, cinnamon, nutmeg, carnation, moist stones

Palate: Dried fruit, ground nutmeg, pepper, hint of flowers, oyster shell, and flowers

About James Melendez

I have two blogs on this descriptor page--I use to be able to make separate. My fragrance blog is to express my thoughts on fragrance. A passion in addition to wine. I think it is a stellar component to the senses and that which I am in love with. I hope you like both blogs. My "wine" blog also incorporates those categories intimately involved - wine, food, travel and lifestyle. We all need food and water to survive but we need wine to nourish our soul. My favourite varietals are Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo, Grenache, Syrah-Shiraz.. for my red wines. And I often circle back to these varieties and sometimes they are my home varieties. The journey of wine is an historical footnote also marked by viti-viniculture and artistry that makes this beverage a living one. I have worked professionally in the wine trade and have loved all aspects; marketing, history, science and art of wine. © 2014 James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy— All Rights Reserved – for my original Content, logo, brand name, rating, rating graphic and award and designs of James the Wine Guy.
