Chateau Montelena Riesling 2017

Riesling may be the greatest white wine in the world though you’ll only come to share my sentiment when you’ve tasted a few well-aged examples; certain of these wines, though by no means a rarity, can age beautifully for decades. The wines are usually made dry or off-dry. The bouquet often includes honeysuckle, white flowers, wet stones, rose petals and, don’t frown, petrol. In the mouth the oft and aptly used ‘racy’ best describes the delights of Riesling; flint, minerality, white pepper. These are among the best food wines in the world.

Food Pairings

As with all of Montelena's offerings, this is a food wine, and should pair quite nicely with seared scallops (among other things).
