A Riesling review from Epikur Magazine. The Argyle Riesling is a fun bottle of wine with just enough juicy white fruit to balance out the racy elements. A bit of ozone and salinity come into play in the midpalate. The floral and mineral components are mostly in the long and pleasant. finish. .A very nice bottle of wine, especially for the summertime.

Argyle 2007 Riesling, Willamette

Upcoming Wine TastingsWine CoursesA Fun Sommelier Test

A roaring bottle of white wine.  To recreate the flavor without tasting it, here is what you should do:

Grab a rake and a Buddhist monk, take them both on a road trip to Death Valley. Once you are there, make the monk draw circles in the sand with the rake. At gunpoint, if necessary. Meditate on the vastness of the universe,  and then squeeze off a few rounds into the air.

After a few hours, call it a day. Stop off at a gas station and buy your monk a bouquet. Afterward, let him eat a plateful of the lushest peaches you can find.  Once you and your monk have completed all these chores, sniff his robes.  If he protests, remember you still have the gun. Sniff again: that is the essence of the Argyle Riesling.

Of course, you could also try a glass. It’s a fun bottle of wine with just enough juicy white fruit to balance out the racy elements. A bit of ozone and salinity come into play in the midpalate.  The floral and mineral components are mostly long and pleasant. finish. .A very nice bottle of wine, especially for the summertime.

About Riesling 

The classic German grape produces a zesty, citrusy, intensely flavored wine of great mineral complexity, length, and longevity. When grown on certain soils, the terpenes in Riesling benefit from bottle-age and can, after several years, develop a bouquet reminiscent of gasoline. Alsace and Austriamake most (not all) of the best Riesling. In Australia, the wine from this grape has, by and large, a simplistic lime fruit character that is prone to going like gasoline in a relatively short while but lacks the finesse and complexity of truly classic petrol aromas.
