Viewpointe Estate Winery 2005 Riesling
(Re-Tasted May 20) ... Tonight it was time to pull out an 'old' Riesling; now truthfully 5 years isn't that old for a Riesling but when it's from a hot vintage like 2005, which seem to have the tendency to prematurely age, you figure your Riesling is going to be old tasting. But this is a really beauty at 5 years of age. The nose is lemon with a touch of petrol and Bartlett pear. The palate has apple and pear with a nice smooth sweetness through the mouth - very sippable and very enjoyable on this very summer-like day.
