2017 Carretto Dolce Riesling
This Riesling is reminiscent of the classic Germanic style that has lower alcohol and higher residual sugar. Highly aromatic, the nose overflows with citrus, particularly grapefruit, lemon drop and orange peel. Hints of bosc pear and red delicious apple follow along with wet stone and a candied quality. The palate is soft with good structure and an excellent display of balance between sugars and acids. White flesh peach, candied lemon, chamomile, honey and melon flow on the palate and shine through the wines soft texture.
Consider pairing this with spicier foods like Thai green curry or Madras chicken as the sweetness pairs well with spicier food.
