Pacific Rim 2021 Dry Riesling
Wine of the Week
July 28, 2022
Pacific Rim makes a wide range of affordable Rieslings in a variety of sweetness levels. The Dry Riesling featured here is richly fruity with a luscious blend of peach, apricot, and papaya fruit. Though it is accurately labeled as dry the ripeness of the fruit provides a slight impression of sweetness, which rounds out the palate and cuts through the tart acidity. The flavors extend into a pleasing finish with a mix of orange blossoms, Meyer lemon, pink grapefruit, and a cascade of ripe tropical fruits. It’s hard to imagine a more pleasing hot weather white wine than this. Chill it down, mix it with some spritzer, and enjoy!
