Spies in the House

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from Spy Valley Winery

Spy Valley makes some excellent QPR wines. I’ve been really pleased with everything I’ve tried so far from the line. I’m looking forward to tasting the Gewurztraminer and Pinot Noir that I still have left.  I’m not sure if the Riesling is available in the US as I don’t see it for sale online.  The 2008 Spy Valley Riesling clocks in at 12% alcohol by volume, has a screw cap closure, and looks to retail for around $20.

On the nose i found lemon, spice, white pepper, white flowers, wet stone, and peach.  In the mouth I found peach, pear, lemon, orange, honey tones, stones, and lime on the finish.  The wine was crisp and a really nice effort.  I enjoyed it with grilled chicken marinated in Italian spices, probably not the best match, but it worked.
