Riesling – Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard

Our wine tonight is the Riesling from Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard just outside of Shelby, North Carolina.

American Riesling

Non-Vintage. Estate grown Riesling. Vineyard is planted on a 100+ year old former dairy farm.

Light straw in color, hue of goldenrod.

Complex nose expressing aromas of apricot, pear, banana, honey, petrol, jasmine, lemon, and pineapple.

Semi-dry on the palate with bold fruit flavors, nectarine, apricot, mango, apple cider, lemon-lime, and pear, with finishing notes of cream cheese, diesel, wildflower honey, ginger, and beeswax.

11% ABV

Available only at the winery or select local retailers.

A really good example of a Southern American Riesling.
