Château Montelena Potter Valley Riesling 750ML
Château Montelena pale gold in color, this Riesling opens with floral aromas of honeysuckle and candied orange, layered with pear, spicy honey, and rich Charentais melon. The palate shows a nice smooth entry; full and round, but not heavy, with good crisp acidity. Flavors of lemon zest and tart mandarins lead the way and are followed by light stone fruits, honey, and poached pear - all rounded off with a warm, subtle, spicy finish. As with all of Montelena's offerings, this is a food wine, and should pair quite nicely with seared scallops (among other things).
