Riesling – Point Lookout Vineyards


Our wine tonight is the Riesling from Point Lookout Vineyards in Hendersonville, North Carolina. Vintage 2016.

Riesling from North Carolina.

Light golden color.

Nose exhibiting soft minerality, pink grapefruit, lemon, and freshly sliced golden delicious apples.

Off dry on the palate.

Crisp with medium acidity.

Flavor notes of lemon meringue pie, Bosc pears, green vegetables, Granny Smith apples, and soft herbs with a lingering minerality.

11% ABV.

The vineyards sit high atop the Southeast slope of Point Lookout Mountain in North Carolina’s Crest of the Blue Ridge Henderson County AVA.
