Wine Wednesday - Persimmon Creek - 2007 Riesling

The Persimmon Creek Vineyard is located on 110 acres in the Northeast Georgia Mountains. We haven't visited this vineyard yet but they did participate in the Winefest we went to back in the spring. It was there that we got to taste a sampling of Persimmon Creek's wine. All were very good but the Riesling really stood out for me.

The 2007 Riesling is light in color and crisp in taste. It's not an overtly sweet or overwhelming Riesling. It's well balanced and very floral. Great for a hot summer day on the back porch or paired with seafood. The grapes for this wine are all estate grown, which I love to hear, and are aged in stainless steal. For us the wine was best after it was first opened. After more than a day or two (even with a vacuum seal) it lost a lot.

I also need to mention that I love this bottle and label. The see-thur section to the butterfly is just brilliant, beautiful, and very appropriate for this wine.
