Chardonnay & Riesling

INTRODUCING Johannisberg Riesling 2008 lot # 0802
$32 bottle
Our hidden gem; this wine has been slowly aging in our cellar since 2008. With patience and time, this Riesling has aged gracefully through the years.
On the palate, it displays crisp acid with notes of lime peel, apricots and nectarines. Petrol (TDN) and citrus blossoms are beautifully displayed in the aroma.
The 2008 Riesling is an easy drinking wine that pairs well with curry dishes and/or chicken, pork, shrimp and crab.
INTRODUCING Covered Bridge 2017 lot # 1793
$10 bottle 
On the nose, this wine is reminiscent of campfire smokiness, toasted marshmallows and baked apple pie.
Aged in all new American oak for two years, the Covered Bridge wine has forward notes of vanilla and cream.
The fresh yet subtle acidity would pair great with poultry or ham dishes.
