A weekend wine review of Crew Wine – Crew Riesling 2016.
Crew Wine Crew Riesling 2016
Crew Wine, Crew Riesling 2016. North Coast, California. Wine Awesomeness. 100% Riesling.
They say: Crew Wine was cerated just a few years ago by Chris Borges and Ian McCaffrey while still in school at UC Davis. They run every aspect of the company from the marketing of the wine all the way down to the delivery. Riesling is a controversial wine. Not all Rieslings are a classier Moscato alternative. This wine tastes like a fruit-forward sunset of flavors: mandarin orange dripping with tangy citrus drifting into piles of lychee floating on a frothy green pear ocean. On the nose: airy white flowers drizzled in raw honey. A slight whiff of petrol and brine lingers towards the end. It has a medium body, round and soft, smooth through the back of the palate and sweetly stings the back of your cheeks with razor-like acidity.
We say: It’s crisp and tart, with green apple flavors. Smooth and silky with floral notes. Really enjoyed it!
