2015 Heart & Hands Sparkling Riesling

2015 Heart & Hands Sparkling Riesling

I’ve been a member of Heart & Hands’ Claddagh Club, its wine club, for several years and enjoy that, once in a while, I’m contacted about something totally unexpected by this stellar Finger Lakes winery. This time, it was about its sparkling Riesling with bottle cap enclosure – how could I pass that up? The one thing I regret is only buying a half case.

Looks: Palest of yellow in the glass with tiny bubbles.

Smell: Apple and pear aromas with hints of citrus.

Taste: Green apple and tropical fruit flavors with a dry, bright, crisp finish.

This bubbly is great as an aperitif but it’s also very food friendly.

Pairings: Fried chicken, grilled fish, seafood.
