Luxist Tastes: 2005 Eroica Riesling
The resulting wine is straw-colored with a citrus and white flower nose, crisp and richly aromatic. The wine is deeply satisying, it has a great mix of pear and mineral flavors and a lipsmacking finish. It's drier than some Rieslings but has just a smidge of honeyed sweetness that makes Riesling so appealing. The fact that it is a bit sharp makes it very food friendly (and for more thanThai food which is the recommendation of the winemaker). It earned 90 points from Wine Spectator and sells for around $20.
