With great balance, Riesling sets itself as a true matriarch of wines throughout the world. Riesling gives wine lovers the finest example of the important complementary role that sugar and acid play in a wine’s overall balance. Indeed, a great Riesling is exactly that, a stunningly graceful contrast between the two. Rounding out the package are the signature floral and fruit characteristics that combine perfectly with the grape’s natural sugar-acid balance.
Unfortunately, this “Great Lady” of grapes did not like the soil conditions at Maize Valley, so it is sourced in Erie, PA. Maize Valley Riesling is a crisp, semi-sweet white wine with floral aromas and flavors of apricot and pear. Less sweet than many late harvest Rieslings.
