Feeling festive and ready for my trip up north, I decided to pull the cork on a dessert wine received from Chaddsford Winery. I’ve raved about the winery and owner/winemaker Eric Miller in earlier posts (see here and here). Tonight’s pour, a late harvest style Riesling produced from Lake Erie region grapes, was no different.
Sold in the 375 ml format, the wine retails for $18.99 (disclaimer, the website only lists the ’06 so price could vary). Coming in at 10.5% alcohol and 9.7% residual sugar, the Riesling displayed a seductive nose of peach, apple, and pear. After the first glass, we threw around words such as intoxicating, seductive, and perfect. I think you get the picture.
Once again, I’m at the bottom of a Chaddsford wine wishing for another pour. I’m thinking I may need to make my way up to southeastern Pennsylvania sooner rather than later. Happy holidays!
