Mirassou 2008 California Riesling

Top 10 Barbecue Wines 2010

Mirassou Winery 2008 California Riesling, on our list of the Top 10 Barbecue Wines


Mirassou 2008 California Riesling

The 2008 Mirassou Riesling was blended with a small amount of Gewürztraminer, giving the wine floral notes on the nose. Crisp fruit aromas are also displayed in this soft and approachable white wine that offers flavors of peach and apple. Naturally firm acid levels make this wine crisp and delicately structured, perfect for pairing with richly sauced poultry or seafood. Its inherent sweetness also makes it a great match for most desserts.

Rating: 13/20
