Cardinal Point Quattro 2010

Producer: Cardinal Point Price: $17 Vintage: 2010 Winemaker Notes: Grape varieties: Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, Viognier, and Traminette. Tasting Notes: Apple and pear and peach notes with a refreshing finish. Technical Notes: No malolactic fermentation. 3% residual sugar. Food Pairing: Blue cheese on crusty bread, liver pate, or thai food. Winemaker: Tim Gorman Virginia Pour House Notes: Aroma: wafting notes of apple and bright fruit Flavors: crisp apple, pear, and a hint of apricot Finish: crisp with a semi-sweet lingering flavor Additional Notes: Not too sweet, well-balanced, almost effervescent mouth feel that would complement those hot summer days. I’m not a huge fan of sweet Rieslings, and if you are looking for something similar minus the over the top sweetness, this should be just the trick.  Perfect for cooking on the grill yet refreshing to stash in the cooler to sip on the beach. Highly recommended from this Charlottesville area winery.   …
