This is a sweet white blend, consisting of Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and a couple other grapes I can’t be certain of, some of which I think were grown on the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC (others sourced from the west coast). I reviewed the Biltmore Century Red blend last week and found it to be nice for Costco’s $8.99 price tag. This white follows suit so long as you know what you’re getting into (I grabbed it quickly off the shelf and wasn’t sure what to expect).
This wine is fresh out of the bottle, crisp flavors of peach, pear and grapefruit. Healthy dose of sweetness on the finish, although the blend mellows it out a tad; a nice wine for before or after dinner, or a hot summer day. Could be paired with the usual Reisling favorite dishes of something spicy or thai, or both.
