Chateau Montelena Riesling Potter Valley 2016

Chateau Montelena's rich history began in 1882 with the purchase of 284 acres at the base of Mount Saint Helena (two miles north of Calistoga), by San Francisco entrepreneur, Alfred Tubbs. By 1896 his winery, christened Chateau Montelena (a contracted form of Mount Saint Helena), was the seventh largest in the Napa Valley.
Many years later the renaissance of Chateau Montelena Winery began with the leadership of Jim Barrett. Jim made his first wines in 1972 and decades later, this celebrated family-owned winery continues to thrive with Jim Barrett and his son Bo Barrett.
Pale gold in color, this Riesling opens with floral aromas of honeysuckle and candied orange, layered with pear, spicy honey, and rich Charentais melon. The palate shows a nice smooth entry; full and round, but not heavy, with good crisp acidity. Flavors of lemon zest and tart mandarins lead the way and are followed by light stone fruits, honey, and poached pear - all rounded off with a warm, subtle, spicy finish.
