Friday Night Wine: Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling

Since last month’s wine choice was a red wine (which is my favorite, if anyone ever asks you that trivia question), this past Friday, I chose a white wine.  I decided to step outside of my usual white wine box and go with a Riesling, since it is not one that I usually would pick up when I am choosing a white for the evening.  So, last week’s choice was Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling (2014).

Whenever I’m drinking white wine, I prefer it to be on the sweeter end of the spectrum, and this was perfect for me.  The flavor palette is described to give you “aromas of honeysuckle and flavors of pear, pineapple and lemon custard.”  When I first tasted it, it was giving me crisp cider-type vibes, but overall it was very light and refreshing.  It wasn’t too strong or too sweet, pretty well-balanced as far as the taste goes.  I wish I had dessert along with it, but it’s also not a bad wine to have after a long week and you’re ready to wind down and head into the weekend.  If you’re looking for a light wine that’s rich in bold flavors, I would pick up this one; Pacific Rim will not disappoint.
