Covey Run Riesling 2004 wine review by (PB)

We’ve reviewed this previously but, as I am fond of saying, I re-review wine every time I have it. This allows me to check maturational variations; consistency of reviews; and tends to dilute out errant reviews due to factors like, an on coming cold that doesn’t really manifest at the time but still affects one’s olfactory abilities.

This wine is a drop dead, bottle of pleasure at an unbelievable price of $7. As a Wine Spectator best buy and an 89 point wine to boot, it is all that and more. On opening there is just wonderful big vanilla aromas with peach, apple and light citrus.

It is delicately sweet and balanced with nice acid and a finish of that is mellow and relaxing. Even if you “don’t like white wines” get over it and grab a bottle of this. If you love white wine, buy a case; it’ll be gone before Fall. Raise glass after glass of this really nice offering from the folks at Covey Run who just keep producing inexpensive, fabulous wines.
