Covey Run Riesling 2007 wine review by (PB)
This Washington state producer has become one of those reliable makers who produce value wines year after year, varietal after varietal. This one is no exception.
Presentation of light straw with aromas of vibrant powdery, banana cream pie, vanilla pudding, and light citrus.
Palate--a cream foundation with off dry structure, light lemon notes and other tropical fruit with a touch of green apple.
It is tasty even if a bit quick but is juicy to the core and at $8, keep it on hand and raise a glass. It was wonderful with my breaded, deep fried, Maine shrimp (99 cents a pound--oh yeah!) but would be great as an aperitif or a nice chilled summer quaff.
