Stoney Mesa Winery is a Colorado Winery located in Cedaredge, CO. All the fruit for their wine comes from the Western Slope. Bret is the winemaker and owns 3 vineyards with different varietals being grown.
This Riesling has a special place in my heart.. I actually helped pick the grapes for this wine.. Fighting the bugs, the stickiness of the grapes and the heat... What an experience! I plan to do it again! Something about being involved in the process to make you feel connected.
This Riesling is my favorite that Stoney Mesa has produced. It has a lovely pineapple on the nose with a hit of vanilla giving you a creamy smell. The palate gets to enjoy that same pleasure as it coats the tongue. Even though this wine is sweet, it is less sweet than the prior year Riesling. With that said it is still sweet for all you sweet wine lovers out there. I can't wait to share this with the general public! You will love this wine!
