A Bit Too Sweet

The Solena reminded me more of an old style Riesling than a Oregon PInot Gris. Sweet and flowery with enough acid to balance on the palate. Having spent two weeks traveling and drinking along the Rhine, Mosel, and Danube I enjoy a slightly sweeter well made white wine but this was a bit too sweet/flowery for my taste. Much preferred the Jermann Pinot Grigio or the first wine I bought at Wine Access the Chehalem Pinot Gris. Still the wine was well made and very drinkable just not quite my style.

I waited 5 weeks after receiving my shipment to let the wine "rest" after its journey. My tasting of the first bottle was a bit disappointing. There was nice fruit when first tasting but the finish was "astringent", very dry and acidic. It improved during the meal (paired with pasta and a light sauce) but never lost its astringency. I will plan to age it for a year or so to see if it softens.
