Again one from the colorful US shelves. The intriguing name “Petite Petit” is actually a wink to the wine’s blend composed of Petite Syrah and Petit Verdot. I like the humor in it and I wonder how “big” the wine actually tastes… See more funky labels wines.
This is a Riesling from Brass Tacks I picked up at Singapore Airport Duty Free. Interesting for me as a German since it’s a Riesling – a German varietal – grown in the US; California to be precise. Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey County to be even more precise. And it definitely beat my expectations. No detailed notes on it, but I remember a nice fruit-acidity-balance and a authentic Riesling personality. I’ll keep an eye on it.
