Vin du Lac 2008 "Les Amis" Riesling Lake Chelan
In the glass, the Vin du Lac "Les Amis" Riesling Lake Chelan (13%) was a clear, greenish yellow straw color evoking notes of fresh, bright tropical pineapple with hints of orange zest. This 75% riesling, 18% muscat, and 7% gewurtz blend delivered a clean, crisp mouthfeel with nice fruit, well balanced acidity against the slight residual sugar.
I really liked this Lake Chelan wine, which I purchased at the winery for $14. It went very well with our spicy Thai food dinner as well as on its own as well. The folks at Vin du Lac suggest it might be a sacrilege for blending riesling, but in this case the "Les Amis" is a wine that warrants a reprieve.
I would definitely buy another bottle or more of this delicious, fun wine.
