Pacific Rim Classics 2022 Pacific Rim Dry Riesling

Crisp and fresh aromas of saline, lavender and chilled Asian pear slices are a nice start. Meyer lemon and grapefruit flavors are seasoned with spicy clove and ginger notes and a touch of pine needles. More acidity would be welcome, but overall an enjoyable wine.

The wine's primary aroma of pineapples and wet rocks is joined by a trace of something smoky, like a roaring campfire at the beach. Peaches and lemon-lime soda pop flavors are tempered by a bit of orange zest. This off-dry Riesling is need of a bit more acidity.

Pacific Rim Classics 2022 Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling

This is indeed a sweet wine. The wine also has plenty of acidity, so it has that going for it. Aromas of lemon tarts and 7-Up are a canary in the residual sugar coal mine. Flavors like lemon drop hard candies and a peach margarita continue the theme. The wine is sweet without hitting cloying territory.
