Wine Review: This almost clear colored Riesling opens with a tangerine, ginger and honey bouquet. It also displays a few very tiny bubbles. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly sweet, pleasantly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe tangerine with notes of pear and ginger. The finish remains a little sweet and fresh. This Riesling would be a nice aperitif. I would serve it as an opening wine with spring rolls or quiche Lorraine tarts. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: What can we say about SEXT Riesling that you all don't already know? The 2014 version is bright, fresh and punchy, much like the 2013 SEXT, but with a bit more weight and perceived sweetness (although the sugar content is actually significantly lower than 2013), and a bit more alcohol. The aromatics show riper tones, accentuated with jasmine, butterscotch, apple butter, and lemonade. On the palate, bright and spritzy as always, showcasing pear, honey, and star fruit, with an ultimately silky finish and crispness like a sweet fresh breeze on a warm summer evening.
