Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Riesling opens with a wet stone, lime, and orange bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, round, and pleasantly sweet. The flavor profile is a peach and tangerine blend with notes of lime. The finish remains sweet. Pair this affordable Riesling with pound cake. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Rich and full with aromas and flavors of honey, almonds, apricots, peaches, lime and mango. A perfect match for spicy cuisine, fruits, aged cheeses and desserts with dairy, citrus or nuts.
