Wine Review: This light yellow colored Spatlese opens with inviting sweet tea like bouquet with a hint of tangerine. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, sweet and savory. The flavor profile is lemon with infused oolong tea and orange and a hint of thyme. The finish remains sweet and its flavors linger for a long time. This is a perfect sipping Riesling to serve with pan-fried scallops with balsamic glaze. Enjoy – Ken
