Wine Review: Wines like this one are why I expect to see Riesling make a comeback in terms of popularity. The nose on this wine was a bit shy. However, on the palate, the wine was quite tasty and vibrant. This wine did a nice job of balancing the acids, sugars, and flavors. The finish was wonderful. Enjoy – Ken (VG+)2/07

This pale yellow wine has a light citrus and steely bouquet. On the palate, this light to medium bodied wine is vibrant, very nicely balanced, a touch acidic, and not too sweet. One panelist described the wine as uniformly built. The flavor profile is lemon lime. The finish is refreshing and smooth. This is an easy to drink wine to enjoy this summer. Enjoy – KWGTP
