Wine Review: This wine opens with a pleasant peach bouquet. On the palate, this wine is slightly sweet, nicely round, and quite tasty. The ripe peach flavors are quite persistent on the palate. The finish is delicate and subtle. It would be a nice finishing wine to have as a dessert or with a dessert. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A refreshing peach nose and honeysuckle with delicate citrus fruit flavors that dance in the mouth. The lingering spicy pear finish and lively texture reveals an abundance of Riesling character. The reason fish were created.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Riesling.
