Wine Review: This pale yellow colored wine opens with a fragrant and attractive lime and green apple bouquet with a hint of lavender. On the palate, this medium to full bodied wine is balanced, crisp, with nicely integrated acidity. The flavor profile is a lively lemon lime with notes of mild tea on the back palate. The finish is semi-dry and very refreshing. This wine would pair nicely with turkey or sole almandine. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Compared to dull, wishy-washy stepsisters made from this variety, Navarro's Riesling sparkles with acidity and fruit. Grapes from three fields were harvested over three weeks. The free run juice was fermented and aged as separate lots in oak ovals for six months. In April 2007 this blend was selected; its apple-apricot flavors have a gentle hint of charcuterie from the extended lees contact and a hint of vanilla from the French oak casks. It will remain beautiful well beyond midnight.
