Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Riesling opens with a lime, pear, petrol and ginger bouquet with hints of wet granite. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with plus acidity. It is also crisp and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty lime and crushed stone minerality blend with notes of red apple and grapefruit. I also detected hints of ginger and touch of apricot. The finish is dry and refreshing. We thought this Riesling would pair well with sushi, tilapia fish tacos or pork schnitzel. Enjoy – Ken, Dave and Mark

Winemaker Notes: Like a fireworks display of aromas, this alluring Riesling explodes with layers of green pear, white peach, pineapple, mango, lemon zest and blood orange, as well as hints of ginger, Juicy Fruit gum, white Gummy Bears, jasmine and honeysuckle. On the palate, it is effortlessly balanced, and though it is technically off-dry, because it was grown on a high-altitude, north facing slope it is pure and poised, with an underlying tension that frames the stone fruit and citrus flavors as they glide to a delightfully soft and spicy finish.
