Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Riesling opens with a candle wax, pear, and mild petrol bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, lively, crisp and acidic. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused green apple with notes of all spice, tangerine, and white pepper. I also detected a touch of lemon towards the end. The finish is semi-dry and pleasantly refreshing. This Riesling would nicely complement linguine with clams in a white wine broth. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Cold Creek Vineyard is known for producing a rich, soft style of Riesling because of the area's warm temperatures. The wine offers aromas of ripe peach and grapefruit with a refined elegance and a refreshing finish. The wine's concentration and intense focused fruit is attributed to the older vines at Cold Creek.
