Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Riesling opens with a petrol, green pear, and wet stone bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, crisp and lively. The flavor profile is mineraly and stoney with notes of green apple. The finish is dry and lingers slightly. This Good and affordable dry Riesling would pair well with a monte cristo sandwich. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Stump Jump Riesling is crisp and refreshing. The nose is inviting and full of passion fruit, limes, red apple and rose petals. The palate is juicy with crisp lime character initially present before it opens to lemons and a cascade of tropical fruits. The finish is fresh and clean with wonderfully integrated acidity.
