Wine Review: This pale straw colored Riesling from Dr. Fischer opens with a mild green apple and faint lime bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly sweet and nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused Bosc pear with hints of lime. The finish is semi-sweet and brief. The panel suggested that Riesling would pair well with chicken lo-mein. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Reflects the typical qualities of Saar Riesling great minerality and acidity that more than off sets the residual sugar, making the wine seem drier than other German Riesling Kabinetts. It would pair perfectly with richer fowl, cream sauces, raw or cooked seafood dishes as well as a wide variety of cheeses, including aged cheeses. With its wonderful acidity, it also makes the perfect aperitif to jump-start a meal.
