Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Riesling opens with a very inviting floral and ripe pear bouquet with a hint of orange peel. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and very nicely balanced between its sweetness and acidity. The flavor profile is a tasty mild pineapple with hints of peach, lemon-lime and green tea. The finish remains pleasantly sweet and subtle. This Riesling is a very good drinking wine and could serve a dessert. You could also serve it with a mixed cheese platter for finish of a nice meal. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bright golden in colour with a flinty minerality and an animating very well integrated tartness. The opulent ripe yellow fruit with pineapple and mango as well as a hint of elderberries and a pinch of salt in the aftertaste make this wine memorable. Very well balanced with lots of facettes. Matches delicate dishes perfectly. Great with salads, poultry but also with Curries or a Risotto.
