Wine Review: This pale straw-colored "Riesling with bubbles" (alcohol removed) wine opens with a slightly ripe bouquet of citrus, pineapple, cantaloupe, pizza dough and light guava. The medium body has a nice bubbly feel and is smooth, tangy, and lively with mouthwatering acidity and nice minerality. The flavor profile is citrus, pineapple, green apple, and saline blend. The tangy palate carries through to a dry and extended finish. I would recommend pairing this bubbly Riesling from Germany with a goat cheese salad with arugula and apples. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: To craft a superior-quality alcohol-removed wine, careful thought has to be given from the beginning. We start with high-quality Mosel valley fruit and ferment it the same way we do our regular wines. Because it's Riesling from the Mosel, the finished wine is already “Lo” in alcohol. The wine then undergoes a state-of-the-art alcohol removal process called vacuum distillation. Because there's such low alcohol to begin with, there’s hardly any to remove! The result is a perfect balance of fruitiness and crisp acidity, with a brisk and lively finish. Added carbonization gives the wines its delightful spritz.
