Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Riesling opens with a mild peach like bouquet with a hint of wet stone and orange. On the palate, this wine is rather sweet, acidic, and viscous. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green apple jelly with hints of pineapple, quince and white pepper. The finish remains sweet and its flavors linger nicely. This dessert styled Spatlese would pair well with sharp cheddar cheese and green apple slices. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Lush and ripe, but with a surprisingly firm acid backbone. There is a complex array of fruit aromas and flavors that explode out of the glass. This needs some time for the true character of the wine to emerge.
