Wine Review: This Spatlese level Riesling won its blind tasting flight and tied for 1st place overall in this category with another Spatlese in a different tasting. It is light yellow colored and opens with a faint peach like bouquet with a hint of apricot. On the palate it is full bodied, very nicely balanced, complex, and really smooth. The flavor profile is an incredibly tasty ripe green apple with a touch of sweet lemon. We also detected a hint of minerality as well. The finish is extremely refreshing and it is also very easy to drink and enjoy. We felt it would pair nicely with grilled shrimp with a pineapple salsa. It would also be a wonderful option to pair with your turkey on Thanksgiving. Cheers - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The bouquet is best described as a spicy blend of red apples, honey, and stone fruit overlayering an enticing mineral/slate complexity. The perfect balance of fruit and the enticing acidity shows the wines lucious palate superbly.
