Wine Review: This light yellow colored Riesling from Fox Run is a steal at $14. It opens with a very shy mild green apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very well balanced, slightly syrupy, and delicate. The flavor profile is a very tasty gentle mild lime with hints of peach and tangerine. The finish is semi-dry and very pleasant. This Riesling is extremely food friendly and the best wine that I have covered from Fox Run. I would pair it with spicy Thai food or Mexican dishes. Cheers! - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Loads of tree fruit aromas, especially nectarine and tangerine, are found in this fragrant wine. The palate is perfectly balanced, with a soft yet zesty finish. The slight sweetness makes this Riesling incredibly versatile. Lovers of rich, complex wines will find this wine highly cellar-worthy.
