Wine Review: This dry-styled Riesling from the Seneca Lake is almost clear with a shade of white gold on the rim. It opens with a lime and flinty wet gravel like bouquet with hints of candle wax. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, clean and smooth. The flavor profile is a lime and green grape blend with notes of Macoun apple, almond paste and touch of lemon pith. The finish is dry, warm and a bit brief. While this Riesling is not overly complex, it is very good. The Tasting panel suggested pairing it with roast pork or smoked oysters. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Silvan Riesling is all about capturing Riesling's exuberance while dialing in subtle flavors and textures from barrel fermentation. Look for aromas of lime peel and wet slate coupled with hazelnuts and bread dough. This wine is just off dry, with a distinctive creamy richness and refreshing finish.
