Wine Review: This pale yellow colored wine with tiny bubbles opens with a fragrant green apple bouquet with a hint of grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, crisp and a bit frizzy. The flavor profile is a semi-sweet green apple with hints of fig and white grapes. The finish remains semi-sweet. This is the kind of wine my sister would love. Good, affordable, and a little sweet. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: It's a mouth-revving Riesling with a bite that sings with mountain-stream purity, quartz-like acidity coming right at you, bold and unapologetic. You may see notes of lemon sorbet, bath salts and white lilies layered with spices from your favorite childhood pie shop…guess that depends on your childhood. But you can't deny its raciness and versatility, sidling up suggestively to food that’s both sweet and spicy. Its intensity will slap you in the face, the oodles of length will have you scrambling for more.
