Wine Review: This almost clear colored Riesling from Fritz Haag is very impressive. It opens with a yellow grapefruit and mild petrol bouquet with hints of sweet fruit lingering in the background. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, pleasantly sweet and silky. The flavor profile is a tasty mild lime and ginger blend with nicely integrated minerality. I also detected hints of pineapple and a touch of white peach in the background. The finish is remains delicately sweet and drifts away nicely. This Riesling its terrific and will be a quaffer. Swirl it at first and enjoy with grilled scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Brauneberger Kabinett Riesling has a very fine, delicate structure, with a lifted aroma that is an intriguing combination of lime peel, fresh herbs and a spicy tingle. Pure and juicy on the palate, with an enervating touch of sweetness, this makes a delicious aperitif.
