Wine Review: This pale straw colored Spätlese-level Riesling from Georg Albrecht Schneider is very good. It opens with a fragrant pineapple and apricot bouquet with hints of lychee and ginger. On the palate, this wine is pleasantly sweet and nicely acidic. The flavor profile is a quince and tangerine blend with notes of pineapple and green tea. The finish remains sweet and the acidity lingers nicely. This wine's balance between its sweetness and acidity make it a nice match for fried scallops. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Hints of pine frond, earth and smoke entice on the nose of this unusual, remarkably well-priced Riesling. Semi-sweet in style, it’s rich and creamy on the palate with luscious peach and grapefruit flavors. It’s surprising nuanced too, exposing layers of steel, crushed mineral and acid that meld beautifully through a long finish. A perfect match for strong Indian and Asian spiced dishes.
