Wine Review: This yellow colored dessert wine from Phelps is fantastic. This wine opens with a very appealing fig, pineapple, and quince bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and pleasantly sweet. The flavor profile is a very tasty green apple jelly with notes of mango, dried apricot, and honey. The finish is rather sweet and nicely prolonged. The panel suggested pairing this gem with blueberry cobbler or a French vanilla cheesecake. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2010 Scheurebe has delicate aromas of apricot, candied pineapple and orange blossom. Characteristics of crushed rock and honey meld along with balanced acidity and a viscous texture lend to the long-lasting and refreshing finish. This wine’s balance, sugar level and low alcohol combine for a long, graceful aging highlighted by intense stone fruit and layers of caramel.
