Wine Review: This light yellow colored dessert wine is made from a grape you likely have never heard of, Scheurebe. The panel found its bouquet to be a tropical fruit salad. It featured faint pineapple, lychee, and apricot. On the palate, we found this wine to be light bodied, sweet and pleasant. The flavor profile is a tasty tangerine and peach blend with hints of apricot. The finish remains sweet and drifts away nicely. The panel suggested that this offering was a dessert all by itself. One panelist suggested pouring it over vanilla ice cream. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2013 Eisrebe has aromatic layers of honey, apricot, marmalade and tropical fruits. The texture is viscous with flavors of peach, lemon meringue and vanilla creme brulee that tie in perfectly with the fresh, bright and lingering palate.
