Wine Review: This pale white gold colored Riesling opens with a faint Grand Marnier and green apple bouquet with hints bee's wax and baked pear. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is round, nicely textured, and savory. The flavor profile is a papaya, green tea, marzipan, and lime blend with hints of nectarine pit, lychee, and white pepper. The finish is dry and chewy. The Tasting Panel would pair this Riesling with German Jagerschnitzel (hunter schnitzel with mushroom gravy), duck pate, or with a Kentucky hot brown. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: On the nose, high aromatics with earth notes dominating... minerals, rocks. Terrific palate presence, lots of minerals and white grapefruit, all of which is easy to discern on the nose as well. Dense, rich, and dry. If you keep your hands off these Alsace Rieslings long enough to give them at least 5 or 6 years of bottle age. Pair with crayfish court bouillon or with seafood skewers with béarnaise sauce.
