Wine Review: This straw colored dry Riesling from down under opens with a mild bee’s wax and faint apricot bouquet. On the palate this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Anjou pear with notes of lime and clementine. The finish is dry and subtle. This wine is food friendly and would pair well with fish and seafood dishes. I would pair it with linguine with a garlic clam broth. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A wine of brilliant clarity, which has a very pale straw colour with lime green, tinges. The nose shows lifted aromas of citrus blossom, musk, green apple, lime and quince mixed with a delicious mineral edge, which are indicators of an excellent wine. A wine of exceptional length, the palate displays classic Rieslings flavours of lime and grapefruit and green apple. This is a wine with great intensity and depth of flavour. The palate finishes with clean crisp succulent acidity.
