Wine Review: This white gold colored wine is a classic Aussie dry-styled Riesling. It opens with a mild petrol, bees wax and Bosc pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is balanced, smooth and easy to enjoy. The flavor profile is a pleasant green apple with hints of grapefruit and touch of lime. The finish remains dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Riesling would pair well with parmesan and almond crusted baked tilapia. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The bouquet shows fragrant and bright notes of lime blossom and cut lemon greet the nose, and are met with underlying hints of kaffir lime leaf and subtle spice. The palate is taut and focused offering lively lemon curd, lime pith and floral notes. Racy acidity defines the palate and provides great drive. These elements are woven together with a mineral finish.
