Wine Review: This very pale yellow colored Riesling opens with an apricot bouquet with a hint of wet stone, peach, and lime. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, and slightly tangy. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused green apple with notes of white pepper and a hint of lemon-lime towards the end. The finish is dry and its minerality lingers for quite a while. This wine would pair well with a ham and brie sandwich on a French baguette or shrimp scampi. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Riesling is off-dry and complex with aromas of peach and quince in the nose, and flavors of apricot and tangerine on the palate. The palate is smooth, focused and voluptuous, leading to crisp, dry and ethereal finish. This wine has captured the quintessential personality of Finger Lakes Riesling.
