Wine Review: This pale straw colored Riesling opens with a mild pear bouquet with a hint of apricot. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and pleasantly sweet. The flavor profile is tangerine with notes of quince and a hint of apricot. The finish is refreshing and pleasantly semi-sweet and lingers. This Riesling would pair well with a honey baked ham with sliced pineapple or fish (no cream sauce) and roasted vegetables. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Riesling is voluptuous and racy with bright citrus aromas in the nose and a perfectly balanced palate with a luscious sweetness and edgy acidity. This vibrant interplay of sweetness and acidity create a wine that is intriguing and pairs remarkably well with food. Think of enjoying it with pork loin stuffed with peach and fennel chutney, or with a chilled apricot soup. This wine has captured the quintessential personality of Finger Lakes Riesling.
