Wine Review: This almost clear colored Riesling from the Finger Lakes opens with a mild Anjou pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced, and very approachable. The flavor profile is a very tasty Anjou pear with hints of ginger, lime, white pepper, and slight minerality. The finish is semi-dry, friendly, and subtle. This crowd pleaser is a very good value. It is also very food friendly and would pair well with grilled swordfish. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Riesling is semi-dry with crisp aromas of tangerine and luscious flavors of tropical fruit. On the palate, orange peel, apricot, and lemon curd combine with a barely perceptible sweetness to make a wine that is supple and well-structured. Crisp, dry and aromatic, this wine shows a classic Finger Lakes style that is refreshing, intriguing and satisfying. It is a great wine with a variety of foods and will age gracefully. Try this wine by itself on a spring afternoon, or with a fresh lake trout with lemon and butter.
