Wine Review: This pale straw-colored wine from the Finger Lakes initially displays tons microscopic bubbles that dissipate quickly. On the nose, this wine opens with a mild petrol and pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly sweet and a little round. The flavor profile is a ripe Bosc pear and mineral blend with notes of green apple and ginger. I also detected a hint of white pepper towards the end. The finish remains slightly sweet and lingers nicely. This Riesling would pair well with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: "Circle" Riesling shows forward fruit flavors of tangerine and apricot with overtones of citrus and honeysuckle. Crisp and slightly sweet, it shows classic Finger Lakes Riesling style and sense of place. It is an exquisite addition to light fare of fruits and cheeses and is a pleasure to enjoy on its own.
