Wine Review: This straw colored Riesling is fragrant and opens with a wet stone and lime like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and shows nice and bright acidity. It is also quite mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe clementine with notes of green apple and mild minerality. I also detected a hint of lime and white pepper. Its sweet flavors linger nicely after the wine is gone. This wine would pair well with seared scallops. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A light and minerally Riesling, racy and spritzy with flowery and smoky notes coming from the slate soil. It has an almost electrifying acidity, while remaining poised and very delicate at the same time.
