Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Riesling is a tad sweeter than the Ockfener, but it was the consensus winner in a mini flight of mostly QbA level Rieslings. It opens with a light lime bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced, and fresh. The flavor profile is a blend of light lime and green apple with a touch of minerality gently infused. The finish is delicately sweet and very refreshing. This is a pleasant food friendly with that would be perfect in the summer and served with grilled scallops. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: An elegant, crisp, and fruity Riesling with a hint of natural residual sweetness. This wine has the typical light character of the Riesling grape and the style of a classic Mosel Riesling.
