Wine Review: This 2015 Villa Huesgen Riesling is light straw in color and opens with an inviting citrus bouquet which includes pineapple, minerality and hints of cantaloupe and tangerine. At times, I also detected a hint of pleasant coconut while swirling it. The light to medium bodied palate is smooth and lively with notes of lemon-lime and hints of grapefruit and clementine. The balanced acidity brought this Riesling together and made it quite enjoyable. The finish was semi-dry and faded away nicely. I would pair this Riesling with shrimp pad Thai or a Vietnamese chicken lemongrass dish. - Joe

Winemaker Notes: This specially selected Riesling combines juicy fruit and an elegant taste with well-balanced character and a crisp finish. A food-friendly wine, lush and easy to drink on many different occasions. It is modern and easy-going with elegance, freshness and finesse. The fresh, fine nose reveals apricots and peaches with a good amount of minerality. One the palate, it is juicy with a refined acidity, balanced mouthfeel, and lengthy finish. This wine is best served chilled with light appetizers, white fish and poultry. It is at its peak now through 2018.
