Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Gruner opens with mild lime bouquet with a hint of green pear. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Anjou pear. The finish is dry and I would pair this wine with steamed mussels. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Fresh straw yellow in color with a bouquet of gooseberries and hints of green apple and white pepper. Medium bodied with a mix of citrus, apple and peach fruit. Light mineral character lingers on the finish and vibrant acidity makes the palate hum. "Terrassen" or terraced signifys that this wine is sourced from multiple terraced vineyards, while the term "Federspiel" is a quality designation.
