Wine Review: This medium straw-colored Riesling from Zilliken is Excellent. It opens with a fragrant lime and apricot bouquet with hints of pineapple, ginger and clover blossom. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor provide is a very tasty sweet nectarine and apricot blend with notes of honey and ginger. There were also hints of minerality mixed in. The finish is pleasantly sweet and fades away nicely. This terrific Riesling is best enjoyed by sipping on its own. With food, pair it with apricot mousse over crushed fresh almond macaroons. Enjoy – Ken, Karen & Stuart

Winemaker Notes: This fine Spätlese enchants with its long-lasting tropical notes. The scent of pineapple, passion fruit, and vineyard peach are present in the nose. The taste, which captivates with its elegance, is reminiscent of ripe yellow stone fruit and pineapple. A developed acidity gives the Riesling its animating freshness. Very long, invigorating finish. Pair with roasted venison on Brussel sprout leaves and juniper jus or with Indian curry.
