Wine Review: This medium straw-colored Riesling from Zilliken is very impressive! It opens with a very fragrant lime and ripe honeydew melon bouquet with hints of kiwi and ginger. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, round, smooth and slightly sweet. The flavor profile is a delicious blend lime and green apple with notes of nicely integrated ginger and papaya. The finish remains pleasantly slightly sweet and drifts away nicely. You could drink this very impressive Riesling on its own. With food it paired fantastically well with my Easter Jambalaya. It would go well with other spicy dishes like Thai food. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A brilliantly juicy and vibrant Riesling in the delicate and low-alcohol Kabinett style that can only happen in cool climates. This uniquely German "Prädikat" style combines a light, supple texture with aromatic intensity and a scintillating mineral tension. The wine has a very fine fruitiness, with lively, ripe acidity and that classic Saar minerality. It is already quite a pleasure to drink.
