Wine Review: This light-yellow colored Riesling from Germany opens with a fragrant white peach and yellow grapefruit bouquet with a hint of chamomile and kiwi. On the palate, this wine is light bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, bright and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a lime and white peach blend with notes of pineapple, green apple, and saline. I also detected some green tea, candied ginger, and crushed stone in the aftertaste. The finish is off-dry, and its acidity and flavors linger for quite some time. I would pair this quaffable Riesling with broiled scallops with a lime drizzle sauce. Enjoy - Ken & Joe

Winemaker Notes: True to its name, the nose of this feinherb opens with an aromatic summer symphony of currants, strawberry, and gooseberry, accented with grace notes of summer lilacs. Crisp and refreshing, it reveals a balanced acidity, citrus juiciness, and lingering, elegant pith. Simple but never simplistic, and the perfect introduction to the sweeter side of the Zilliken range. For pairing, think cheese. From beetroot salad with goat cheese to fresh cheese with red berries to a tomato confit with burrata.
