Wine Review: This light gold colored Riesling is a very good value. It opens with a Bosc pear and light honey like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green apple with notes of minerality. I also detected hints of apricot, tangerine and lime. The finish is semi-dry and its acidity is tingly and lingers. Our mini-tasting group thought this Riesling would pair well with spring rolls. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: The 2014 BEX Riesling is a brilliant straw color with less yellow fruit notes than the 2013 vintage. Aromas of orange blossom, lime and white grapefruit are followed by mouthwatering flavors of lime and mandarin orange. BEX finishes with mineral and citrus zest highlights. Enjoy BEX Riesling as an aperitif, an accompaniment to light or spicy cuisine, or as a finale served with dessert.
