Wine Review: This white gold colored Riesling from Bollig Lehnert is very good and was a big hit with those who tried it. It opens with musty ripe pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly sweet, a touch acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe Bosc pear with notes of apricot, minerality and Newman’s lemonade. The finish is pleasantly sweet and lingers nicely. This refreshing Riesling would pair well with spring rolls. Enjoy - Ken

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
