Wine Review: This white gold colored Riesling from Oregon opens with a mild ginger ale and faint orange bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, acidic, effervescent and pretty sweet. The flavor profile is a ripe Bosc pear and lime blend with lots of saline and a little bit of ruby red grapefruit. The finish is sweet and refreshing. This Riesling would be a very nice aperitif. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Sweet and lively, this SEXT has freshness and sassiness abound. The spritz is as high as we can get under screwcap, and brightens the sweet jasmine blossom, ripe pear, and white peach on the nose. The palate is expressive and lengthy, showing mango nectar, pineapple, lemon peel, Turkish Delights, and ending with a lengthy, rich yet playful finish. Brunch is calling for a new addition, and at under 10% alcohol, you have the answer.
