Review date: October 7, 2016

Wine Review: This very pale white gold colored Riesling from the Mosel region of Germany opens with a faint green tea, lime and yellow grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral infused mild grapefruit and clementine blend with hints of nectarine and peach tea. The finish is semi-dry and its flavors and acidity linger nicely. I would pair this good value Riesling with grilled coconut shrimp with a mango dipping sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Picked early at Kabinett-level Ripeness, grapes from the Mosel vineyards are fermented to a just dry-off wine in order to produce a drier-style Riesling to pair with a wide array of foods or simply drink as an aperitif. This wine is extremely well structured with a deep golden color and powerful but also elegant characteristics: Minerals, peaches, pear cumquat, watermelon, currant grapefruit with a hint of gooseberry and raspberry. It is blended with the Badstube Kabinett from the Dr. H. Thanisch estate to increase the quality and character of the wine but it is not a 100% Estate wine. An ideal match with Asian cuisine, particularly sweet & sour dishes or sushi. It will also match most delicately flavored poultry and seafood dishes.

Organic status: not organic
