Wine Review: This slightly cloudy and pale yellow colored Riesling from Dr. Pauly Bergweiler opens with a fragrant honeysuckle, lemon and wet stone bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. It has a sleek mouthfeel as well. The flavor profile is a gentle grapefruit with nice notes of minerality and hints of quince and apricot. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors fade away nicely. This wine is very food friendly and would pair perfectly with swordfish kabobs. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This dry style Riesling shows impressive complexity with aromas of spice and orange blossom complimenting the core of apple and pear fruit. It's most impressive on the palate showing great balance between lively acidity and just a touch of residual sugar. It's middle Mosel origins are also reflected in the mineral-driven flavor-profile. A great aperitif wine it would also compliment a wide array of lighter cuisine, cream sauces and soft cheeses.
