Wine Review: This pale straw colored Riesling from Fox Run opens with a tangerine and pear like bouquet with hints of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mild lime with notes of pear and green apple. I also detected a hint of gentle minerality through-out. The finish is semi-dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Riesling is not overly complex, but it is very food friendly and versatile. I would pair it with a Ritz cracker encrusted baked haddock. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: We are extremely proud of this zesty aromatic dry Riesling. It is a classic example of the style of wine that has made the Finger Lakes world famous. Aromas of lime zest and wet rocks let the taster know that this is a serious Finger Lakes Riesling. In the mouth, this wine displays abundant citrus and tree fruit flavors and mouth-watering acidity. Food Pairings: Creates a flavorful combination with foods featuring soy sauce or ginger as well as creole spices and BBQ.

Organic status: not organic
