Wine Review: This almost clear colored Riesling from Fox Run opens with a quince and lime like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is semi-sweet with nicely integrated acidity, making it mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe green grape with notes of mild minerality and Bosc pear. The finish remains semi-sweet and lingers nicely. This Riesling would pair well with swordfish kabobs. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Loads of tree fruit aromas, along with honeydew melon and lime zest, are found in this fragrant wine. The palate is perfectly balanced, with a soft yet zesty finish. The moderate sweetness makes this Riesling incredibly versatile. Lovers of rich, complex wines will find this wine highly cellar-worthy. Creates a flavorful combination with foods featuring soy sauce or ginger as well as creole spices and BBQ. Also perfect with pork, duck, chevre & honey, or warm brie with a dried fruit topping.

Organic status: not organic

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.
