Wine Review: This yellow colored Spatlese from the Rheinhessen region opens with a fragrant honey and apricot bouquet with hints of pear. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly viscous and brisk. The flavor profile is a candied ginger with notes of apricot and orange marmalade and a hint of Golden delicious apple. The finish is pleasantly sweet and its flavors and well managed acidity are long lasting. I would enjoy this Riesling with spring rolls. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Hints of pine frond, earth and smoke entice on the nose of this unusual, remarkably well-priced Riesling. Semi-sweet in style, it's rich and creamy on the palate with luscious peach and grapefruit flavors. It's surprising nuanced too, exposing layers of steel, crushed mineral and acid that meld beautifully through a long finish. A perfect match for strong Indian and Asian spiced dishes.
