Wine Review: This light gold colored semi-dry Riesling from Wiemer opens a Bartlett pear bouquet with a hint apricot. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied and nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused light pear with notes of ginger ale. I also detected a hint of green apple and a dash of white pepper. The finish is mostly dry and nicely refreshing. This Riesling would pair well with grilled swordfish kabobs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Riesling is one of the few varietals that shows exceptionally well in all ranges of sweetness. The Semi-Dry Riesling pairs an appropriate balance of sweetness and natural acidity to showcase the variety’s true flavors. An off-dry style allows this wine to be more versatile and often serves as a compromise wine for those trying to decide between different white styles. This wine remains delicate and fruit forward with lemon zest on the nose and bright tangerine on the tongue, leaving the mouth subtly coated into the finish. Food Pairings: Asian cuisine, poultry, shellfish

Organic status: not organic
