Wine Review: This straw colored Riesling from the Finger Lakes is very nice. It opens with a mild floral and peach bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, delicate and a little juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused Bosc pear with a hint of ginger and quince. The finish is dry and softly fades away. This gentle Riesling would pair perfectly with spring rolls. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Our signature Riesling is vibrant and aromatic, featuring the distinctive minerality that has become our trademark. Fragrant essence of spring blossoms sets the stage for a succulent palate of early fruit, balanced with a refreshing crispness, revealing the true qualities of the Riesling grape. A brilliant texture carries into a lingering finish, in a wine that accommodates a wide range of food including Asian cuisine, poultry, and shellfish.
