Wine Review: This pale straw colored Riesling from the Finger Lakes is very unique. It opens with a mild lemon and tangerine like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full-bodied and caries it weight throughout. It’s also slightly acidic, yet viscous and round. The flavor profile is a mild grapefruit with notes of lemon and lime. It reminds me of a rich Sauvignon Blanc. The finish is semi-dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Riesling is food friendly and would pair well with halibut with a lobster cream sauce or stripped sea bass. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Apricots explode from the glass with hints of peach, as this beautiful balanced Riesling reveals aromas of clementine and honeydew, while the palate is treated to honey and hints of lemon zest. Enjoy this wine as an aperitif, or serve with sweet potato & black bean enchiladas spiced with chipotle.
