Wine Review: This pale straw colored Kabinett level Riesling from Germany opens with a very musty and damp laundry bouquet that was a bit challenging. If you can get past that, you will also detect some pear with a hint of apple. On the palate, the wine is much better as it is light bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a honey and pineapple blend with hints of minerality, green apple and a touch of ginger. The finish is delicate and its mild slightly sweet flavors drift away nicely. The panel suggested pairing this Riesling with fried scallops or Thai food. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A plush style, with plenty of white fruit flavors and a good backbone of acidity. Ripe melon and spice fill the juicy finish. A perfect match for strong Indian and Asian spiced dishes. Also fantastic with a spiced duck leg, dishes with acidic sauces, roasted vegetables and soft cheeses.

Organic status: not organic
