Wine Review: This light yellow colored Riesling from the Finger Lakes opens with a ripe Bosc pear bouquet with hints of ginger and quince. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and round. The flavor profile is a Bosc pear and mineral blend with hints of honey and quince. The finish is semi-dry and its flavors linger and last for a while. I would pair this food friendly Riesling with baked Brie with fig. Enjoy - Ken
