Wine Review: This light safflower oil colored Riesling from the Finger Lakes opens with a pleasing aroma of fruity pineapple, melon and bananas. On the palate, the aromas carry through and also include tropical fruits and nice acidity. This Riesling is well balanced with a nice full body and good structure. The finish is smooth and fruity. I would pair this very good value Riesling with an assorted cheese platter or just by itself with friends. - Joe
Winemaker Notes: Our sweetest Riesling, lush and fruity with acidity to balance the sweetness. Tropical fruits aromas with citrus and pineapple flavors are accented by rich honey overtones.
