Wine Review: This white gold colored dry Riesling from Germany opens with a honey and mild apricot bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, slightly acidic and fully engages and captivates your mouth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused tart Granny Smith apple and Anjou pear blend with hints of white pepper, apricot and honey. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors linger and last for a while. This lush style Riesling would pair nicely with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense aroma of juicy green apples and a spicy mineral tone. Begins with fresh fruit and an elegant play of acidity and alcohol. Long finish marked by juicy fruit and a spicy mineral tone. Beautiful, clear structure.

Organic status: not organic
