Winemaker's Notes

This wine expresses a complex nose of fresh fruit and orange, finishing with apricot and mentholated notes. The mouth is crisp, fresh and full of fruit, for this dry wine that reflects the best riesling varietal expression.

Riesling is a great match for salads, sausage, and seafoods such as shellfish, oysters, mussels, calamari, and crabs, but also pairs with warm or cold goat cheese, caviar, sushi, fondue, frog legs, escargot, and Choucroute.

Critical Acclaim
