Green apple, floweriness, and oranges on the nose. Tastes dry to off-dry with plenty of fruit and crisp acidity. It is well-balanced overall and an excellent summer wine.

Light and fruity with a hint of sweetness Well priced. A nice wine for summer. Tasted February 2012.

A swirl of my glass showed curtains that where extremely fast. Reading the label on the bottle the alcohol per vol. was not too high so that told me to get ready for a blast of sweetness. It delivered as suggested.

This is a very sweet riesling, but interesting enough is balanced with some good old mouth watering acidity.

Fruits do take a back seat however. Noted apples and peaches on the nose and taste.

Long lasting finish. This one is a good summer time patio sipper. Just chill and serve.
