On the drier side of the spectrum. More fruit than mineral, but a good texture and a refreshing finish. Well done....

Light bodied, almost sparkling texture. Scents of green apple and honey. Acidy and tart on the palate with hints of dill pickles. Finishes with oily, buttery, petrol taste, similar to movie popcorn. Fine accompaniment to a hot summer picnic lunch and best enjoyed after a days spell in the refrigerator.

A smooth Riesling with kiss of sweetness.

This is a great wine for those who like sweeter rieslings. It has strong notes of Green Apple as well as honey. Good value for money

Green apples. It's really that simple with this one. If you like tart green apples, you'll enjoy this wine. Best served chilled, this is a back-porch or patio type of wine that pairs well with cheese and of course, slightly salty hors d'oeuvres.

Screw cap. This white wine has muted aromas of pink grapefruit, peach, and Flintstones vitamins. Medium in sweetness with white peach, floral, petrol, and wet rocks on the palate. Hints of honey linger on the medium-long finish. Good acidity and medium bodied. Tasted Jan/2014.

This Riesling has a lingering after taste. Its high acidity and tartness make it more difficult to drink on its own over others. Not bad for the price.
