Tasting Notes

This Riesling is pale yellow in color with green hints. There are fruity aromas of peach and ripe fruit on the nose. On the palate there is a perfect equilibrium of acidity which is typical of this varietal. It is full and round with an elegant minerality that flows to the finish. Pairs well with carpaccio, salmon, mussels and fried potatoes.
