Reviews and Ratings

A Rheingau Riesling with concentrated orange blossom and dried apricot on the nose. You can sniff this one all day and not get tired of it. But, at some point you want to drink this beautifully balanced, crisp Riesling with its apricot compote, pink grapefruit and lemon curd with a long citrus a flinty minerality finish. This wine has some age on it already, but it could cellar for a few more years to further develop all of its complex layers together. Try it with some light curry dishes or smoked fish. -- Community Wine Reviews
