Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

My favourite kind of Riesling with a delicate nose of peach, lemon and subtle minerality. The beautiful melodious palate shows bright ripe peach, apricot, lemon, honey and slight mineral elements. Smooth and well-balanced with crisp acidity with a lingering citrus-peach finish. A beautiful wine at a very reasonable price-$14.95. I'm sure this is what they serve in Heaven.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Floral, apple, peach, pear, apricot, citrus - all a recipe for Alsace Riesling. This is a beautiful nose indeed. The palate repeats with additional minerlity and apple leaning to green apple. Bright acidity and a lingering candied lemon finish. Very nice. Definitely great value at $15. Serve well chilled. I enjoyed this on it's own. Perfect turkey wine.
Tasted: March 2015
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A very food friendly wine with main aromas of lemon, tart yellow apple, and white flowers, as well as great minerality and a touch of apricot. The taste is tart lemon and yellow apple and very crisp. This wine was great on its own, but paired with haddock and fiddle-heads was absolutely perfect, elevating both.
This Alsatian white wine is bone dry and yet has the floral aromatics of Riesling. Great acidity for seafood and salads. - Community Wine Reviews
