Reviews and Ratings

Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Fresh red apples, toasted nuts, apricot on the nose. A delicious consistent Riesling from Alsace that is great value. Flavours of apple and pear with a touch of honey and lemon drizzled on top. Pair with chicken - roasted or prepared with curry.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Still my go-to Riesling after several years. Delicate, well-balanced and versatile. Pretty peach, white floral, citrus and petrol aromas with a dry, finely structured mouthfeel and citrus lemon finish. Great value.
Tasted Sept. 2016
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Tart peach and apple aromas with a touch of white pepper, white flowers, and lime zest. Medium-high acidity with a slight softness in the mouth and a tart yellow apple and lemon taste. Fantastic example of Riesling.
Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of peaches and honey. Medium-bodied, off dry with tastes of yellow delicious apple and a lingering buttery but tart finish. Not a 'hit you over the head' with sweetness. I enjoyed this! I would pair with an arugula salad with white wine vinager-based dressing and mandarin oranges.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pear and tropical fruit aromas with pineapple, lemon, spice and stone notes on the palate. Nice minerality and a crisp acidic finish.
