Taste profile from the winemaker: "Enticing aromas of baked pear and fresh peaches are complemented by a touch of sandalwood. A bright, sweet-tart finish follows loads of generous fruit salad flavors."

ABC Wines review: This riesling exhibits a very light, almost floral fragrance of sweet fruit. The initial taste is quite sweet but flavorful and complex. The finish is slightly dry, a bit tart, and surprisingly smooth and long-lasting. This wine would do nicely as a before dinner aperitif or paired with a spicy dessert. Our score: Above Average.
