Taste profile from the winemaker: "Rich with citrus flavors and aromas, with hints of apricots and fresh lemon. Expect a subtle floral fragrance tinged with freshly cut grasses. Light-bodied with the ability to pair with a wide variety of flavors."

ABC Wines review: Imported from Germany under the Turning Leaf brand, this riesling has light, fresh aromas of fresh tropical fruit. Moderately sweet, the taste has a bit more citrus character to it adding a refreshing tartness. The finish is flat with a slight, but odd, after-taste. It should pair well with many Asian dishes. A very good value, especially if available at less than the price we paid. Our score: Average.
