Taste profile from the winemaker: "Pale straw in color with green hues, this bright Riesling shows zesty lemon and lime characteristics, which follow onto a fresh and lively round palate with tropical fruit flavors. A lingering, fruity finish."

ABC Wines review: This riesling has herbal citrus, most notably lime, aromas. The taste has a mineral sweetness that lacks significant fruit flavors and has an almost chalky texture. The finish is weak but tends to improve after the bottle has been opened for 15-20 minutes. Our score: Below Average.
