Product Description

This pale yellow colored Riesling opens with a fragrant ripe pear bouquet with a hint of Clementine. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, quite sweet, and viscous. It displays juicy ripe pineapple and fruit cocktail like flavors with a hint of mandarin orange. The finish is quite sweet and lingers. The group thought this wine would pair well with spicy Thai food.

Varietal: Riesling

Region: Mosel-Saar-Ruwer

Region Description:

(MOH zel zar ROO ver)—This dramatically beautiful region of western Germany produces exceptional white wines from the Riesling grape. Among the lightest in Germany, these wines usually contain less than 10% alcohol and they are generally delicate, fresh, and bursting with flavor. With its flowery tastes and aromas, Mosel Riesling is a great wine to drink in the spring. Look for the words “Erzeugerabfüllung” or Gutsabfüllung,” which indicate that the wine was estate bottled and not mass-produced.
