Tasting Notes

Delicate at first then tropically ripe, brimming with apricot, nectarine and a touch of pineapple. Lemon citrus and acacia blossom balance the sweetness effortlessly.

Serving Suggestion

Pair with Middle Eastern, Moroccan, Thai, and Asian cuisines. Pairs well with spicy and aromatic ingredients like pepper, ginger, curry, sesame, and soy. Also great with Spicy BBQ and wings.

Wine Advocate

90 points || The 2019 Semi-Dry Riesling comes in with 11.5% alcohol, 22 grams per liter of residual sugar and seven grams of total acidity. Not quite as aggressive as the Dry Riesling, this nonetheless shows off its nice acidity early and often. Focused, precise and pure, it has fine balance. At this price level, this (like its sibling) is a no-brainer purchase. The Dry Riesling has a lot more energy, while this is predictably lusher. Reasonable minds and personal preferences might differ as to which is better. I'd give the nod to the Dry Riesling just now, but it might depend on my mood and how I would use it.
