Gentle notes of lilacs, lime and apricots. A playful tension between racy acidity and lithe, ripe fruit flavors make this a wine that could only ever be Riesling. A wine of length, not weight — a wine that appeals to the heart as much than the head. Elegant and enchanting.
To best highlight this Riesling's uncomplicated and easy charms, try a dish of cold crawfish, shrimp salad with rice and avocado or, for pure divinity, the first fresh raspberries from the summer garden.
