Delicious, delightful, dry. This crisp, fruit-forward Riesling opens the Zilliken collection with aromatic white flowers, apricot and smoky wet stones. Juicy, balanced flavors layered around a tense stony core. Drinking beautifully now, so open a bottle, put your feet up and enjoy!
A delight on its own or with food. The sunny, juicy flavors make an ideal complement to a salad or freshwater fish such as perch or trout.
