Solid. Pale, yellow/green. Aromas of melon, citrus, luscious fruits. Quite sprizy on the palate, which helps balance the residual sugar. A good choice to pair with spicy foods. Drunken noodles tonight. Good value from @lastbottlewines

Sweetly yellow, kaleidoscopicly citrus, meant to be served on The Calypso before a dive in search of lost doubloons. Out of the corner of your eye, you see yourself in a mirror and think you're wearing a small black touque and a silver beard.

Loved the crisp taste and slight carbonation. Perfect with fish one night and risotto the next. Not too sweet but just sweet enough to want to drink all on its own or even as dessert;)

Diesel fuel with green apples. Acidic, refreshing, sweet finish. Feels so different to 2012 one, but I damn love it.

A medium dry Riesling with honey and tart apple flavors. Slightly sweeter than previous vintages.
