Sweet honey crisp yellow apples, pears, hints of pineapple and subtle minerals. Light acidity and medium alcohol content with a medium finish. This was good drinkable sweet white but only for a glass or two, I prefer dry wines.

A great semi-sweet Reisling with a nice mineral finish and hints of Fuji Apple and melon (cantaloupe?) throughout the mid-palate. Thanks Washington!

Fantastic semi sweet Riesling. Crisp like a tart apple with a peachy aroma.

It was too chilled at first but once is temp'd out (hello index of 105) it mellowed very nicely

About me: I prefer light or medium bodied, semi-sweet, soft/smooth, fruity nose, weak or medium flavor, clean finish. Don't care for very sweet, acidic, dry, crisp, oaky, bitter, peppery, tannic, strong, heavy. Usually don't eat when I drink wine. Rating only reflects my preference. Review: Opens semi-sweet, quickly brings out mineral lime acidity, little bit of peach, then finishes mild and clean. Should be even better with appropriately paired foods (wine maker suggested smokey roast ham or spicy Asian cuisine).
