Tried another bottle, this time with chicken curry - very nice, a little too sweet for some, but i feel that its very well made and well balanced with good acidity, floral notes, peach tones and a nice mineral finish.
An off-dry wine with good acidity to keep it in balance. Floral and light with a beautiful sweet finish. Its a classy off-dry wine, not some sickly monster. Highly recommended and a good example of a New York Reisling.
