Lemon hard candy all up in this piece. Some light spritz. Very refreshing. Medium bodied with some nice limon action.

A fresh, crisp kabinett, sporting notes of apple and grapefruit, with a hint of orange. This is juicy and balanced, featuring a mineral element that enters on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020. 3,000 cases made. -BS Release Price: $20 Wine Spectator. A Riesling wine from Mosel Saar Ruwer in Germany. 2008 Doctor Loosen Estate Riesling Kabinett Blue Slate 750ml
