Wine Characteristics:A delicate floral aroma followed by peach and ripe melon flavors with a soft, lingering finish. Our Semi-Sweet Riesling is comparable in sweetness levels to German Spätlese Riesl

Wine Characteristics: A delicate floral aroma followed by peach and ripe melon flavors with a soft, lingering finish. Our Semi-Sweet Riesling is comparable in sweetness levels to German Spätlese Rieslings. The process by which we sweeten the wine is known as "Suss Reserve" which is a technique used often in Germany and other high quality Riesling regions. Instead of back sweetening a dry Riesling with store bought cane sugar, we set aside a certain volume of Riesling juice each vintage which is frozen in tank and left unfermented. In spring during blending, the juice is thawed and then added back to the wine to the desired level, resulting in a juicy, all naturally-sweetened wine. Food Pairings: A great luncheon, picnic or cocktail wine. As the perfect warm-weather wine, try with ice and a splash of sparkling water as a spritzer. Don’t be afraid to experiment. This wine offers a wide range of food pairing possibilities from pulled pork sandwiches, curried chicken, fruit salad, grilled salmon with mango salsa or as an apéritif.
