The palate effect of sugar can be mysterious in Riesling. This wine finishes with acid and fruit but is certainly not overtly sweet in flavor. I often find myself reaching for Riesling with seafood and poultry; it’s a wonderful, versatile wine with food. It shows wonderful apple and pear fruit flavors built around a core of zesty acidity. Fresh and pure tasting with flint and mineral notes on the finish. The off-dry nature of this lovely Riesling makes it particularly food friendly and inviting.
