tasting note

This is a dry Riesling (Indice 1) yet with a broad and opulent appeal which features notes of ripe citrus with damp earth and hints of white flowers.

food pairing

As a dry Riesling this is supremely versatile, pairing nicely with fish and meat with sufficient acidity to counter fat plus expansive richness to offset spice.
