Medium Sweet White Wine
Why We Carry It:
A sweet Riesling shouldn't be sweet, it should also have vibrant acidity. This wine has an intriguing balance between the bright and ripe aromas of apricots, white peaches, and caramelized orange zest with a beautifully crisp finish.
At our staff Thanksgiving dinner, even those of us who tend to avoid sweet wines loved this! The sweetness comes across as ripe fruit rather than sugar and the acidity cut right through the richest of foods.
