Tasting Notes:
tasted: April 15, 2008 , from a member
88 points "Color: bright; Nose: fragrant; Aromas: citrus fruit, tropical fruit; Acidity: crisp; Sweetness: medium dry; Body: light-bodied; Finish: medium; Overall: pleasant; Pale straw yellow in color. On the nose I noticed a nice sweet citrus aroma with green apples and possibly apricots. This is a crisp, semi-sweet, light bodied wine with a touch of acid. It has a pleasant finish. I am calling this is a semi-sweet wine because I usually drink a dry wine, others may call it a off-dry wine. Good wine for the value, but a little too sweet for my tastes."

88 points "Color: pale; Nose: fragrant; Aromas: citrus fruit; Acidity: lively; Sweetness: sweet; Body: medium-bodied; Finish: medium; Overall: elegant; The nose was much more powerful than the palate but both showed lime and a pleasant orange that was almost mistaken for a flower. Not a dry riesling, but not a sweet one either."
