2015 Loved by Lu Riesling

GOLD MEDAL 2017 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition

Sue-Ann’s Mentor and Grandmother, Lula Staff, would say “I love your Riesling”.  A light-hearted, semi-dry wine with vibrant acidity, just like her.  Enjoy with appetizers, salads, light meals or on its own, like she did.

Tasting Notes:
Very lifted tropical aromatics of passion fruit, guava and mango pair beautifully with bright ripe sun-kissed orange and tangerine notes.  The fresh, semi-dry palate is balanced and equally fruit driven with accompanying key lime pie and subtle minerality.  Mouth watering, zippy and alive.  The finish is dry with minerality shinning through. Fabulous when paired with appetizers, chicken, poultry, seafood, fish, mild cheese, or on its own.  Sensational with Thai cuisine.
