2010 Arcturos Riesling

Flavor and Aroma:
This wine presents classic Riesling aromas of delicate white flowers and stone fruit. Ripe flavors of tangerine, peach and apple follow on the palate.

Drink now or within the next five years.

Thoughts for Food:
This wine is very dynamic with foods and often complements any table. We recommend pairing it with grilled fish, medium spiced curry dishes, and sushi or other Asian inspired meals.

Wine Makers Comments:
This is a lovely medium dry riesling. Our winemaking philosophy with this grape is to enhance the pretty fruit in the variety and the minerality of the soils in which it is grown.
