karl-earbesMy Tasting Notes

Nose – Ripe fuji apple, pear, cantaloupe and slate

Taste – Honey, mineral, touch of petrol, decent amount of balanced sweetness

Mouthfeel – round and full bodied, nice acidity creeping up toward the finish that balanced the level of residual sugar nicely

Finish – Long with sweet minerality

This was a very well put together Riesling but on it’s own it might have been a bit to sweet for me, but paired with spicy Pad Thai that we made it was excellent. The heat helped the sweetness fade and showcased the rest of the flavor profile that the wine had to offer.

Cheers!
