    He said: Chilled before drinking. Clear, light wheat straw color. Ripe Apple and hints of tropical fruit and lime aromas with an ripe apple taste that’s somewhat sweet, but with body and a full mouth-feel. The finish is similar and has a very long aftertaste. Not bad Riesling and at only $6.79 it’s a good buy. OK Riesling at a very low price.

    She said: Medium grass green color, clear, thin irregular spaced sluggish legs. The aroma featured tropical fruit scents that lead to a flavor that is primarily sweet but has hints of fruitiness that last into the medium long finish. With medium body and low acidity it does not have the soda pop characteristics that I associate with many inexpensive Rieslings and I am favorably impressed by the wine in spite of the fact that I don’t usually like Rieslings at all. At $6 it is a bargain wine but only if you like sweet Riesling.
