    April 25, 2019 - Agree with the previous review that this is leaning towards an off-dry style. I don't find it terribly detracting in not a dissimilar way as a riesling or gewurzstraminer can be with nicely balancing acidity as here, along with a light bitterness on the back end, which gives more of a lasting impression of a dryer wine, but yeah, there's that going on here. Very light yellow to straw color. Aromas of green apple and pear, lime, wet rocks, honeysuckle, and saline. Medium (+) body, acid, and finish, with flavors of green and yellow apple, pear, lemon, lime, and lingering minerality. I'm enjoying it. Paired well with chicken and broccoli Alfredo stuffed shells, and would work with all manner of seafood, sushi, raw bar, poultry, lighter fare, and aperitif sipping in the sun.
