Schneider Riesling Spatlese '04, Rheinhessen, Germany

Great semi-sweet food friendly white wine!

Technical Data: 100% Riesling, aged 6 months in stainless steel tanks. Appellation Niersteiner Hipping.

Description: Bright light gold color. Nice aromatic entrance with notes of peaches and nutmeg. On the palate, very present tropical fruits flavors combined with spices and honeysuckle undertones. Semi-sweet medium-bodied wine but enough acidity to have an excellent balance.

Food Pairing & Service: Ideally suited to rich food like lobster and clams but also to dessert such as fresh berries or pies with tropical fruits. Could also be enjoyed by itself.

Score: 9/10

Suggested Retail Price: $14.99

Strongly recommended for the coming Holiday's Season
