Pölka Dot Crisp Riesling'08, Germany

A Crisp (meaning medium-dry) Riesling from the Pfalz Region in Germany, known to be the best one for the production of Riesling!

Technical Data: 100% Riesling . Aged in Stainless Steel Tanks to preserve its freshness.

Description: Light bright gold color with green hues. Strong green apple aromas followed up by pear and lime. Refreshing medium bodied crisp wine, showing off a nice acidity and a complex palate. Flavors of white flowers, orange blossom, lime and green apple are entangled as well as a hint of caramel. Long lasting finish.

Food Pairing & Service: Very versatile wine, it can be drunk by itself or pair wonderfully spicy dishes in general. Good pairing with Asian Style dishes or Latino dishes. This wine will stand proudly against grilled fish or even poultry. Serve chilled not frozen!
