Pölka Dot Pink Riesling'08, Germany

A sweet 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. Delightful and refreshing wine showing off blossom and stone fruits aromas. On the palate, lots of pear at first, then there is an explosion of flavors well mingled together tangerine, apricot and orange blossom finishing by a hint of honeysuckle and white flowers. This wine is medium sweet, have a nice acidity and is long lasting.

Food Pairing & Service: Very versatile wine, it can be drunk by itself or pair wonderfully spicy dishes in general. I tried it with Asian food and it was a keeper! Any dish served with saffron rice will do too. Serve chilled not frozen!

Score: 8/10. Great find, stack it up for the year around!

Ageing Potential: Up to 3- 4years.

Price as seen on DC shelf: $14.99
