Thelema Riesling 2011
Made in a German style, with a fragrant, spicy nose. This wine is slightly sweeter than normal, with lower alcohol (12.44%), and will develop complexity with cellaring.
Delicious now but will develop well over the next 10 more years
An excellent aperitif. Also with salads, chicken and mildly spicy dishes.
Unwooded German-style Riesling with a fragrant spicy nose and delicately balanced sweetness and acidity.
