Appearance: straw yellow
Aroma: green apple, pineapple, lime, and elderflower
Palate: sweetness of off-dry character with flavour of lime, orange, apple, and mild spiciness. soft note of acidity. medium creamy structure on body. stony mineral is also there.

This off-dry style riesling shows more like it is of Kabinett wine with bright and dynamic personality. I do like the raciness and freshness of this Dragonstone Riesling. It is also priced with reasonableness. Grab it, store it, and enjoy until the end of this decade. But make sure the temperature is not too cool when drinking for the aroma to reveal. Cheers!!!!!
