RIESLING AS IT SHOULD BE
Posted Jun 16, 2020[Verified]

"A great example of a traditional Mosel riesling. No trocken grapefruit here. A little frizante says keep it for a few years,but I'm pushing 75. No way. I'm enjoying the fruity ripe pear taste and Tropicana Rose aroma now! Enjoy now or later. 5 out of 5 apples. Apple Pie Bill"

"I can not say it better than Mr. Parker. Amancaya is a well grown and well made wine. Buy a case."

"This 2015 vintage needs time to mature to its full potential. Give it a year, at least. It could be fuller bodied, Right now 3/5 apples. Based on what it could be... 4/5 apples. Apple Pie Bill"
