2002 GENERATIONS Riesling Wine Details
Price: $19.00 per bottle

Description: Kari Skrip has a love affair with Riesling and feels Clover Hill has a near-perfect growing environment for the grape. The affair all began while Kari was in Australia and couldn't get enough of the dry Rieslings. After years of producing a successful semi-sweet Riesling, it was time to put Clover Hill to the test and try our hand at a dry Riesling. What resulted is Kari's new favorite wine.

The wine finishes clean and crisp with lingering citrus flavors. Bronze medal winner in the 2004 PA Wine Competition.
