Todays Wine:  Turning Leaf Sweet Resling

YUMMY


Why did I choose this you ask?  Well, I chose it due to it’s flavor and it’s paring.  Thanksgiving is next week and this is the perfect pumpkin pie matching wine.   Light-bodied with fresh tropical and citrus tangerine notes, and hints of apple and lychee.  This wine has a very sweet taste with a nice crisp finish.  I defintnly put this in my dessert wine catergory.  However, I love to also sip on this wine by its self.  And want to know the best part of this all??  At an average cost of $5.99 a bottle, you can’t help but love it!

I don’t just think it’s good, so do others.  And to prove it, here are the awards Turning Leaf have won:
