94 • Schade Creek 2013 "Creme de la Creme Blanc", Iowa $12. Best Buy.
Pale platinum straw color. Floral aromas suggest pears in sauce, peaches in cream, and banana blossoms with a silky, fruity light-to-medium body and a tangy lime sorbet finish. Very refreshing and satisfying. (tasted on Apr-14-2014)
89 • August Hill Winery NV "Ravat 51", Illinois $20.
Pale platinum straw color. Aromas of grapes on the vine, orange pith, and almond nougat with a dryish light-to-medium body and a tart lemon ice and earth finish with chewy fruit tannins. A dry, tightly-wound, Germanic-styled wine reminiscent of sylvaner that will excel at the table with seafood. (tasted on Apr-14-2014)
