Hehe - two of my favorite German things! Honeysuckle, sweet lemon rind, candied lemon peel, slate, and pears on the nose. Sweet lemons, pears, and Golden Delicious apples on the palate with mouthwatering acidity.
It’s a lovely day for an off-dry German Riesling! Lemon, apple, pear, stone, honeysuckle, and white and yellow florals on the nose. Off-dry on the palate like a sweet pear dessert. Nice lemon finish. Slate mid-palate. Simple, but a pretty classic read on a German Riesling. Great for the price - it’s hard to find inexpensive German Rieslings!
Riesling, in my view, works well as both a spring and fall grape. In the spring, I find myself reaching for the dry version for some refreshment, whereas in the fall, I might go for the more luscious, fruit-forward version. Dry Riesling provides that crisp, food friendly refreshment you want when you can finally open the windows and let some air inside.
I know we have passed Riesling “season,” but in the cold months I occasionally like to pull out a dry, zippy, fruity white wine such as Dry Riesling and observe how it invigorates my palate at dinner. This feeling of being reawakened to fresh fruit flavor is one of the many things I love about white wine.
