This wine is the last of the bunch from a Sunday run to find alcohol, for research purposes only. It was a fitting wine to finish up on, offering a category we have yet to review on.
The smell of this wine is of apples and apricots, reminding me of spring. Very bright and fresh to the nose. Clear and crips apple flavors, with hints of cinnamon. The finish is quick, leaving bits of fruit as it fades away. Not overly sweet, well rounded.
I’ve had some better Rieslings, but can’t complain. This wine is very interesting.
Quick and Dirty:
I’d like to explore this Riesling some more, it has me intrigued.
