Following up on my intent to broaden my wine horizons and in the interest of internationalism, I’m going to be tasting 3 wines from Germany in the next few days. This is the first. You may remember that I wrote a post not too long ago about a nice red I’d tasted at a local watering hole where they have good live music, too. Anyway, things went so well with the red that I thought I’d give one of their whites a try.
Price: Not Available
Notes: It was simple, light bodied and for me light on flavor. What I tasted was lime and peach (with the fuzz on the quick finish). Dry – Sweet? This Riesling comes in at 11.5% alcohol. It wasn’t bad at all, but I just didn’t think it brought that much to the table. I almost didn’t post this review because I couldn’t find this wine at retail anywhere in my area – or even online for that matter – for this vintage. But then I thought maybe others would run into it at their local haunt/restaurant/etc., so I went ahead. I’m thinking maybe this pub doesn’t go through much Riesling and they should’ve served this a year ago. I see that Lucashof gets good reviews for their wines, so I am going to give another of their selections a try in the future.
