Synopsis, Our Opinion: Delicious Riesling that’s an excellent value.
Producer/Winery: Weingut Eugen Müller; Forst, Germany.
Grape Variety: Riesling.
Geographic Appellation: Pfalz, Germany.
Price: $15.30 (with a 10% mixed case discount)
Purchased From: The Caviste Wine Shop; Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Paired With: Sweet potato and ham hash with onions and green pepper, flavored with sage, steamed broccoli.
Chilled before drinking. Very pale lemon/green color. Dominated by strong petroleum aroma with lesser amounts of citrus and pear and wisps of fresh cut alfalfa. Smooth, sweet, with a slight creamy mouth-feel; lemon, apricot and mineral taste with hints of nectar sucked from honeysuckle blossoms that continue through the medium length finish. Excellent paired with the sweet potatoes and ham dinner and pleasant drinking without food after the dinner. Slightly crisp with fresh acidity (more would have been better), an underlying mineral from start to finish and just enough dryness to make it refreshing. We’re not overly fond of Riesling wines and this one was like a long-haired sleeping dog…it was pleasant to pet, but didn’t have any get up and go to get excited about. Enjoyable and I don’t know what wine would have been a better pairing with this dinner, so we’ll call it delicious Riesling that’s an excellent value and we would quickly recommend it for a meal with sweet flavors.
