2003 Blue Nun Riesling
It was on sale and it's called Blue Nun...need I explain more? Apparently, this was a very famous wine producer back in the 1970s.
Lots of peaches in this one. On both the nose and palate. It's sweet. Sweet isn't a bad thing if there's enough acid to balance it out and this doesn't even come close. The finish brings orange zest, pineapple, and tropical fruit to mind.
It's certainly drinkable. I like cheap Rieslings, but this one tastes just a bit too cheap for my liking. If you think White Zinfandel is good wine, this is probably a good stepping stone, but I wouldn't give it much more than that.
