2004 Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Riesling Qualitatswein
Yep, that’s right....that’s the bottle. Awesome, no? Every so often I get suckered in by fancy packaging and this is one of them. $10 at World Market and the bottle is 500 ml (versus your typical 750 ml bottle).
I get green apples on the nose
There’s a bit of sweetness in this one, but there’s enough acid to balance–exactly what I like. Green apples, honey, and pears on the palate. The finish is a big punch of Granny Smith apples and it lingers for a quite a while.
Cheap Rieslings out of Germany are pretty much right up my alley and this fits the bill nicely.
