2005 J.W. Morris Riesling
Another $4 find from Trader’s Joe. For a long time, we were big fans of cheap Rieslings but the more we try, the more our palates are becoming a bit more discriminating....I still don’t care for the expensive ones, but based on what we’ve had at tastings and restaurants, we seem to have gravitated to mid-teens German.
That being said, for $4, I’m willing to take a shot.
Stone fruit, mainly peaches on the nose.
Peaches and some grapes on the palate. Though it’s really not terribly sweet, there’s basically no acid which gives it a bland grape juice mouthfeel.
The lack of acid really ruins this one. I don’t mind simple, but I do mind flab. Even for under $5 I can’t recommend this one.
