Relax Riesling 03/30/13

relax riesling Riesling is one of the few white wines that I really like. I don’t like dry wines – so I mostly avoid whites. Hubby prefers whites so…we buy what I want most of the time, lol. This one is more for him. We tasted it when we went to a seafood restaurant during Lent and both of us liked it. When I saw someone purchasing a bottle recently, I had to get one for hubby (and me!).

This particular riesling is a sweet wine though the bottle says it’s “medium sweet.” I think I like the spicier ones the most but the sweet ones are good, too. The color is a nice golden yellow and – while its pretty sweet (which to me means it has a low alcohol content) – the legs *I think* are pretty strong. It smells pretty strongly of fruit. I’m not good enough to tell which kinds but I think I smell apples and pears.*

*The bottle says apples, peaches and a hint of citrus
