Riesling Everywhere!

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from Wines of Germany.

I’m in a Riesling state of mind…okay, well, not really, but they are among the wines I’m drawn to when the weather heats up.  Oh, who am I kidding, I’m always drawn to wine!  But really, the folks from the Wines of Germany have been sending me bi-monthlyish Riesling shipments, so I’ve been drinking a little bit more of it than normal.  Tonight I chose the 2007 Graf Hardegg Vom Schloss Riesling.  It had a real cork, clocked in at 12.5% alcohol by volume, and appears to retail for around $19.

On the nose I got lime, minerals, wet stones, kiwi, melon, and apricot.  In the mouth I found lemon, lime, melon, stone, tropical notes, white peach, and flowers.  I found the wine to be light and crisp, and extremely easy to drink.  We had this on its own before dinner the other night and it really whet our appetites.
