Blue Label

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from the PR folks for Wines of Germany in order to participate in the Wines of Germany Twitter Taste Live.

As I did yesterday, I have another Riesling for you today.  And another great bargain Riesling that would be elegant for any Thanksgiving dinner table.  Our second bottle for the evening was the 2007 S.S. Prüm Blue Label Riesling Kabinett. It had a screw cap closure, retails for about $19, and clocked in at 11% alcohol by volume.

On the nose I found lemon drops, lime zest, smoke, a touch of petrol that went away as soon as I smelled it, stones, stone fruit, sourdough bread, and pineapple.  This just had a fantastic nose that I wanted to keep sniffing, but alas, I had to move on so as not to hold up the Twitter Taste Live!  In the mouth I got green apple, citrus, lemon zest, lemon curd, apricots, stone fruit, and a touch of wet stones from tubing down a river.  Overall, I found the wine to be extremely dry and to have great acidity running through.
