Deinhard 2007 Green Label Riesling (Germany)

Sunday afternoon ... lazy and rainy ... seems like the perfect time to pull out a bottle of Riesling. So I reached for something I had just put into the fridge the other day while rearranging my wine cellar. I have to say this wine was not very complex, in any sense of the word; a basic easy drinking Riesling with a sugar code that hovered between 4 and 5. Lemon-lime, peach, apple with a sweet taste that was broken up by good acidity ... and all ending with a medium length finish. Lazy Sunday afternoon - this seemed like a good wine to while away an hour or so.

YES A VERY BASIC WINE...BUT GOOD ENOUGH FOR A BEGINNER!
I STARTED OUT AT AN EARLY AGE WITH GREEN LABEL
MY PALATE DEVELOPED VERY QUICKLY...THE GENES OF THE RUFFINO WINE FAMILY FROM TUSCANY IN ITALY ARE RUNNING STRONG IN ME! I CAME FROM THEM MATERNALLY.SOON I DEMANDED MORE COMPLEXITY AND SHELVED GREEN LABEL!
WOULD LIKE TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE KENDALL JACKSON WINES IN MY NEXT BLOG.
HAVE YOU HAD ANY?
MY MAIN INTERESTS IS IN FRANCE ESPECIALLY BORDEAUX.
I ENJOY CLOS DU TART and BONNES MARRES.LOVE THE COTE D'OR >>>MOREY SAINT DENIS AND CHAMBOLLE.

I HAVE ENJOYED CANADIAN ICE WINES AS WELL.
