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.
