I always love a sweet Riesling. This one is cheap, but still very good. Not cloyingly sweet, and has a nice acidic punch. Tart green apples, honey, and pear. Great for dessert.

Definite value for the price, a crisp bite with a sweet fruity flavor. Finishes clean and light.

Sweet but not too sweet. Dangerously drinkable. Great with smoked mussels. Our first wine in the yard. 7.47 at Total Wines.

I like this Riesling. It has a bright acidity and the shot of CO2 really helps. Very good with fried chicken.

Nice sweet treat for dessert tonight. Crisp, elegant, slight tartness.

I found this wine at Walmart on sale, otherwise it would have been over my "let's give it a try" limit. It looked fancy in its tall skinny bottle and had a nice slider on the back showing it was on the up side of medium-sweet. Which I greatly approve of for us ignorant winos. That first glass however had me on the fence.
When you first drink it there is a nice fresh, sweet fruit flavor. I was liking it. Then you swallow and this odd aftertaste hits you. The more I drank, the more it hit me till I was grimacing at the end of the glass. I am told this is a thing with riesling.... Okay... Mark them off my list because this bottle is still in my fridge two bottles of wine later. Not my thing.
