Bah. The only German Riesling I could find in Kauai outside of a restaurant. Way out of balance; this is like an overweight prostitute...way too showy creamy and sweet honeyed on the nose, not enough acid wit to counterbalance and give birth to a conversation. This wine has the curious attribute of a phantom midpalate, like rushing down a slope from attack to finish wondering where the middle went. Ouch. I figured 2011&spat&piesporter would be a shitshow.... But have grown tired of IPAs and had no other choice. Petrol / latex aromas already at age 3? This is wonky shit. Only Chambers&Chambers or Southern bring wine out here. This is like drinking imitation Twinkies. "How could a riesling go so wrong?" Jane asks.

It's okay for under $20. Sweeter than I'd expect for a Mosel Riesling...nose is over powered by over-ripe pit fruit, but that good ol' gasoline smell is in there somewhere.

Medium high sweet, smells like honey. Just a hint of tart, mostly sugar sweet, very crisp, apples, pears, honey, flowers, with a citrus finish. Probably good as a thin dessert on its own

Blah... I was expecting dry and flavorful. I got a mouth full of sugar.

If you want a sweet wine from Germany, this is a good wine for a good price.
