Wino Wednesday – J. Riehl Riesling

12 Jan

White wine? Why not!  We’re usually pretty predictable with our choices of various kinds of red wine, but this week C thought we should let our hair down and go crazy with a white.  I was pretty sure we liked Riesling, and this was the only one at the grocery store, so that made it our pick (plus I had $10, and after buying yogurt, cheese, and bread, it’s all I could afford).

 

What was it like? good.  Ok seriously, it was nice wine, I think you would call it “sweet” and in all honesty it tasted a bit like flat champagne (that’s a compliment, although it certainly didn’t sound like one did it?).  It went well with C’s home made (in a toaster oven no less!) pizza, and we’ll maybe try another wine from the Alsace region next week.
