My husband is the Riesling drinker and his go to is Fetzer.
He loves this wine and can really tell the difference in body and flavors.
I'm a Chardonnay Gal, but I got to tell you this wine is not bad and not too sweet.
Hint of Honey
I got a hint of honey and some peach on first taste. It isn't sweet, but as Cam says it is "off dry". Good with spicy food, although I enjoyed it on its own as well.
Not a Fan
While I enjoyed the hint of green apple, I found this Riesling to be overly sweet and a bit bland. I will not be ordering this one again.
My new favorite white
This is an excellent, flavorful riesling. It's just sweet enough and goes well with meals or by itself. It quickly became my go-to white wine. I've ordered three cases so far!
Didn't notice that this was an "off-dry" Riesling. So, wasn't thinking I would like this. But, overall, the sweetness isn't over the top and has a light touch (as opposed to syrupy). The best part of this wine for me was the finish. Nicely acidic which helps cut the sweetness and leaves me with a refreshing finish.
Rieslings are my favorite whites, and Washington is one of my favorite sources for New World rieslings. This one doesn't disappoint, with a flowery petrol nose and a burst of floral, apple, and stone fruit flavors. I like to pair these with spicy Indian or Thai dishes.
Easy drinking. Not sweet at all. Well for me that is. Family enjoyed it.
Another easy drinking light green apple wine. Good by itself or paired with a light fresh fish. Smooth on the palette and bright flavors.
Worth a repeat
We probably need to experiment more with appropriate food pairings. We haven't tried a Riesling in a long time (we drink mostly dry wines) and found it to be a little sweeter than we anticipated. We won't give up on it and will try again.
This is a delicious Riesling with a wonderful nose (be sure to take it in and enjoy it) and a not-too-sweet flavor palate that includes apple, pear, and lemon. You will enjoy this one and it's a great value!
