2006 Casa Lapostolle Sauvignon Blanc

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

Pale gold appearance. Interesting nose: a big mix of citrus and fruit, from grapefruit to apple and everything between. Medium body with good acidity; a strong grapefruit quality. I’ve been drinking more of this varietal but find this unusual, in a good way. Casa Lapostolle.

2004 Deidesheimer Paradiesgarten Riesling Kabinette Pfalz

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Clear lemon-gold appearance. Nose is classic Riesling stone fruit with citrus and a hint of floral quality. On the palate, a real acidic punch nicely accenting the sweetness, which is a bit beyond off-dry. Nice body with apricot-honey and petrol notes. Very good; recommended. Bassermann-Jordan.

2005 Washington Hills Riesling

Saturday, November 1st, 2008

Clear, light gold appearance. Medium sweet nose, apricot-honey with a hint of petrol. Quite sweet and light on the palate, with low acidity; typical honey and stone fruit notes. Quite good, especially for the price, $20 at Kits Wine. It seems that this geographic area (Okanagan, Washington State) has a lot of potential in this varietal. See Washington Hills.
