Review a new wine!
  2006 - Selbach Riesling Kabinett Piesporter Michelsberg
 May 24, 2008

1 star 1 star 1 star

 

I can appreciate a good reisling, and would be happy if this wine were offered.  Nice balance of sweetness and acidity, the kabinett ripeness means this can be paired with food.  However, it is nothing exciting.  Save your money and buy domestic and rest assured the qulaity is similar, or if you want to be "wow"ed spend some extra money.

  2006 - d'Arenberg The Stump Jump Riesling / Marsanne
 May 24, 2008

1 star 1 star 1 star

 

Served May 2008 at a wine tasting for 30+ people.  Not too many second takers, but overall well-received.  This is a blend of (dry) reisling, sauv. blanc, marsanne and roussane.  The last two grapes give it an interesting nose that is truly hard to describe, maybe a little petrol? 

Overall, a light white that has much more going on than pinot grigio to make things interesting.  It lacks the stone fruit of reisling, and the gooseberry of the sauv blanc.  If pairing with food, keep it simple!  Shellfish, maybe some cream sauces.
