Hello everyone! Welcome back to another Wine Wednesday! I am totally in love with this wine that I am sharing with you today and it is a great summer wine that will not break your budget!
Today, I have a wine that is crisp, clean, and extremely refreshing for the warmer weather that most of us are enjoying! J.L. Wolf Wachenheimer Belz Riesling is fantastic!
I think I may have found one of my new favorite wineries for white wines. J.L. Wolf makes several fantastic wines. I have had their 2009 Wachenheimer Riesling also - with the same great experience!
The hubby and I opened this bottle last night for a little late night relaxation (the baby is teething so life has been more than a little hectic). While we didn't have a full meal with this, it isn't hard to imagine having this wine with something beautifully fried. =P (Maybe these pig ears that I talk about over in this post.)
When you smell it, the wine smells like apple pie before you bake it. There is a spicy, tart, scent to it. When you take a sip, that green apple taste is predominant with some undercurrents of white pepper or the bite that you get when you eat arugula. (No, the wine does not taste like arugula but there is that almost bitter taste that you get when bitting into a leaf.)
All in all, I have had two different rieslings from this maker and love them both. You can find bottles for anywhere from $10 - $30 depending on the year and vineyard it is sourced from.
Check it out! I think you will like it!
Have a beautiful day and get a bottle of wine to drink! =)
