Wine Wednesday :: Reinhold Haart 2007 Riesling Piesporter

It has been a while since I have loved a wine as much as I enjoyed this amazing Riesling.  For a little bit of background, Rieslings are made all over the world but depending on geography, the flavor can vary from dry and tart to honey-like and syrupy.  This particular wine was a delightful German surprise that balanced all of the above.  It was definitely a "budget" wine and I was not expecting a lot.  But suffice to say, it was totally worth it and I am going back to stock up for the summer!

What wine is it: 
Reinhold Haart 2007 Riesling Piesporter
What I ate with it: 
soppresata, aged havarti cheese, baguette, balsamic/olive oil for dipping
How much is it: 
Where to shop for it: 

It was a lovely day so we had gone for a walk this afternoon and were planning on a picnic when we got home for dinner.  Since we were warm and ready for a drink, we brought this bottle out and man oh man.  It was perfect with these foods.

The wine was delightful with the earthiness of the cheese and the spices in the soppressata.  Those flavors in the food heightened the subtle fruit and honey quality of the wine.  It was so refreshing after a warm afternoon walk too (you will definitely want to drink/serve this wine chilled).  For your summer party, this is going to be a fantastic white to choose (this would also have gone wonderfully with fish, sushi, pork, etc.).  So find yourself a bottle and your taste buds will thank you later.  And at $10 for a slightly aged white wine, how can you go wrong?!

Have a beautiful day!
