If someone asked me to describe this wine, the first thoughts that come into my head would be refreshingly vibrant, slightly sweet , floral and pretty, (bit girly , I know) but that just about sums this wine up.
The bottle in question is the Wine Society’s entry level Saar Riesling 2012. Described as Medium /off dry which I would disagree with, for me it was more like medium sweet although the sweetness wasn’t cloying or syrupy but surprisingly fresh and cleansed the palate beautifully.
Initially not too much aroma wise but the bottle was very cold, as the wine warmed up in the glass there was a hint of honey, pears and something flowery (don’t ask me to pin down the flower).
Taste – as I said earlier this was quite sweet with a medium finish. There was a little bit of toffee apple about it, honey lockets but with tingly acidity.
Paired it with Roast Pork and it complemented the dinner perfectly.
Alcohol level of 9.5% meant the bottle could be finished without reaching for the parecetamol.
Entry level it may be but overall it was very enjoyable.
