Hello, I'm a wine lover and budding geek, with a wife and two littles. Caught the tri bug; the training helps offset my wine and ice cream habit.

Top 10 Value Rieslings

3. Chateau Grand Traverse Riesling Old Mission Peninsula Semi-Dry (2011)

« Prev Next » 3 of 10

Review from original list creator: "Well this is a different bird. Smells of petrol and honey with some earthy dried fruit aromas and a strong floral/gardenia top note. A little sweet on entry, but the acid quickly snaps this back to dryness. There's a rich, almost stemmy quality to the fruit here, with more of a treacle than honey flavor on the palate accenting the lime zest and slight white cherry-toned fruit. The finish is savory and fairly long, with a touch of appealing pepperiness. This is pretty dry for "semi-dry," and the acid/sweetness balance is just about where I like it. The relatively unusual flavor profile will keep this from enjoying a wider audience, but I do like the savory complexity here. 88pts" by 89065Gregory Dal Piaz
