Alsace Riesling on Snooth

  • Just a quick update on tonight's activities.  I managed to squeeze in a ride on my Harley Fatboy this afternoon, after spending time with Sandra's parents walking around a grocery store.  Bob (Sandra's father) had some fun trying on a St. Patrick's Day hat, and I got a picture of him.  We had the grand kids again starting at 6:30 PM, and just dr...

  • Red, it's context:  Pinot is supposed to deliver a certain kind of flavor, aroma, mouthfeel, and, for me, none of that is there with Meiomi.  I wouldn't bash it if I didn't try it.  (I didn't really bash it so much, either, just said it wasn't much like PN to me and wasn't very enjoyable.)  Big commercial wines:  Well, define that.  A lot of goo...

  • Great story, JD!VV, here's how it usually works, as people who have been over have observed:  I keep about 24-36 bottles of daily drinkers in a wine tower I bought at World Market a bunch of years ago.  It was built for 24 bottles but I tricked it out for another dozen, including fatter bottles. That's about a month's supply of mostly $10-20 stu... Read More

  • I'll be in Germany next week, and once I arrive I plan to drag my jet-lagged self to Alsace, France to tour a few wineries there (a couple hours from Frankfurt). BUT- I'm not really into white wines as much as reds, though I don't mind Gewurtzraminer and Dry Riesling.But I am thinking of taking a day off toward the end of the week. I can get pre... Read More

  • Mark, they fell from use as the CA wine industry (and then elsewhere in the States) fell into lust with the form of branding wines by their varietal. Riesling was used initially more as a style, like Burgundy, Chablis, Champagne, etc. What earlier Englishpersons would've called 'Hock' (in the era of 'Claret' for Bordeaux).Plenty of Sylvaner grow...

  • Gina, I am going to second the recommendation that you open these up and try them.  It should be fun.  If you find that you don't like them, then there is no great loss.I am now going to hijack your conversation.I have not seen any mention of Grey Riesling in many years.  Also, years ago, I recall seeing California bottlings labeled Johannisberg...

  • Anybody whose "best ever" wine is Cakebread, gets my immediate respect.  Welcome to the Snooth Forum, ADST.I'm still not sure what you kind of help you are requesting.  Are you looking for wines that both you and your husband will enjoy?  In all honesty, it sounds like that might be difficult.  You like "heavy reds," and he likes "semi-sweet to ...

  • Following Mark's lead from last night and baked some cajun spiced ... ... ... Popped an inexpensive Alsace riesling to go with. The fish was good, the riesling not so good.  Very light nose of apricot and a touch of lemon/lime. The palate is more lemon pith, apricot, a touch of ginger and a slight bit of metallic tinge. The acidity is a bit r... Read More

  • Beblenheim Heimberger Vin d'Alsace Riesling 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Fair Alsace Riesling. Very light nose of apricot and a touch of lemon/lime. The palate is more lemon pith, apricot, a touch of ginger and a slight bit of metallic tinge. The acidity is a bit restrained for an Alsace and the finish is medium short. Read More

  • Not criticizing. Just saying that reading old world labels is not nearly as clear cut and dry as reading new world labels.Sorry, my bad. I completely misinterpreted your original post. I then started another lengthy epistle on some of your other statements, but then realized that I was getting wrapped around the axle regarding some silly things....
