I loved this wine. I consistently go to barefoot as a 'grocery store wine' and when I saw they had a Riesling I tried it and was very pleasantly surprise! This is now my favorite of Barefoot's wines and one of my favorite wines under 10$ .
Exactly the sweet treat I was looking for! Great entry wine for a dumbass like me. This site is terrible, but I need a way to keep track of my wines. You have no idea what you are rating on here! 5,000 entries for the same wine, but no one is running this crap, so it doesn't seem to matter.
Maybe a sweet treat after work tonight.
great beginner wine. Love it!
This goes into the mouth sweet, crisp, and bright. It almost tastes like drinking green apples. There is a very nice balance of sweet and sour with perhaps a tiny hint of vanilla. It was great with spicy food. I didn't taste the advertised "tropical citrus fruits," "luscious peach," or "hints of orange blossom," but this is probably due to my lack of experience more than anything. After a couple tastes, I was reminded of why Barefoot is consistently my favorite overall winery. This wine is great through and through and very easy to drink.
I bought this bottle because I was in the mood for something refreshing. Be careful what you wish for, that's exactly what I got. Barefoots riesling is not a wine for conisuers as the bottle is a screw top. The boquet of green apple & peach were dominant. This wine had maybe 3 visable legs on the whole glass. However, to someone who drinks wine as commonly as I do, this wouldn't be a bad choice to serve to inexperienced guests as a refreshment on a hot day, It's better than water.
An excellent bottle of wine for the price. Perhaps I'm ridiculous but when it comes to Rieslings, my indulgence is just a hint of apple juice. To many a wine drinker this may be horribly taboo but for a $6.99 bottle of wine, I find my choices and enjoyment of this little indulgement to be utterly and completely inarguable.
External Reviews for Barefoot Riesling Premier
Kudos to Gallo for letting people know this wine is sweet. That avoids a lot of confusion. The honey, tangerine and peach flavors are balanced with lots of zesty acidity. Delightful, and a great bargain.
Barefoot Riesling is tropical and juicy and has peach and jasmine aromas that delight before the first sip. Juicy nectarine and pear flavors complement the lingering sweet citrus and honey finish. Zesty! Serve chilled! Barefoot Riesling pairs well with fresh fruits, veggies and cheese. Serve with sushi, teriyaki and tempura dishes. Enjoy with spicy chicken tacos and green sauce enchiladas. Enjoy with friends!
Food Pairings for Barefoot Riesling Premier
Hits all the right fruit-filled notes with perfect pitch. A delicate orange blossom aroma bounces off juicy apple and tangy lemon flavors for a slightly sweet finale
