Blue Nun Riesling 2009
The Riesling grape is considered by many to be the finest of German grape varieties, and BLUE NUN’s Riesling uses them to superb effect. It’s fragrant, fruity, crisp and lively. Good with white meats and fish. Once again, versatile enough to go with most things. And because it’s a very light, refreshing wine, you can enjoy it as an apéritif. Or drink it anytime you like.
External Reviews for Blue Nun Riesling
The recent quality improvements at this producer are praiseworthy. There's a brief whiff of sulfur in this wine, but it gives way to lots of fresh, apple-scented fruit. It's light to medium in body and much less sweet than it used to be, picking up hints of red berries on the finish.
This ainrsquo;t your fatherrsquo;s Blue Nun. This is recognizably a Riesling, boasting modest green apple and pear flavors and a close-to-dry finish. A quantum leap beyond what Blue Nun used to be back in the 1970s and rsquo;80s.
