Food Pairings for Blue Nun White
Sweet and light
not terribly bad good quality wine but nothing special that I have experienced from some german rieslings . good choice for everyday drinking
It's not the most magical thing I've ever tasted, but it wins extra points for being such a good deal.
You know, I'm many things but a wine snob, I am not. So when I saw a bottle of Blue Nun Qualitatswein sitting there in my local HEB for $4, I swiped it up. A flashback to Thanksgivings of my childhood when my Aunt and Uncle came bringing the familiar blue bottle. I always wanted my own glass but was only allowed sips. It's pretty much what I remember, smooth, simple, sweet and a twinge dry. It's probably at best a good beginner's wine but I still buy it if only for the warm fuzzies I get from drinking an inexpensive, tasty wine my parents drank when they were my age.
External Reviews for Blue Nun White
Wine Tasting NotesAn easy-to-drink, refreshing white wine that may be consumed on its own or matched with seafood, white meats and spicy dishes, Blue Nun's color is of pale straw. Its nose is quite subdued and gently floral. Refreshing grape and green apple flavors with hints of nectarines define its taste profile, with sufficient acidity providing well balanced structure. It is refreshing and crisp with a soft yet persistent finish.
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.
