External Reviews for Lingenfelder Riesling Bird Label
Lingenfelderrsquo;s bird-label Riesling reminds one how close the Pfalz is to Alsace, with a gentle breadth of dry fruit built on a mountain of minerality. This vintage feels drier than usual, but itrsquo;s still the sort of wine that would quickly disappear at dinner parties.
Tasted immediately prior to bottling, the 2007 Bird label Riesling was highly aromatic, boasting hints of lime, apple, peach and dried spices. Itrsquo;s on the sweet, ripe side with more than 20g/l residual sugar, but admirably balanced by sharp acids. Delicious now, but should last through 2015.
Rainer Lingenfelder makes his Bird Label Riesling by blending grapes from his own estate with top quality purchased fruit. The resulting wine is a semi-dry Riesling with a very subtle peach flavor, complex mineral notes and balanced with mild acidity. You will like it because it is a high quality, food-friendly wine. But you will love it because, in the words of importer Terry Thiese: ldquo;Itrsquo;s CHEEP CHEEP CHEEP!rdquo;
There isnrsquo;t another Riesling on the market within miles of this quality at this price.
A semi-dry Riesling with a very subtle peach flavor and complex mineral notes, balanced with mild acidity. A high quality, food-friendly wine.
