Pierre Sparr Riesling 2008
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Pale yellow with a tinge of green. Mild aromas- slightly floral and green apple. The degree of sweetness is listed on the back-label. Rated 1 of 9 (9 being the sweetest). Dry, with tastes of lemon and minerals. Some nice acidity on the finish. Good value for the price. I paid $10.95.
Fairly restrained aromatics with crisp ripe apple notes dominating. Nice firm backbone of acidity lingers on the palate.
External Reviews for Pierre Sparr Riesling
Bright apricot and green apple fruit is held in check by an austere, citrusy acidity, keeping the flavors vivid and bright.
The 2001 Riesling (yellow label) reveals spiced apples and minerals in its aromatics. Dry, broad, and light-bodied, this is a simple, pure, mineral and tea-dominated offering for drinking over the next 3-4 years.
Broad strokes of almond and apple mark this straightforward, light- to medium-bodied white, picking up a hint of grapefruit peel on the finish. Drink now through 2001.
