Relax 'Schmitt Sohne' Riesling Qualitatswein 2017

Member Review by Aegelis:

Having been impressed with the regular Relax riesling and amiable to the pink, I thought I'd give this a go. The description says dark cherry, yes there is perhaps a hint there, and plum but I couldn't seem to find it present. On the light-side of flavour depths, there is a slightly dry, slightly tart, and crisp taste that will probably have others remark, "this is nice" but for me, not a lot of the luscious and opulent presence that I personally enjoy most. Give it a try, it might be your thing if this description sounds your style, but I'm seeking something a little more robust.

    Light, sweet and charmingly pleasant, Relax offers as it name suggests in a most hospitable way. Notes are floral without being overpowering, just barely noticeable while being refreshing. As my favourite Riesling so far, I'd definitely recommend pairing with a fruity, vanilla, and/or creamy dessert if not enjoyed by itself.

    Medium body, light sweetness, very simple. Pleasant. Sugar water. Very light acidity. Boring.

    This is an inexpensive, widely available, and consistent riesling. A light finish with fruity notes... not too sweet but sweet enough for those looking for a delicious white. Pairs well with fish, desserts, and poultry.

    Nice up-front citrus with sweetness on the back of the tasting. Tart lingering finish left me wanting another taste. Great everyday wine at an affordable price.

    This fine Riesling wine offers an extraordinary premium wine quality. With forward fruit and floral aromas of apples and peaches with just a hint of citrus, the wine's natural acidity gives it a perfect balance that is refreshingly crisp and leaves your mouth watering.

    Shows plenty of honeyed notes to the floral, peach and applesauce flavors. Tropical accents show on the finish. Drink now. 400,000 cases made.

    Pine frond and pollen notes accent brisk lemon and pear in this lithe off-dry Riesling. The palate bristles with acidity, but yellow cherry and peach flavors shine through sweetly on the finish.

    Slightly dry with an enticing fruity bouquet, it shows intense flavors of apples and peaches with a hint of citrus. Serve chilled.

    The taste of this light-bodied German Riesling consists primarily of pears and apple. It’s a medium sweet wine with very smooth, low acidity. A wonderful wine for everyday drinking and relaxing. Pair with General Tso’s Chicken, barbecued pork or cheddar cheese.
