Rolf Binder/Veritas Riesling Eden Valley Highness 2006

Member Review by Jae B:

After drinking this, the only way I can describe this - it was like drinking the last little bit of sprite soda out of a McDonald's cup after the ice had melted leaving the remaining bit watered down. It had a weird taste and scent that I could not figure out at first (which I think someone else had noted as petrol). Then it hit me. It was the flavor of the wax coated paper cups the you get at fast food places (McDonald's, Burger King, etc...). I really wanted to like this, but I just couldn't get past the waxy flavor.

Rolf Binder Wines:
The vines in the vineyard were pruned and trellised in November (Spring), and their long shoots needed to be trained along the trellis. This was a vigorous growing time for the vines, and leading up to this vintage, we saw some of them already producing the small bunches of inflorescences (flowers) that will eventually become fruit.
