Food Pairings for Rolf Binder/Veritas Riesling Eden Valley Highness
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.
"The 2011 Highness Riesling offers a good intensity of vibrant citrus aromas - fresh lime juice and lemon peel - over hints of orange blossom and crushed stones. Light bodied and dry on the palate, it gives a great concentration of lemon and grapefruit flavors marked by very crisp acidity, finishing long and zesty." – Wine Advocate
