So here is my take on the `04 Dr L tasting saga!! This has to be the third bottle tasted I think and was opened for some ladies who kindly helped me with a butterfly count in the local fens yesterday afternoon. So some varied comments but all relevant none-the-less.
WTN: `04 Dr L Riesling, M-S-R.
Low alcohol, screwcap. Served nicely chilled as can be fat if served too warm.
Colour. Pale straw w. greenish hints.
Nose. We had comments ranging from apple to citrus, minerals, lemon, pears and floral, hint of diesel (I asked them to look for this).
Palate. We all agreed this was a very nice wine and a good intro to Germany. With 33 degrees, it was a nice quaff!!! I found it crisp and refreshing, nice tartness and a lingering aftertaste. Sure its not elegant, but good in its own right. Some honeyed tones here amidst apple and melon. Very clean and tangy, more medium bodied than the lighter `05.
Sam, we looked for bacon but no luck!!
So there we are forumites. The tasters were not pros but really enjoyed the wine. Few will seek out for sure, also the Cedar Creek Pinot Gris which we opened at the same time. Yup, they liked that too.
