Domäne Wachau 2002 "Terrassen" Wachau Riesling Federspiel ($11.99)
This wine from Freie Weingärtner shows a clear, light brass color. Characteristic aromas of apple and pine add a distinct, minerally touch of Riesling "petrol." Mouth-filling flavors follow the nose, fresh and clean; steely acidity wraps it all up in a long finish. US Importer: Vin Divino Ltd., Chicago. (May 24, 2006)

FOOD MATCH: A versatile food wine with lighter meats, seafood or a range of vegetarian dishes. It was fine with alder-smoked salmon accompanied by wasabi-laced mashed potatoes.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
