Day 61-2007 Piesporter Michelsberg Riesling-Auslese-Winestyles for $14.99
This wine was a recommendation from the owner of Winestyles for a semi-sweet wine. We opened this wine at Easter because one of our guests stated that he liked Rieslings. This wine is very crisp and sweet with some acidity but, not so much that a person gets heartburn. It has citrus flavors with some orange and grapefruit overtones. Auslese is sweeter than the spatlese in terms of German wines with the Kabinet being the driest of the three wines. This wine is very versatile and could be paired with almost any dish. I really like this wine, as it has some sweetness, without sweetness being its overwhelming quality. This is a great summer wine and a great recommendation from Mark.
