Riesling like Sunday Morning

Barefoot Riesling

Alcohol Content: 11.5%

Flavor: With a strong, crisp but sweet start, this wine was a pleasant surprise! Normally Barefoot is my go-to, but with the past couple posts, I’ve started to second guess myself. Nonetheless, this bottle had me right back on track with bursts of green apples and hints of peach and vanilla, that ended with the perfect sweet and sour combination. Especially if you are just starting out with wine, this is a perfect white to get you going!

Fisheye Riesling

Alcohol Content: 12.5%

Flavor: What I loved so much about this particular wine was it’s dominant pineapple and lemon flavors, especially being the citrus fruit lover that I am, this wine did more than provide for me. This light to medium bodied wine finishes light and sweet, seriously forcing you to take another sip. Definitely a perfect selection for a summer’s night.

Sutter Home Riesling

Alcohol Content: 11.5%

Flavor: This was one of the less sweet ones out of the bunch, and honestly probably the one with the most acidity. Don’t get me wrong, the hints of melon, peach, and other topical fruit flavors are welcoming. But, the sour finish just sealed the deal for me to leave it on the shelf next time.

Yellow Tail Riesling

Alcohol Content: 12.5%

Flavor: Yellow tail must have gotten word regarding the infamous flat flavor of their Riesling, because I don’t think I’ve ever had a bottle of wine that had more bubbles, unless of course it was champagne. Fortunately, I enjoyed this one a lot more than I have in past experiences. Though still not my favorite, I really loved the orange bursts it introduced, as well as the light, crispness this wine embodies; a great way to change things up from different Rieslings. Also a little disappointed in the dryness of this one, definitely not as sweet as a Riesling should be, in my opinion.

Cavit Riesling

Alcohol Content: 11.6%

Flavor: If you like sweet, particularly a Moscato sweet, then you will fall for this wine, for sure. Heavy pear, apricot, and peach flavors make this a certainly easy to drink wine. Definitely on the lighter side, with an almost pale green color; definitely a step up from their Pinot Grigio!
