J. Bäumer Riesling
J. Bäumer Riesling 2011
Rheingau, Germany

Review: This off-dry Riesling is a surefire crowd pleaser. The slight sweetness is paired with refreshing acidity and crisp fruit flavors of lemons and tart green apples. The wine has a surprisingly long finish of lingering lemons.

Food Pairing: Traditional pairings of spicy Asian foods would be a good bet – or try it with a nice cheese platter on a picnic. Can you see it? You and your sweetie, a blanket, a beautiful sunny sky, tulips blooming along the Potomac, and a basket of cheeses, charcuterie, and wine... le sigh.

Bottom Line: Nice wine with good fruit character. A good value buy. I dig it.

Wine Geekery:
  • VINTAGE: 2011
  • PLACE: QbA Rheingau  (QbA - fancy German for quality wine from a specific region)
  • GRAPE: 100% Riesling
  • BOOZE: 9.0%
  • CELLAR: Drink now, do not hold

Where did I get it? Crystal City Wine Shop
What's the damage? Mid Priced
