Happy Hour: Wolf Blass Riesling


I'm not exactly sure why, but I usually avoid Rieslings when I'm shopping for white wine. I can never remember if it's pronounced re or ree, and worry that each bottle is going to be sickeningly sweet. However all of these fears and insecurities were blown out the door when I tried Wolf Blass's 2006 Yellow Label Riesling. Produced in Southern Australia, this wine is beautifully crisp and very citrusy. I shared it with the girls in the office and we were all wonderfully surprised and appreciative. It's a dry Riesling that will pair wonderfully with spicy seafood, raw shellfish, or a light pasta. With its affordable price (under $12) this bargain wine is one you will definitely want to try.

I love Reisling! There's one I had during a wine tasting at Temecula that was absolutely delish but I was too drunk to remember which winery sold it... I also like a good Rose...I don't know how to make the e have a little thing over it...lol

I want to say I had a bottle of the gold label Wolf Blass riesling on my honeymoon cruise but I don't remember the exact brand. I'm a fan of rieslings but, like Yum, I'm not too keen on the overly sweet flavors. If I wanted a dessert wine, I'd get one! There's a particular German brand my husband usually buys that is perfect but I might have to give this a try, as it's cheaper and most likely easier to find!

I love wine, but I am not usually a Riesling drinker. Problem is, my husband only will touch wine if it's sweet (much to my chagrin), but lately I've been getting used to it. Gotta check this one out!
