Fruity & Smooth
Sweet, yet still on the light side.
Love this wine, I first had it as part of a lecture. Needless to say I was very surprised to learn it retailed way under $20. Gorgeous bouquet, delicious. It's a steal.
Again, a riesling that is being judged next to a god--Eroica. Solid flavors, but not to the depth of other rieslings. Good, but not as good... :)
Light & Crisp
The Wine...Thomas Penfolds Hyland Riesling 2008...The scene...Enjoying a relaxing afternoon in the yard with the wife and having a glass of wine. A bit warm outside so the wine was nice instead of a beer but didn't like the bitter aftertaste that I experienced as I had another glass. Not a bad tasting wine but don't think I would order another Riesling like this one.
