March / April Wine Tastings

Lucky Duck Riesling / Rivaner – From Germany with 10% alcohol that we rated a 7.4 because of its citrus, melon dry taste.  Even as dry as it was, it did have a cleansing light flavor with a clear ending.  Definitely not as sweet as many Rieslings we have tasted, probably due to the blend of Rivaner.  A taste like no other that would pair well with a Cajun Spiced Pork Loin Roast or any spicy, light meat that we would recommend but we would not purchase it again. 

Gallo Family Apple Caramel Holiday Blend White – A limited edition white wine to compliment the holiday season that we rated an 8.7 with a 9% alcohol had a delightfully surprising sweet green apple flavor with just a hint of caramel.  Very light and fresh taste that would be wonderful for an after dinner taste or on a warm day by the pool that we would recommend and purchase again.

Chateau Morrisette Orchard Series Sangria – A fruity tasting wine from the Blue Ridge Parkway area that has 8.5% alcohol content that we gave a high rating of 8.5 that we paid $8 for a bottle that we would purchase again.  It is a bit dryer than most of the Sangria’s we have tasted but once the ice cooled the drink the dryness dissipated.
