Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S:Vino…The Wine List RIESLING
In the last wine list report, I sampled Joseph Handler’s Sweet Red Wine. This time around I sample the Joseph Handler Riesling
For me Riesling is what I thought Pinot Grigio would taste like when I first had white wines. I was disappointed because I thought Pinot’s were sweet white wines. In my experience I find them to be just slightly less dry than Chardonnay. After reading the description on back I poured myself a glass.
Generally speaking, I believe that a good glass of wine has a great smell to it or “bouquet”, is easy on the palate, and is more on the sweet side than the dry side. I know that drinking this particular Riesling is absolutely fun and worth it’s price point. How can you argue with a wine that costs about $8 a bottle, can be paired with pretty much whatever you’re eating and/or can be enjoyed alone on its own?
I tend to think at moments like this when the glass is half full something should be done… it should be filled back up. Ultimately this is a light and good tasting Riesling from Joseph Handler. Especially now that the weather is starting to cooperate for the Spring 2013 there’s nothing like a cold glass of wine to just sip and pass the time with, whether out and about with friends or an evening in at home. Buy this wine you won’t regret it. Pros: It goes down smooth, best served cold, and price point is perfect for an inexpensive bottle of wine. Cons: It sucks when the bottle is finished. 😀 Till next time this has been another Vino Wine List: Riesling Edition by THEJNSREPORT.
