Yes, it's less than focused and oversweet. But it went with damn near everything I could pair with it, had a hint of lime and decent acidity. A good dancing partner. If it were 3-4 bucks cheaper I'd buy a gallon bottle.
Blind Riesling Tasting (My house): This was passable, but after the second flight of awesome dissapointments, my note-taking dropped off precipitously. nose: bruised pineapple palate: half dry, half sweet, this seemed to be confused and yet simple and grapey at the same time. Best of the flight, 3rd overall (to give some indication of the quality of the entrants in the tasting!)86-87
