WTN: '07 Schloss Lieser QbA

Postby Mark Lipton » Wed Apr 22, 2009 1:01 am

With Jean absent for several nights at a meeting, single parenting means a sharp limitation of dining options. Tonight, Andrew and I decided upon a dinner of cheese ravioli, so I whipped together a concoction of the aforementioned ravioli, pesto, crumbled bacon, peas and asparagus. With this kitchen sink cuisine I poured myself from an open bottle:

2007 Schloss Lieser Riesling QbA
nose: sulfur, peaches, stones, a hint of petrol
palate: crisp acidity, slightly off-dry, peach-lime fruit, strong minerality

Amazingly enough, this was a decent match with the food, and a lovely wine in every respect. Although there was an initial whack of burnt matchstick, it quickly blew off. Purchased for ~$15 during Crush's white wine sale.

Sounds very nice Mark, thanks for the note. I enjoyed the 06 of this a great deal - shall keep an eye out for the 07.

Table & Vine had the '07 on the shelves last time I looked.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.

This one is good enough to mix it with lemonade or soda. Goes fine with Cheeseburgers and Big Macs. Second glass tastes better than the first.
