[quote=“Bob Honest”]But if you want an inspiring drop on your tongue, lively and fresh, try the German Whites. A Riesling, dry or medium or even sweet is always a good selection. Makes more alive, not tired like a heavy Red.
Or the *aner choices, of whose the musky Silvaner is most popular. One of my favourites, unless I am rather depressed, then a Rivaner with its slight cheese backflavour is just right for me.
A white Burgunder never got me going, but it is nice for any occasion.
Hmmmm a dry (!) Riesling Spaetlese, Sweet and sour at the same time.
Seldomly to be found though.[/quote]
I’m quoting from another thread that was called anger something. I’m going to be experimenting with German wine for awhile. I used to drink it back before I knew any better, but now I want to see if I can find anything that tastes remotely like what I remember.
My first foray was from Costco. It is a Riesling Spaetlese for 339NT. I found it to be really too sweet. It gave me heartburn. I know that a Spaetlese is made from over-ripe grapes that have a higher sugar content, but it doesn’t always mean sweeter. I might be sticking to a Kabinett from now on.
