Riesling – Barefoot

Riesling – Californian – 2012

Rieslings! aren’t they supposed to be German? I was in the mood for a Riesling and I found this Californian one.

Of a beautiful pale colour, and shy aromas.

I had the impression that Rieslings were less sweet than Moscatos and that they felt more serious. As it turns out, they can be as sweet and playful.  You know, I am Moscato fan , but I had previously tried Riesling – Bree and I was expecting something like this.

I am not saying it is bad, but it is too sweet for what I was expecting.

Fruitiness: 3.4 /5

Sourness: 2.9 /5

Sweetness: 4.2 /5

Body: 3 / 10

Style: Light

[Note: Fruitiness, sourness and Sweetness, are a white wine characteristics, they do not define the quality of a wine]

Found in: Carrefour

The Overall SunShower rating is:

2.8 /5

Rating levels:

4.7 – 5.0 The finest of all!
4.0 – 4.6 Oh this is good!
3.1 – 3.9 This ok! Pleasant. But don’t be demanding.
2.3 – 3.0 Ok, this is weird.
1.0 – 2.2 Don’t try this, I already sacrificed myself for you.
0.0 – 0.9 Cannot believe there is something this disgusting.
