Blue Fish Riesling 2006 wine review by (PB)


This German varietal from the Pfalz region of western part of the country is pale straw with a really wonderful bouquet of sweet robust ripe fruit and cream. I was eager to get this wine in my mouth but disappointment came quickly.

In the mouth the wine is clunky and struggles for identity. It fades quickly and finishes with an odd note. Germany is known for its wines of the Mosel Saar Ruwer first and foremost where quality Rieslings are produced and are delicious. The rest of Germany is pretty much a wash and the majority of wines are of the "table wine" variety.

The Nahe region can produce some tasty wines but again, they tend toward the mass produced table wines that remain in Europe.

Throw this bluefish back!
