Wine of the Week - Jost 2010 Riesling


There's so much going on in this wine.  It's easily the best Riesling I've ever had, and possibly the best white.  I can't say enough about it.  Caught me completely off guard.

Great scents of sour green apple and white grapes, and a little bit of cantaloupe.

On the tongue, this wine is the gift that keeps on giving - complex and layered.  It starts off feeling a little watery, but soon reveals itself to be medium bodied.  There's a nice, light bite up front.  Then some tastes of honey on melons come through.  Finishes with nice acid.  All throughout, the flavors are gentle and subtle and perfectly balanced.  The low alcohol content is a nice change of pace from the norm.

8% alcohol
