First of all, take a look at this awesome wine bottle. Eye-catching azure blue with a cool, modern yellow label. If you look closely at the fish on the bottle, it spells out “blue”. Screw cap, too!
This wine hails from the Pfalz region of Germany. Now, they say Germany produces some of the best Rieslings, probably because they have been cultivating the grape since the 1400s. I’m not sure if this was the best I’ve ever had, but it was definitely worth my $8.50. This cheap wine was dry enough for me to eat it with my chicken and potato dinner, so I popped the top on tried it out tonight, after letting it chill in the freezer for a few minutes.
First thing I notice: Apricot. Now, I don’t really like apricot, but the bouquet of apricot and peach was a nice touch, and not overpowering. It also had the distinct apple-like smell and taste of a Riesling. Fine work, Blue Fish.
I would certainly get this cheap wine again.
Enjoyed with: Chicken, potato, veggies
