Geist M 2014 Saar Riesling Trocken – Mosel

img_0003Lot 18, $21.99


Aaron:  This featured a nutty brown nose with melon and granite.  The flavor was a bit dull and not very sweet but did include lots of leafy greens.  As expected, very little fruit flavors and probably not a favorite for American Riesling lovers.  87 points

Teri: In the US most people associate riesling with a sweeter flavor. In areas like Australia and Germany, this grape takes many forms. This bottle is dry and crisp with blended flavors of metallic minerals and tropical fruits. No noticeable heavy tannins but still carries a light to medium body. 88 points
