Take a bite out of me.
Schafer-Frohlich, Riesling, Spatlese, Halbtrocken, 2006.
Haltrocken means half dry of course, and it's very half dry - as in half sweet. This wine was so JUICY and honeyed, with good acidity but not like seering crazy taut acidity.
It reminds me of those Harry and David pears that my father-in-law sends us every Christmas. They're so ripe the juice is practically seeping out of them. When you go to bite into one it leaks everywhere. You have to eat it over a bowl and then drink the juice out. YUM!
Peter really loved it, and he drank it at lunch over the course of 3 days and it seemed to hold up really well. I got this wine at Palate for $17.99.
P.S. I had to hide my face because I was feeling ugly and Peter insisted I be in the picture.
