Carl Sittmann 2010 Riesling

carl sittmann riesling 2010Just pulled this cool looking bottle out of my fridge (the color on my iphone photo is a bit off – the bottle is actually a very vibrant blue). 

Another Friday night and another German Riesling!  This Carl Sittmann Riesling is pretty common in the US, and it’s pretty cheap.  The 2011 vintage is only $9.99 at Gary’s  Wine.

Sadly, the wine quality matches the price!  It’s not bad, but not great either.  There’s a faint floral smell with a sweetish taste.  It’s not super sweet, but definitely not dry.  The main problem is there’s just not much other taste…

My verdict?  A cheap sweet swirl in the mouth is all you’ll get out of this one.  It’s especially disappointing considering you could get a great Riesling for around $20  (e.g., Gunderloch).  But if you’re looking for an easy-to-drink cheap sweet wine, then this is it!
