Day 139 Drink: Sun Garden 2007 Riesling
Sun Garden Riesling comes from Bernkastel-Kues, Germany, in the Mosel region. The winery focuses on Riesling and Pinot Noir. Sun Garden buys grapes from a local cooperative, whose members operate vineyards on slopes overlooking the river valley. The slate in the soil gives local wines a touch of minerality.
Sun Garden 2007 Riesling pours a light straw color and has a inviting floral aroma. The overall flavor is semi-dry with hints of pear and melon. Not overly complex, but a good summer cocktail hour wine.
