2006 Yellow Tail Riesling (Australia)

Ok… This 1.5 liter bottle was a gift at Christmas time and who am I to turn down free wine, especially with a mortgage to pay.

Hay colored and lots of lemon on the nose. This isn’t exactly a crisp Riesling and there’s a lot of sweetness here. All put together, it comes off as kind of a limoncello light. Thankfully it stops just short of being cloying. The wine lingers on the tongue for a little bit, helped by the sugar.

While I can’t openly advocate buy this, it’s still not something I’d throw down the drain, a good thing since a have a liter and a half of this stuff.

The Yellow Tail Riesling will go well with any leftover Asian food you might have in the fridge, as well as a pilsner might. And for $10 a mag, I’d buy this over Bud any day.
