Wine Review: 14 Hands 2010 Riesling

14 Hands 2010 Riesling14 Hands Riesling

Okay, so I may have a Riesling obsession! At least, these days.  I had a Moscato faze too…but now it’s too sweet for me.  So…Riesling it is.  This caught my eye because most of my friends love 14 hands wines, but drink the reds.  For me, I enjoy whites more.  So when I saw this wine, I picked up right up!  Plus, we were having Asian food that night and it goes so well with a great Riesling!

Must.Have.Wine. Mommy-Approved Score: 4 Stars

Where I found it: Local Liquor Store

Price: $11-$13

Reviews from the Experts:

Review from BevMo! served this wine for a while and it was a perfect match for their spicy Szechuan dishes, particularly with fish or chicken. Off-dry or perhaps even a bit sweeter than that but with good acidity and balance. Classic Riesling petrol notes. (It’s a good thing, really it is!) Not as nuanced or complex as the very best Rieslings, but pretty darn tasty nonetheless. Personally I like them a bit drier than this, but it’s not cloyingly sweet by any means.

Review from Vine and Table: Dry – Apple blossom and tangerine with a hint of wet stone, peaches and Granny Smith apples. 14 Hands Riesling features aromas of apple blossom and tangerine with a hint of wet stone. Flavors of fresh peaches and Granny Smith apples fill the mouth with racy acidity and a juicy finish. this would be a great pairing for spicy Asian dishes, or before dinner as a cocktail.

From the 14 Hands Site: 14 Hands Riesling features aromas of stone fruit and apples with subtle notes of honey and flowers. Sweet-tart flavors of nectarines and apricots fill the mouth, and finishes with a racy juiciness. This would be a great aperitif, or would pair nicely with spicy Asian dishes.

Food Pairings: Asian foods, and per BevMo…Szechuan dishes!

Cheers! Trina
