2009 Vineland Estates Semi dry riesling

Bias up front I like my rieslings dry. So when I saw this one as Semi dry (it was a gift) I was not anxious to try it. Pale in color with a nose of honeysuckle. On the mid pallet this wine definitely lives up to it’s name as semi-dry. Apricots come screaming out along with some dominant sugar. The wine is medium in length on the finish with the sweetness living on. I have to admit this is so not to my tastes. From a German scale this would get an auslese. I would give it an 87 or so but only because it’s not to my tastes. For me this is the kind of sweet sugar water that gives Rieslings a bad name.
