Louis Guntrum 2006 Dry Riesling

For whatever reason, I don't like German or Spanish wines quite as much as others. That's a generalization of course, but hey, it usually holds true. A Spanish wine rated 90 would probably be an 86 or 87 to me. This German wine probably fits in with that - I have a feeling others would like this more than me.

That said, I find this "dry" riesling not too dry - maybe a 2 - and it almost has a cork taint even though it's a screwtop. Lemon-straw coloured and a musty nose, it sort of tastes like that too: musty, lemony straw. What else can I say: not my favorite. Drinkable, but not much more.

83 points.
