Live Blogging #WBC13: 2012 Platinum “Block 3” Riesling

Drinking Cedar Creek Wine Riesling – it’s a new wine with low alcohol (about 8 percent). Didn’t worry about sugar levels when they were making it – they were worried more about flavor. Just bottled in February and released a week ago. $25/bottle.

Great value for $25. Bracing acidity with sharp green apple. First time they made the wine from 3 acres of plantings from 1991. Reminds us of Mosel-style (a German region) Riesling. Appreciate the low alcohol and balanced acidity.
