*Cooper Creek Riesling 2007

We really differed on this New Zeeland: Nancy pronounced it sweet and refused to drink it. My take was that, while it certainly had a sweet element to it (as one would expect of a Riesling), it was at the same time a full bodied and subtle combination of apple and tangerine flavors that is rather pleasant to drink. If you don't insist upon absolutely dry table wines you might well like this, and the sell out price is an absolutely amazing $3.99.

No, I did not pronounce this as sweet, I pronounced it "over the hill!" It is a 2007 vintage. I recommend a more recent one.
