Dr. Konstantin Frank semi-dry, good but not as good as Wiemer.

Oh, the temperature hit 54 today? Time to pretend it's summer.

Drinking a 2010 Baudry Chinon Domaine.

It is really damn good, yall.

The second bottle of Chinon I have ever owned is now in my basement waiting to be consumed.

I'll be drinking that 76 Chinon Friday with a couple friends.

I just can not get into wine drinking.  I know that several love it but to me, it just tastes too dry.  Maybe I am drinking the wrong stuff.  Anyone suggest something that is not dry and has a sweet taste to it and I will be willing to try it out.

Try a Dr Loosen riesling.  There are 4 levels of sweetness to rieslings.  A wine store should be able to give some guidance to the right level of sweetness.

 

I prefer Spatlese, which is second least in sweetness.  Above that you are almost getting into dessert wines.  They are also almost always low in alcohol content.

 

Cheers,

The German classification of wines indicates sugar content at harvest and has nothing to do with the residual sugar of the final wine.

While true I so find spatlese and auslese to be sweeter than kabinett styles although it might be that trocken wines are more readily available.
