Hello everybody and welcome Wine Library TV. I am your host, me, Gary Vaynerchuck. And this my friends is the thunder show, aka, the internet’s most passionate wine program. And we are here today, tasting some wine. Doing a very interesting week of shows. We’re tasting wines in a brown paper bags. K Murph, Kristine Murphy, might have seen her in floor. All I know is Riesling. I don’t know country, I don’t know if its vintage, I don’t know price, I don’t know jack crap, other than it’s a Riesling. And so, we’re going to review it, unveil it, have a little bit of fun fun. Right Brandon? Once again, Brandon running wild. Let’s give this a sniffy sniff.
So on the nose, you definitely got a little bit of like cantaloupe melon thing coming across, right away. Little clove action. Little bit of citrus play as well. You know, one would definitely guess Riesling on the nose. I think, maybe Coverts Bludonak, because there's a little hint of leachy on the back end. That would suede me that way. Let’s give it a whirl.
Nice acid balance. Little more sugar than I would have like, which makes me think it’s not Absation. But good ripe fruit. Very sweet like peach flavor on the back end, which I like. Good solid stuff. Probably a $20-$25 Riesling. That's probably what its worth. In this unveil, let’s say $18-$24, that would be the price range that I might pay for this. I like the structure. It’s a little sugarfied in the back end, which almost makes me think, my price point’s a little high. But all in all, its acidity in the back end is very ripe and kind of like a sour apple flavor that enjoy quite a bit. Petroly fruits pretty good. Let’s unveil this. 88 plus points.
Rainer Wess 2007 Riesling. 91 points David Shelvett. And this is $28. Dry wine from Austria. And I like it, Rainer Wess. Just a hair fruity for me. 91 Shelvett, I went 88. I was a little bit more lime tasteful wines originally. I did go a little bit lower, so base on that, this wine is a pass. If you really see what we’re doing here Matt. Structure it, it’s very intriguing kind of way to do it.
Rainer Wess is a great producer, Shelvett is an amazing reviewer. And all in all, it was a great quality effort. But I thought it was just a hair over rated. And that’s it, that’s what we’re going to do. Tight. You know, you're in and out. It’s the internet age, you don’t need this 7 hour epic Wine Library TV’s. Try to refine this a little bit.
Question of the day, what do you like to put in brown paper bags? You, me, wine world, change.
