My Sweet Riesling, Hogue
I was par-using the wine aisle at Trader Joes looking for something fabulous, inexpensive and interesting!...looking for a quick, light wine to go with my chicken soup! Hogue to the rescue.
Of course the alluring $1.99 price tag caught my eye! I am always on the lookout for something fun and neat to share with my friends and readers. While 2 buck Chuck, Charles Shaw sometimes delivers a winner, I cannot say the same for wine quite this inexpensive. However, Hogue is Delish!
Hogue is a Riesling, so its sweet and the bubbles don't give you a moment to be sober! So if you want a nice little bubble lift, this is the wine for you!

I drank it causally while I worked and enjoyed a delicious summertime soup which accompanied a white wine perfectly! I also really liked the smell. I never knew that I was going to become a wine drinker who judged the smell so strongly, but the smell of this wine makes it feel so much finer.
This wine is not for the complex of palates, but it is awfully enjoyable!...and I like the bottle as well.
I would totally do this wine again, the taste is really close to a sweet Moscato. So if you like Moscato and want to try something new this is a nice step two!

What the Bottle Says: Sweet. Fruity. That's what the winemakers at The Hogue Cellars had in mind when they crafted our Sweeeet Reisling. Loaded with zesty citrus and crisp apricot flavors, this well-balanced wine will satisfy any sweet toothand compliment a variety of dishes. And for us, it doesnt get much sweeter that that.
According to the International Riesling Foundation's Riesling Profile, the wine is a Sweet! Which means Extra Sweet!
