Wine Review & Rating: **+ China Great Wall Wine Chateau SunGod Reserve Riesling, Shacheng, China, NV

Find prices and retail availability for China riesling.

Initial review, by way of background: This is China Great Wall Wine Chateau SunGod Reserve Riesling, Shacheng, China, NV.

In the glass: Clear with a hint of vanilla.

On the nose: Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, shows shy sugar cane and light grass.  Seems gentle and lithe.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are distinctive light honey, plus light hay.  Shows a bright finish, toned with acids and a touch of residual sugar, which finishes slightly syrupy. 

In summary: Overall, pleasant enough and rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for balance between its sugar and acids.
