mmm... Red Newt entrees... can't beat the Bistro!

Check out the International Riesling Foundation scale on many FLX Rieslings (including this one). 2008 Red Newt Semi Dry checks out as "medium dry" according to IRF guidelines.

Probably could have called it dry, since the balance is crisp and focused, but "semi-dry" seemed more consistent with the IRF philosophy. And our 2008 Dry Riesling is definitely more dry and racy than this one. Is there a better designation for wines that might fall between "dry" and "semi-dry"? I have used the term "off-dry" in the past, but that term is not too popular with consumers, and probably even more confusing for some.
