This great-tasting white wine is something special to us. You see, I have never written a review for a wine.
Update: This is my one and only wine review folks! So, for me to take the time to create this page to tell you about a great-tasting white wine that I think is the best tasting white wine, well it's got to be pretty special, you know! And, it is.
In all my years of writing online reviews, I have yet to pen another wine review other than this one! To your health.

Great-Tasting White Wine -- Must Be Kept in a Wine Cooler.
This is the very wine cooler that our friend Dave has. He was showing it to us the other night when we were at their house for a pizza party. You see, Dave is a wine collector who buys and sells wines.
He is quite the authority -- I've been working on him now for a couple of years trying to get him to join Squidoo. You see, he knows SO much about wines that I know he would write some wonderful lenses on great-tasting white wines.
But in the meantime, I'm sharing what we found to be a great-tasting white wine -- that really should be kept in a good wine cooler like the Vinotemp 34-Bottle Touch Screen Wine Cooler.

Researching A Great-Tasting White Wine
More about Burg Layer Schosskapelle Kabinett: I've been researching the Ferdinand Pieroth Burg Layer Schosskapelle Kabinett online to learn more about this great-tasting white wine. The chart of wines produced by Ferdinand Pieroth Winery gives you a good idea of the various wine types.
In my research, I came across an interesting blog post of September 22, 2008 by dhonig, a cartoonist and wine geek. His review was of a 2001 Ferdinand Pieroth Burg-Layer Schosskapelle Spatlese -- of the Kerner white grapes in the Nahe Region of Germany. He described that variety of white wine as having a slightly thick feel with a fairly complex taste.
At Wine Dog, I found a listing of a 2006 Burg Layer Schlosskapelle Auslese, produced by Kreuznacher Weinhaus with the Reisling grape from the Nahe Region in Germany. The suggested price per bottle is listed as $19.99. "The Nahe region of Germany historically bottled its wines in cobalt blue bottles produced locally where the soil conditions produced the color naturally at the local glassworks. By tradition, only Nahe wines should be presented in the 'Blue Bottle.'"Wine Dog says, "Nahe wines offer a mixture of both Mosel character and Rhine. This medium fruity late harvest Auslese is filled full of ripe green apples with just a hint of honey and peach."
Wine Dog also had a listing for a 2007 Burg Layer Schlosskapelle Kabinett. For one of the most versatile wines produced worldwide, and specific to Germany, Wine Dog states that the Kabinett is the pick. The Kabinett wines offer a taste that is just right -- neither too sweet nor too dry! "The Bacchus grape provides a unique taste experience with hints of honeyed fruit, tropical characteristics and a terrific flowery nose."
