    And the winner is…Late Harvest Riesling. So the masses like sweet wine apparently.

    This is terribly unfortunate and the reason why this reason will never be taken seriously. Sweet Rieslings which are backsweetened with white sugar, not done in the traditional German way, are the top wines? The people rating this should really learn more about wine and try more wines. Blackstar makes far superior wines than that tourist wine & there are way better wines out here from others. Winter White as top wine is like going to California and choosing Bota Box Chardonnay as best Chard. Even in Riesling heavy NY, the results don’t look like this…because they produce good stuff other than Riesling and produce Riesling properly.
