“The Wasp” Gets New Riesling Lyrics

It’s Summer of Riesling! Let’s change up the tune! Or, actually, the lyrics…

Check out these great new Riesling lyrics to “The Wasp” (Texas Radio and the Big Beat) from The Doors’ L.A. Woman album.

Written by our talented and just generally awesome East Coast Sales Manager, Ian Dick. Who wants to see our team record this? Rock on, Acidhounds!

I want to tell you about the Mosel Riesling and the steep slate
Comes out of the Devonian seabeds
Blue and Red, with gobs of acidity
With a balance, pinpoint and hard to master

Some call it Himmelreich in its Lagen
Others, spicy, sundialed and Layed.
I love the berries I have picked in this straw basket
We have constructed presshouses in honor of your juicing
This is the land where Ausonius wrote.

The pickers in the vineyard, basketed and knived
They are saying: “Forget the Kab,
Let us pick the Edelfäule
Out here in the vineyard, there is no clean fruit
Out here we is botrytis-cinerea.”

Listen to this and I’ll tell you ‘bout the Riesling
Tell you ‘bout the Riesling and the loss of God
I’ll tell you about the freezing night
The meager drops of frozen wine
I’ll tell you about the the wine with piercing terroir!

I’ll tell you this
No pH of 5.1 will forgive us now for 80 grams of RS.

I’ll tell you about the Mosel Riesling and the Steep Slate
Mineral driven, slow and mad, like some new language.

Now listen to this and I’ll tell you ‘bout the Riesling
Tell you ‘bout the Mosel Riesling vine
I’ll tell you ‘bout the freezing night
The meager drops of frozen wine
Tell you ‘bout the wine with piercing terroir!
