Default I can't remember...

I opened a couple of bottles of Riesling this weekend that have been aging for about 6 months now. Taste was well recieved, clarity was perfect; but I got a couple of comments about it not being crisp enough (felt like grape jucie)... I can't remember; is that an acid issue or something else? Thanks in advance.

Usually that lack of crispness is too little acid or too much residual sugar. Serving temperature may also be a factor - cooler tends to reduce perception of sweetness.
