Today was my annual hosting of the Wednesday Wine Committee. There was 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert, all provided by me. Tasted blind, as always.

White number one. In comparison to other Alsatian Rieslings I enjoy, this was certainly more on the mellow side. Even after time in the glass, very little notes of petrol or limestone. This showed more like a SB or better yet, an older Alsatian Pinot Gris. Had some oily characteristics with grilled Meyer lemon and honeyed chalk, but certainly more restrained in style. Obviously of nice quality, I think this is just the style to be more friendly with pairings as it paired well with crab cakes.
