A few days late in posting the Wednesday Wine Committee wines. Standard format with 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind.

Zero frame of reference for this as I’ve never had a white wine like this. It started off with a slight hint of petrol, and a dense and rich mid palate full of bruised pear and lychee but had zero acidity. Petrol blew off with more time in the glass. I guessed Alsatian Pinot Gris.

Basic bitch Rioja Blanca. Clean and tidy, nice fruit on the palate. Flinty, saline nose. Short finish. Ideal poolside.
