Wednesday Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual.

Not a single person called this Italian. In fact, most called this either Alsatian Riesling (what I thought), Alsatian Pinot Gris it even Bordeaux Blanc. This was a dead ringer for Riesling from Alsace...petrol on the nose, tart white peach and crushed limestone on the palate. Unique.

2011 vintage. Still pale color but intense aromas of creamy pomme fruits. More fleshy than crisp. This paired well with a semolina dumpling soup.
