Having only drank half a bottle of Manzanilla and one bottle of wine since Tuesday I’ll happily get the ball rolling this week.
This here tonight with an egg and bacon flan* and polenta chips…
…a Mittelrhein Weissburgunder 2019 from Toni Jost.
Lees-y notes dominate the nose, which I quite like, with ripe orchard fruits and a touch of spice in the background. Similar notes on tasting, the lees influence, along with fresh acidity to balance the mediumweight fruit, gives the wine a strong mineral feel which I really like, Fresh, vibrant and fruity it was a great match to the food and quite a ‘serious’ example of its type.
*the flan, described as a quiche but my late mum would have disowned me if I’d called it that, came from the shelf of sadness in the local supermarket. Must say, it was very nice though and not as burnt as it looks in the pic !
Although I might have to wait until tomorrow for a reply, what’s in your glass this week ?
