If I had a teleporter you could have had one of mine. Stocks here remain undiminished due to the unseasonably warm weather and a resultant lack of desire to eat hearty stews and casseroles. As evidenced by this lot…
…three white wines, two of which I’d describe as summery !
The Ezerjo from Kamocsay is quite the individual. Characterful, soft and full of ripe musky bruised orchard fruit flavours it put me in mind of a rich Alsace Pinot Gris but at half the price. Holds its 14% ABV with remarkable ease too.
The Riesling Trocken 2017 from Schloss Lieser is a lovely example of its type with vibrant fruit and mineral freshness to the fore. This was the second of two bottles, the first seemed uncompromising and austere but I now realise I’d over chilled it. This one was served around 12 degrees and tasted more rounded and better balanced as a result.
The Manzanilla from M&S was a present from friends and a well chosen one at that. Fresh as a daisy and full of the expected aromas and flavours it was polished off over three days, instead of the usual five, and my favourite of this weeks wines.
