After a longish ride in the sun I didn’t feel like spending too much time on my feet in the kitchen and eventually decided to have a selection of easy to prep and cook snacks yesterday.
First up. Red shrimp and chorizo with chilli, spring onions and honey …
…with a Nierstein Oelberg Riesling Trocken 2015. At 14% ABV I was a bit concerned about balance but needn’t have been, it was a lovely drop and held its alcohol lightly. Unfortunately the pic doesn’t do justice to its beautiful green gold colour.
Citrus, mostly lime and its zest, minerals, and a developing note of kerosene on the nose, nothing too overt thankfully. Powerful and nuanced flavours of lime, nectarine, earthy spice and minerals beautifully balanced by fresh acidity on tasting. Length and depth of flavour were very good as was its refreshing and complex finish. The TWS drinking window advises it will last until 2035, but for my personal tastes, I caught this just about right.
Looking forward to reading more tomorrow. Have a lovely day everyone.
