This was lovely with some Chinese steamed sea-bass last night, Weinbach are one of the great Alsace producers in my opinion. Notice that a lot more Alsace wine at a range of price points has appeared on the WS website. Making the allocation of my wine budget even more of a juggling act!
I’ll be opening this tonight … The OH will be cooking a kilo of rib eye…, not sure what I’ll have yet as I’m not a big steak eater and we’ll probably hit some nice Gin afterwards ! He goes offshore Tuesday morning til January so planning a nice evening in tonight
To @Nowt_in_my_glass - Gary Player said, “The more I practice, the luckier I get”. Your translation of this is “Blind Chance” - I suspect it’s more to do with “You know when your obsessed with wine when you get plenty of delicious stuff heading your way through your obsessive attention to the list”
@robert_mcintosh and @DrEm whilst you might have a point, I think her father enjoys sharing his wine with people who appreciate it…and I am more than happy to oblige given his collection of mature Bordeaux and Rhône!
