Who & Why

This time we have two Chardonnays from California and Germany and two Rieslings from Germany.
Many high-end wines have become very expensive. If you search for quality and a good value for money than German Riesling is it.
The German Spätburgunder and Pinot Noir is getting better and better and so there is now a large selection of great wines.
We compare the very rare "Traumzeit Großes Känguru" from W.E. Frank wines with one of the top Chardonnays of Kistler.
Keller 2007 Hubacker Riesling Großes Gewächs and two fine Nebbiolo from Elio Grasso and La Spinetta were tasted this time.
Now it is time for two bottles which we bought at the last online auction.
Various white wines from Germany and Loire were the accompaniment to a pulpo salad.
There was no topic, it should just be fun.
2011 is a forgotten year for German Riesling. It is neither an exceptional nor a bad vintage and so it is not remembered well. Let's see how the vintage really is.
It all started when we had a monkfish for dinner and wanted to have a perfect match. So we just wanted to have a good Riesling as accompaniment and opened some bottles. Finally we had a extensive Riesling tasting with 8 Riesling and one pirate.
