Willm Alsace Riesling, 2012

This Riesling plus the Gamay Noir (below) and a Sophoro Sparkling Rose from New Zealand comprised the wine flight chosen by the staff at Food Dance Cafe to accompany the Restaurant Week dinner specials.

I saved most of my Riesling until I had already finished my slow-cooked beef dish. (The Gamay Noir wwent well with that, and the Sophoro was a good match for the creamy tomato soup and the sausage appetizer.) And I'm glad I waited for the Riesling because it opened up a lot over the course of the meal. With air and warming in the glass, the delicate floral aromas became more prominent. Clean and fresh with a nice citrus edge on the finish. It is another wine I will put on my buy list.
