Pierre Sparr 2005 Alsace Riesling ($13.00)
Clear light straw color with golden glints. Delicious fruit and floral aromas, citrus and white flowers. Crisp and dry, limey fruit with a back note of tangerine and an almost homeopathic hint of caraway, over tangy, mouth-watering acidity that hangs on in a very long finish. Refreshing, food-friendly and easy to enjoy. US Importer: W. J. Deutsch & Sons Ltd., Harrison, N.Y. (Oct 3, 2007)
FOOD MATCH: A versatile companion with fish, seafood, chicken, poultry or veal. It went particularly well with a dish crafted to match, the simple sea bass pan-roasted with onions, garlic and citrus featured in the Oct. 4, 2007 30 Second Wine Advisor FoodLetter.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
