Today's Wine Tasting Note

© Copyright 1998 by Robin Garr. All rights reserved.


This delayed note reports on a tasting from mid-March, just before I left on an extended business trip; for some reason it didn't get posted here, but as you'll see, it's a fine wine and an excellent value that deserves recognition. I'm pleased to place it online, if belatedly.

Weingut Bründlmayer 1992 Zöbinger Heiligenstein Riesling Kamptal Erste Lage Alte Reben Qualitäswein ($9.99)
Clear bright gold in color, this Austrian delight breathes aromatic scents of honey, a mineral quality like slate and a pleasantly resinous hint of pine. Flavors reflect the nose, dry and full, with steely acidity and stony minerals in a long finish. Very fine! U.S. importer: Milton S. Kronheim & Co. Inc., Washington, D.C.; a Terry Theise Estate Selection. (March 15, 1998)

FOOD MATCH: Good match with Greek-style chicken simmered in a light, cinnamon-accented tomato sauce.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
