Nick's four wine pairs: Everyone thought this was a German Riesling with a few years under its belt. The golden colour showed a little evolution. On bouquet, green and yellow apples, minerals and a little kerosene. Silky on palate with good volume and power. Quite lovely citric and orchard fruit and chalk. Low alcohol (8.5%) with a little residual sugar present. On the night, a great match with Morbier cheese. The next day it seemed drier and more mineral. This'll be really great in 10 years, I'd imagine.
A delightfully elegant Kabinett from Dönnhoff. Colour medium gold. Nose eloquent with white fruit, discreet flowers, minerals and touches of petrol and tobacco. Medium/light bodied palate with beautifully balanced sugar and moreish acidity, underlying roundness, gentle backbone and complex interplay of fruit, minerals with a sprinkling of spice and tobacco. Very good.
