I noticed Willm 2004 Riesling and almost passed it by. My wine age bias kicked in as did my aversion to inexpensive Alsatian wine (I haven't had the best of times with them in the past). I was pleasantly surprised.
Domaine Willm Riesling 2004 ($9.99)
- From Alsace
- Very pale white gold - almost water-like in appearance
- It took Willm a few minutes to open up (admission: I forgot it was chilling in the fridge and left it too long in the arctic weather). As the Riesling warmed it revealed scents of mineral, citrus, and apricot
- Light-bodied for an Alsatian Riesling. Very well balanced with simple fruit flavors and a crisp finish
***.5 (3.5 stars out of 5)
This little jewel paired quite well with Himalayan takeout.
