New world and old world, Rieslings a world apart...
On my left the 2008 Trimbach Alsace Riesling was softer, more subtle - honey and hints of petrol on the nose. Soft, but not too soft, very flavorful. Score: 17/20
The 2007 Grosset Polish Hill Reisling was a treasure from my cellar, a recommendation from my good friend Ed. Powerful classic notes of petrol and citrus. Incredibly crisp and tightly wound, a minerally grapefruit finish that only softened slightly over the evening. Score: 17.5/20
Terrific wines, the Trimbach more versatile, but the Grosset a better wine and should be terrific with white fish or shellfish.
