Pierre Sparr 2009 Riesling, Alsace

Coopers Hawk & ON 004

Does the approach of Labor Day give you the “summer is slipping away” feeling? Nothing better to prolong the good vibrations of summer than a glass of Riesling.

This Riesling from Alsace has medium body with a trace of petrol on the nose. The acidity for the Pierre Sparr is somewhat muted, giving a smooth balanced taste.

On the palate it delivers lemon and green apples. It refreshes and goes down easy. The alcohol is 12.5%, so you can sip to your heart’s content.

At about $16 the Pierre Sparr is a good value. If you are a white wine fan, you owe it to yourself to taste Alsace.

Full disclosure: This wine was received as a marketing sample.
