Giesen Riesling 2013

No. Just… no.

Overly sweet, hardly any acidity. If I hadn’t seen the label I would have assumed this was a bottle of sauvignon blanc that had been left in the sun, then had its contents tipped out and replaced with cat urine and sugar.

Arrogant Frog “Ribet” 2011 Sauvignon Blanc

At $8 a bottle this is surprisingly good. More surprising, it’s a French Sauvignon Blanc so doesn’t suffer from the cloyingly fruity stuff out of New Zealand. Perfectly drinkable.

Beer tasting: Lucky Ale

To quote Zoolander, “water is the essence of wetness”. Obviously the beer makers at Lucky Drink Co are big fans of water. Unfortunately for this particular brew they appear to have forgotten to add the “beer”.

Nifty bottle though!
