So now they’re listening to The Fall, which is a good enough excuse for me to hide upstairs. With my Riesling, of course.
It’s a good Pfalz Riesling - Aldi are doing something right! Lovely nose - flinty, limey perhaps a touch of stone fruit, and very focused on the palate, with citrus and peach notes, a good amount of minerality and acidity and a medium to long finish. All very well balanced. Amazing value for the price!
The Patrimoine beer was also very nice - I only had a little sip, mind. In a blind tasting I would say it was Le cidre de Normandie. Is this a good thing for a Saison beer? I don’t know. It was very drinkable, though, and when I asked the girl what she thought she looked terrified and said “erm… fruity?..”. That’s right. Apple-y.
