Stoeffler your face

[vineyard & village]Stoeffler 2005 Pinot Blanc (Alsace) – Crisp and apple-dominated, with winter melon and a touch of Thai basil. It doesn’t taste like there’s much auxerrois here, but if so it’s underripe and not a factor. Crisp and juicy turns to wan and watery on the finish; the surplus of acidity is refreshing with food but the rest of the wine disappears. So leave it as a tart cocktail wine and you’ll do OK.
