The sun makes everything look twice as good

                                  Madame has been pregnant twice this year...and is   
                            constanly looking for worms. The nest is very close
                                 to us...but she has maybe grown accustomed
                                         to the neighbours.


                                                    
                                                     Hirtzberger Grüner Veltliner

                            Bernhad Ott...known as Mr Veltliner....
                      and his wines tend to be closed when young...
                              but this was surprisingly open.
                        Honey citrus...with some mellow grapefruit....
                    stone fruits developed...and some tropical tones.
                                    Prefered this on day one...

                                      After all the whites...a steak was on the menu.
                           I wandered into the cellar and instead of trying    
                                  to decide what would be good...
                           I chose something I KNEW would be perfect.
                         Last bottle...but what the hell...it was lovely. 

                                   Kreuzberg Spätburgunder
                                               Silberberg G G 2009
                                                    Ahr, Germany

                                Nothing noted...but this is just lovely now...
                       perfect 2009 fruit...oak nicely integrated...
                                          must look for some 2011
