Edi And The Gang

Back in the early part of the last century there was a comedian, dancer actor called Eddie Cantor.The spelling is completely different...but the name attracted me.

Edi Kante La Bora di Kante Chardonnay 2006
Friaul, Italy 
Delightful creamy texture...nutty...fresh acidity...lovely balance to this wine...and opened up well in large glass. Almost forgot....smell good as well. Oak not too dominant...very pure. Aged for 24 months in old barrels then aged in bottle 5 years before release.
Points 17.25


 
Ziereisen Gutedel SteingrĂĽble 2012
Baden, Germany

After the '10 hoch 4' 2012...this is a step down of course...but then again...costs only a 10th of the big brother. Salty, a touch bitter...not negative...pears...loads of chunky minerals and some citrus fruit. A little young maybe....but already giving good value.
Points 16


Wittmann Riesling Kirchspiel GG 2012
Rheinhessen, Germany
'Kindermord' you could say...but I am on Wittmann trip.
Citrus dominant...mandarine fruit...really lively acidity. Waxy...bitter-sweet finish.
Points 17.5
