We all enjoy a Barbecue...that is...when we don't have to Barbecue!
Better to be a Guest than a Host!
Therefore...an invit from Daughter Number 1 to celebrate her birthday...and off we went to Wiesbaden on a warm summer evening.

I do like the Chardonnays from Austria.
The growers there seem to balance the creamy
fruit with rippling minerals..
This has a touch of exotic fruit...soft
toast...glossy...banana....just a delight to drink.

Cherries...sour cherries...giving it a thirst-quenching
feel...and just about right for a Barbecue. Tannins are
relatively supple...and the soft earthy taste of Pinot will
also benefit from a year or two in the cellar.
Schubert Marion's Vineyard
Pinot Noir 2009
Wairapapa, New Zealand
The name gives away the information...
a German winemaker producing competition for his
homeland.Black fruit...with blcky toasty tannins, Very
good balance...and the ripe fruit developed with a few
swirls and the cool evening air. Sweet at times...but
that it what gets us Pinot freaks...why would we want
austerity when we can get soft juicy thrills here.
Happy to watch someone else slaving over the Barbie.
