Ponga Sauvignon Blanc – New Zealand – 2017

Passion fruit and crisp apple that brightens this up and makes it slightly unique from other offerings and even other vintages of the same wine. Drinks well by itself, but will be fussy to pair with, so stick with classic fish.

S.A. Prüm Essence Riesling – Germany – 2017

About the same as the prior year’s vintage, but perhaps with less grapefruit. Mild, pleasant and utilitarian, but a fine riesling from Germany which always ranks high in my book. Perfect Goldilocks level of sugar. Those who are not reez-obsessed like me would likely rate this a half star less.
