Ribeauville Vin de l'A. Grand Reserve 2004 Bergheim wine review by (PB)

This Alsatian is a light golden nectar with a bouquet of sweet spice, melon and tropical fruit.

Palate--this is an off dry wine which gives a somewhat flabby presence at first impression but then the acid seems to appear suddenly. Mixed tropical fruit flavors take center palate with a lingering tropical fruit compote finish that is really tasty.

It's a blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris. This would pair great with hard to pair foods like spicy oriental, Thai or Indian cuisine. It was a gift to Billy of this blog so we don't have a price point but wouldn't be esy to find anyway. We raised a glass with thankfulness.
