Another of the catch-up-on-tasting-notes posts (see intro HERE if that doesn’t make sense)

Josmeyer-001Josmeyer Mise du Printemps Pinot Blanc 2014, Alsace, France (£10.95 The Wine Society)
The lightly salty edge here plus the hint of yeastiness is very similar to good Vinho Verde, but this is fleshier in style, with a hint of pear, and a long, juicy finish. S-

 

Weissburg-001Hofmann Weisser Burgunder Trocken ‘Urmeer’ Appenheimer 2014, Rheinhessen, Germany (£13.95 Slurp.co.uk)
Starts off quietly, then opens up to show a mineral-tinged grapefruit  character, with an extra layer of creamy, leesy character. Really nice style, juicy and fresh, lithe and tasty. S(-)

 

Blind Spot PG-001Blind Spot Pinot Gris 2014, King Valley, Australia (£7.50 The Wine Society)
Rounded and quite plush, really nicely textured, with pear, nectarine and lightly stewed gooseberry flavours, just enough acidity to sustain the style. B(+)
