    Default [TN] My first Frankenwien ('07 Wirsching Scheurebe)

    Over the years, I have occasionally lamented my situation in comparison
    to Dale's, as I can't generally go to my local retailer and find Coche
    Dury Meusaults discounted to $10 for a 375. Yes, I can buy over the
    Internet, but my "buy local" ethic is strained by such moves. So, it is
    with pleasure that I note that our one local retailer of note has been
    improving its selection dramatically. It now stocks two Edmunds St.
    John wines ('08 Fairbairn Syrah and '08 Bone Jolly) as well as a good
    selection of Oregon Pinots and other goodies. Even more surprising,
    though, was the sight of a bocksbeutel on their shelves:

    2007 Hans Wirsching Scheurebe Kabinett Iphopfer Kalb
    nose: petrol, flowers, lemons, minerals
    palate: light, good acidity, dry, crisp finish

    Very light and refreshing with a beguiling nose and a dry mouthfeel.
    Very enjoyable, and how appropriate to have Frankenwein shortly after
    Halloween! ;-)

    I've only had a Scheurebe in Europe. Never seen one on the shelves
    here but like you I tend to try to buy locally.

    Eek!! I just noticed the typo in my title. If Michael P or Anders T
    reads this, I *do* know how to spell Wein! ;-)

    No problem at all!

    BTW, "Wien" is German for Vienna (my birth & home city), but you
    probably know that quite well ... ;-)

    > Wien an der Wien!


    Just to explain this to those unfamiliar with Vienna:

    Vienna lies not only on the banks of the river Danube (everybody
    knows, of course), but also on the bank of a river called "Wien"
    like the city itself. In fact, although it's called "Wienfluss" in
    German ("River Wien"), it's not a river at all, more a beck or
    ditch.

    Take a look:

    <http://www.diekelten.at/WienflussStadtpark.555.jpg>

    Or try google pics searching "wienfluss".

    So "Wien an der Wien" means "Vienna on the (banks of the river)
    Vienna".

    I've never had their Scheurebe, but liked their Riesling and Silvaner.
    Very well respected producer.
    And while I'm in a market with occasional great closeouts, I've missed
    the $10 Coche.
