Boku Heim tasting Midweek tasting

Two wines are featured in this weeks tasting. Two totally different white wines. A mineral-driven  Riesling from the Rheingau and a buttery, full bodied Chardonnay. Anyway both are real value-for-money wines.

1. Riesling "trocken" 2007 from Weingut Prinz von Hessen - good - €10
rather pale hue, pure minerality on the nose, hints of quinces, obvious german acid structure, very distinctive, a bit short.

2. Chardonnay "Barrique" 2006 from Weingut Esterhazy - good - €7,99
peaches and pears, buttery mellow nose underlined with well integrated oak flavors, bit one dimensional, oak tannins not fully integrated on the palate, soft, could do with a bit more acid structure.
