Gruner run all night

Pale straw.  Meager cut grass and raw egg.  Fairly closed-in.  Wilted dark greens with cedar shavings tinged in match-head.  I try so hard to get my head around these hipster-offerings and I Just. Can’t. Do it.

You know how they used to say Viognier was “White wine for Red-drinkers”?  Well, this crap is Wine For Beer-Drinkers.  OK, ‘crap’ is a bit harsh, but this stuff is green, sour, weirdly-nuanced and funky.  And not in a good way.

Thin-salty on the palate, tongue-dry minerality and salty-licorice–although delicate these all are.  A raspberry-leaf-tea herbaceous sweet-bitterness dominates the finish.
