The Society's Vin d'Alsace 2008

Produced for The Wine Society by Hugel, this is a blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Muscat and Sylvaner.

Top-class producer, entry-level wine, but a good one. Not overly rich, but aromatic and refreshing. A good introduction to Alsace wine, but lacks the character of the individual grapes.

Like the bottle says, it would indeed make a good 'house white', but I wish it was a pound or two cheaper.
