2010 Pierre Sparr Extrēm Riesling

Clear, pale-plus gold appearance. Medium intensity nose of citrus and stone fruit. Off-dry, high acidity, and medium body; lemon and grapefruit dominate in the mouth along with agave nectar and a bit of minerality. Persistent, tart finish. Overall good; straightforward and quite drinkable; I’m having this with a saag soy paneer. 12% alcohol.

$25 at Legacy Liquor Store—first time I’d been here. It’s expansive, and the selection seems pretty good, though there’s definitely an emphasis on booze other than wine.

See Vins Sparr.
