Not much wine over the weekend

I was in Amsterdam over the weekend, so perilously little wine was consumed. However, it was my birthday on Thursday and at the ‘large-formats’ party we held we popped a magnum of

Riesling Singerriedel 2004



. This was quite delicious, quite large-scale but with good acidity. It had a typically Austrian white pepper aroma to it as well as late harvest Riesling characteristics. It was very nice, but I really don’t think it would be for ageing.
