No wine with dinner (dubu kimchi) Sat as I was picking up Betsy at LaGuardi a late, but Sunday the 2014 FX Pichler Loibner Berg Gruner Veltliner Smarag d with grilled swordfish, corn/cape gooseberry/basil salad, quinoa, and cap rese. Really full-bodied GV, green apple and peach with white pepper, smoke , and herb. Acidity is enough to keep it from being ponderous, big yet bala nced wine. Yet from a food matching standpoint I wished I had brought up a Federspiel instead. B+/B
Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine,
B a good wine, C drinkable. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a p
arty where it was only choice.Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivi
ty, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
