This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Riesling, Chardonnay and Yuzu

Dinner at Ming Fu (明福餐廳) in Taipei.

2007 Willi Schaefer Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spätlese - much sweeter than I expected from a spätlese.  Still very enjoyable.  Unfortunately this was served a little warm.

2007 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay - buttery, oaky, green apple, mineral.  Drinking well now.

Drinks back at my apartment.

Bijofu Yuzu Liqueur (bottled August 2010) - two years after bottling, this no longer tasted as fresh as it did when I bought it 2 years ago.  Instead the flavors of honey - one of the ingredients - has become more prominent.  On the palate it now tastes more like candied lime or aged lemon marmalade.  I made the comparison with aged, oxidized Chardonnay.  We wondered how it would taste if we froze it and made it into a Slurpee…
