What did you think of the Leasingham?

The Leasingham was alright, kind of underwhelming.  The Trimbach was their basic Alsacian riesling.

The Leasingham Bin 7 [which is owned by Constellation] can be erratic [like Constellation] if you get a chance try a Grossett Polish Hill from 2005 had one last night and it was excellent.  Grossett has won the Best Riesling Maker title in Germany and is regarded internationally as one of the best Riesling Makers
