René Sparr White Blend Alsace Aoc One 2007

Member Review by Jimmy Cocktail:

The wine named One from René Sparr is exactly the kind of wine you expect when you think of a wine done in an Alsatian style except that this is a blend rather than a wine from only one varietal. This wine is a blend of 28% Muscat, 39% Sylvaner, 9.5% Pinot Blanc, 16% Riesling, and 7.5% Klevener de Heiligenstein (an Alsatian designation of the Savagnin grape). This wine is a pale yellow in color but not so pale as to be almost colorless. When you first breath in this wine, there is a light floral scent and then a big blast of wildflower honey. You really expect this wine to be sweet but that is totally wrong. There is a light acidity up front with a hint of honey and then a mineral finish that doesn't linger. I really liked this wine, it would be a nice diversion on a hot afternoon or a great accompaniment for a summer time picnic.
