This last week I drank a 2007 Pierre Sparr Alsace One that ran me a little over $10, I think.
This isn't a true Riesling. It's a blend of Sylvaner, muscat, riesling, pinot blanc, and Klevener de Heiligenstein.
So what's Klevener de Whatever? According to wikipedia, it's "a designation used on Alsace wine made from pink-skinned Savagnin Rose grapes, a variety in the Traminer family, but which is less aromatic than Gewürztraminer." This is the only grape that's restricted to a geographic area of Alsace.
The little dry to sweet chart on the back of the bottle has this at the far dry end. I'll agree with that. I tend to prefer dry to sweet wines. This wasn't bad and didn't taste like grapefruit juice like some dry Rieslings, but at the same time it didn't have a lot of subtlety of flavor.
This wasn't bad; it would probably be good with grilled fish. Just not the wine for me.
