Day 97 – coming down a little

Domaine Bruno Sorg Riesling Pfersigberg 2015

Another bottle from Sorg, and I’m astonished to find it is only the second I have opened since the walk began. The domaine holds both Gewürztraminer and Riesling vines in the Pfersigberg Grand Cru, and this Riesling is steely and flinty yet savoury and complex. Purchased at the vineyard for 16€ four years ago. Do I prefer the luscious Burn or the stripped-down Sorg approach? It’s a bit like asking if I prefer the Bill Evans Trio or The Necks. Same ingredients, different results. I’m delighted that both exist for me to enjoy depending on my mood or circumstance.
