The wine was equally good, a 2007 La Moynerie Pouilly Fume from Michel Redde et Fils. Perfectly clear wine in the glass and a nose bursting with peach skins and wild herbs. The initial flavors were tart peach and some tarragon. Wildly wonderful acid in this wine and it totally filled the mouth with a crisp feeling. Halfway through the first large sip the minerality of this wine kicked into high gear. Except for the initial peach flavors this could have been a good Chablis. There was a bit of lushness and body near the end before the acid and minerals kicked back end for the finish. This wine was alive and having a great time and it was just about perfect with the cod.
This wine was a fill in wine - I was two bottles short of twelve mixed bottles to get a case discount so I picked this to fill out the case. So far it's been the star of the entire case and I find it amazing that this wine and the Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc discussed a couple of posts below were made from the same grape.
