Dutch wine

IMG_6346

Who knew they made wine in Holland? I did. The very southern part of The Netherlands actually belongs to the Eiffel region, which is also famous for its German white wines. On the Dutch side of the border there are a mere handful of vineyards, no more than ten.

The one that I tried was a white wine, a Riesling, by vineyard Apostelhoeve. The taste was not bad at all, a little dry and a little acidic. It was a refreshing glass of wine that actually went quite well with the rabbit I had for main course. However, I found the smell a bit off-putting, like sweaty armpits.
