2006 FIFA World Cup Germany Riesling (Pfalz), 2005 Vintage, Family Mart Special Edition

Wow, spin-off marketing is taken to the farther possible extreme in Japan. Tash and I picked up a 1300 yen (about 11 dollars) bottle of convenience store World Cup Riesling (plonk) after dinner to sip chez moi. Well, for 11 bucks, not bad. They even show you on the label where Germany is on a map of the world! A bit of acidity, fruity. Ok, let's face it, it's just not that interesting or complex, but ok on a Friday night. I bought it for the gimmick and the novelty. But it does have the official World Cup hologram! But no Goleo Lion #6 mascot!
