Recommend something new please!

What do you drink when you want to drink something new?

Something that is not a monster nor a softie...something refreshing and 'rich'...

Something Alsatian?

I feel like I've been harping on about how wines from the Alsace are great far too much this week, but it certainly matches your request - good acidity, oily and mineral, not overpowering and not too delicate, a good Reisling or Pinot Blanc would suit quite nicely i bet.

Here's my latest find for the "refreshing" category, though not so much "rich"....Godello from Spain. Was just introduced to it by a new local wine shop and have already been back for more. Closest comparison I can make is to an Austrian Gruner Veltliner. The same region of Spain grows Mencia, if you'd like a somewhat obscure red option to match.

Refreshing and rich... You didn't say it had to be white, so I'll buck the trend.

How about a classic... a Valpolicella Ripasso?
Refreshing red fruit of Corvina and friends, but given a little extra stuffing by passing over the lees of an Amarone.
