Horst Sauer Escherndorfer Lump Riesling Auslese 2016

Vintage 2016 / The 2011 auslese of this wine is the reason I visit the winery. When asked what grape they like better, winegrowers in #franken choose without hesitation for Silvaner. But the #riesling performs masterfully when it is ripe, awesome balance and that ‘touch’ of richness when you know at once: wow, I am drinking a Great Wine! Good balance, nice acidity. — 9 months ago

@Rene Van De Beek Op domein geproefd, Rene, mag zeker 5 jaar kelder in. / Young ausleses are utterly seductive!

Keeling-Schaefer

Puzzle Vine Picpoul Blanc 2016

Stumbled on this at an Arizona wine festival when visiting Phoenix. Winegrowers aren’t sure if Arizona is a good locale for this variety, but God bless them they are trying to get the viticulture right. Pale white, excellent clarity. Citrus notes in nose with a hint of vegetal or green pepper. Rounded mouthfeel, orange, orange peel and melon flavors with minerality. Dry, lemon peel, lime and slight astringency in finish. Decent stuff. 192 cases made — 4 months ago

Martín Códax

Gallæcia Rías Baixas Albariño 2016

The Martín Códax Winery was founded in 1986 by a group of winegrowers in Cambados, the capital of the Salnés Valle. All grapes are sourced from their own vineyards. Straw yellow color with aromas of white flesh fruit and floral scents. On the palate ripe apple, peach with lemon zest, some light spice with vivid acidity. The finish displays the crisp mineral on a lingering ending. Crisp and fresh. Very nice value! Tasting Sample. — 10 months ago

Retzstadter Langenberg Bacchus Kabinett Halbtrocken 2006

Vintage 2006 / Retzstadter Langenberg #Bacchus Kabinett / When I told my tailor Paul I visited winegrowers in Franken, the land of ‘bocksbeutel’ bottles, he said: hold on, went to his office and returned with this bottle. How about this? He asked. I thought: 2006... that wine must me dead, Paul, I am sorry. Well take it with you and see, he told me. I put it in the fridge, looked suspiciously at the screw cap... and opened this #Franken wine a few hours later. Colour of old gold, not bad at all... Sniff, sniff. A smell with hints of tangerine, honey, a rose garden. I looked better at the label and then saw: halbtrocken. And kabinett. That means there is residual sugar in this wine (‘restsüsse’). I sip... and am amazed: it is still correct, more than that: it is a joy to drink! In the smell also citrus, gets better with aeration. How amazing wine can be... grow older... and still be vibrant. Lovely experience. / Bacchus is a crossing of riesling and sylvaner and Müller thurgau. — 9 months ago

Auslese Riesling 2016

Vintage 2016 A winegrowers life is full of challenges. The grapes for this wine were harvested very late, it was meant to become an #eiswein #icewine but there came no frost 🤨 so it became an #auslese. It is a God drink with impeccable balance and a frivolous smell with peach and apricot! #ahr Great effort! — a year ago
