"Urglück" Ürziger Würzgarten Auslese Riesling 2015

Honeyed apricot bursting out of the bottle on the nose and following through the palate. Fits perfectly with some spicy tomato sauce & lamb sausage over polenta. Rich for sure, but extremely well balanced with a firm acid backbone. Generous and inviting right now . — 8 months ago

Weisserberg Riesling 2014

@Delectable Wine this is the Weisserberg bottling. Having enjoyed the 2015s (a very different vintage) while in Berlin a few years back, I grabbed a few of these 2014s online upon returning home. The first couple bottles were underwhelming - very austere, lacking fruit and with a degree of minerality and acid that nearly stripped the enamel off my teeth. This last bottle, however, enjoyed a couple years later, suggests the wines were simply opened too young. There is now fruit here in spades - ripe orchard fruits and citrus, and a delightful green herbal character. Delightful stony minerality, and at this age some petrol is starting to develop. Acid is still providing nice structure. Nothing life changing but I’m glad I was able to see this through it’s early-mid range development. — 4 months ago

Erdener Treppchen Spätlese Riesling 2007

Vintage 2007 | If a Merkelbach is 10+ years old, you cannot see the age in the colour... the smell gives a deep and enjoyable butter and butterscotch impression, pear, melon, minerals. A mouthfeel with a soft battle between sweet and acids while having a perfect balance. Incredible pleasing Riesling. — 5 months ago
