Maximin Herrenberg GG Riesling 2017

Glowing liquid gold. No doubt, my favorite shade of riesling. We're in for some expression, maybe even a smile. Smells like can of Sprite and sticky Valencia orange slices, beads of juice crawling down your palms. Tastes like starfruit and lime-aid sherbert, bitter grapefruit, thyme, and honey. Pinnacle acid and mouth coating viscosity. Long as the summer sun. — a month ago

Longuich Maximin Herrenberg 1896 Trocken Alte Reben Riesling 2018

Pings your nostrils with sequence of subtle vibrations at hummingbird frequency. Lime, orange blossom, burnt match. Then a slow slip into my absolute favorite honeyed dimension. I love when honey shows up - it's one of my favorite notes in wine. Here it changes the direction from steely stern face to a textured viscous warm smirk. — 4 months ago

1896 Riesling Erste Lage 2016

Amazing… and hard to explain. With time the bouquet is intense with mineral, floral and even tropical fruit aromas. Melons and lychee and stone. On the palate it is dense but lean, a product of the intense mineralilty and acids and a bit of phenolic bitterness. But then this fills out to be broad and giving and drenched in sweet acid, finishing with savory and salty elements.

Day 4 a fascinating petrol emerges. This is like a world class orchestra that’s just tuning up.

Ritsch Grosses Gewachs Riesling 2018

Citrus spray in slo mo - like a 90's OJ ad on Channel 4. Or the one for all-natural counter cleaner. Bergamot, clementine and bitter lime pith. Granny smith and cool flinty smoke. A hanging honey note transitions without much of one into a textured Meade-like experience. Riesling shines with honey. Doesn't give but for a ruby grapefruit bitter bite.

Excellent in smaller doses because damn acid can tire a fella.
