1896 Riesling Erste Lage 2018

Pop and pour. A bit under a year since my last btl. This is stunning. Coiled density, suave personality, loads of dense lemon oil and peach. Fantastic acidity and mineral depth, together with a very long finish. Voluptuous, generous and elegant. — 17 days 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. — 5 months ago

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. — 2 months ago

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.
