Alto Adige - Südtirol Müller-Thurgau 2017

Very European label. Color of, well pee in the bowel. Maybe a bit brassy. Smells of wood and sweet grass. Maybe some wet rocks and hint of scotch. Flavors are clean and unexpected. Bit of butter to go with the candy lemon peel, gooseberry and ripe pears. There is a savory strange element that really gives it a specialness. A kinda broth-y, Unami. Smooth on the tongue, velvety even. This is a trippy white wine. Kinda reminiscent of some CA Chard, but way less boring. — 12 days ago

Rheinschiefer Riesling 2015

This is the most basic riesling by the family Müller. Only costs € 5,60 and you are expected to drink real fast. Like within a year. But nothing is more true. 5 years later it is still a great glas. Fruit has ripened, more complex. Fresh but with a bit of caramel. Nice acids. — 9 days ago

Scharzhofberger Auslese Riesling 1976

Tasted blind, from two combined bottles. Dark gold color. Hazy in the glass because our host wanted to include the fine sediment in the pours. Great nose. Notes of apricot, petrol, rocks and stones, some spice. Sweet impact in the mouth, packs a wallop with its still present light acidity. Guessed 60’s-70’s German. Over the evening this grew and grew, delivering some Wow moments for everyone. — 22 days ago

you literally combined the bottles? What if one were off? Wouldn’t that ruin the other?

I made the same comment to our host but he knew how to approach it. All the wines were combined after lengthy decants to be sure they were good to be combined. He felt the old wines showed better by complementing each other in the service. In the end he was right.

Wallufer Oberberg Müller-Thurgau Kabinett trocken 2016

Give this a big sniff. Honey. The orange blossom honey straw at the farmers market. It's suggestively sweet but without the slightest bit of residual sugar. Black peppered honey, coriander, and pineapple. A light weight - I"m guessing 10.5% - 11.5% ABV. B — 15 days ago

Never tasted the '17 Liaison, my bottles went directly into storage, the '17 'Basis' aka Baden PN was outstanding, hence I was confident the Liaison was likely off the hook. I'll find out in a few years after it settles a little.

Yeah, I'll my my '18's in a few weeks, I may sample one. Did have an '18 'Basis' in Aug, very tasty. I generally use the Baden PN to give me a read on all the upper tier bottles, same with the rosé. They are usually good indicators.

Bopparder Hamm Engelstein Kabinett Riesling

Vintage 2015 | beautiful smell with marsipan, bananas and minerality. Medium weight, quite a lot of sugar and honey impression. Actually a bit to sweet to combine it with the shrimp salad. Heads up to the next combination. — 9 days ago

Great colour, smell and taste. Full taste and dark colour make this wine really special. We had anno 2013 so a 7 year old wine which was fabulous. — 16 days ago

Bürgergarten "Im Breumel" Großes Gewächs Riesling 2017

Way too young, but still phenomenal. On the nose:.lime, soft yeast, flowers and baking soda,wet stone...so aromatically dense. On the palate: excellent acidity, otherworldly dry-extract, with lime, sour guava, salt, loads of wet stone, and a touch of yeastiness. Wish I could keep my hands off these! — 3 days ago

Rad and refreshing white from Alto Adige. Grassy with vaguely tropical green fruit notes: quince, kiwi and sour apple jolly rancher. — 5 days ago
