Amazing quality. Very floral, balanced. But a bit new world like — 3 days ago
Quite herby, medicinal & earthy upon opening, gets better after a few hours (& muc better after 24h).
Beautiful mouthfeel, soft, velvety tannins, kirsch acidity, pure cherry juice. Doesn’t get fully rid of the herbal note though.
This is much more Spätburgundian vs the 2016, which was purer, crisper & much closer to the Pinots of Burgundy or Jura. — 6 days ago
King Frosch Pinot Blanc 2019, Germany
Pale lemon in color with a light green hue.
On the nose limes, green apples, grapefruits, spices, minerals, white pepper, sea salt, light earth and light vegetables.
Medium bodied with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.
Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, citrus, green apples, light honeysuckle, vegetables, spices and white pepper.
Soft finish with a nice length, and limes and spices.
This is a very nice Pinot Blanc from Nahe, Germany. Nicely balanced with nice acidity to pair with food. Nicely balanced with nice complexity and mouthfeel.
Feels like a softer Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire. Earthy with nice fruits.
Needs 45 minutes of airtime to soften up, so be patient.
I paired it with spicy salami and Brie cheese. Very tasty.
12.5% alcohol by volume.

I’ve had Enderle & Moll Pinot but, not their Rosé. Bought this after seeing @Severn Goodwin post. I like it. It needs to get some air but, more importantly, it needs to cellar for another year or two.
The color is richer - darker...shows more time in contact with skin.
The nose reveals; bubble gum, juicy & candied; strawberries, black cherries, black raspberries, plum, raspberries & cranberry extract. Red liqueured cola, red licorice, herbal notes, limestone minerals, chalkiness, grey volcanics, candle wax, potpourri with candied florals of; dark, red, purple & blue framed in violets & lavender.
The body rich & full with high viscosity. bubble gum, juicy & candied; strawberries, black cherries, black raspberries, plum, raspberries, pomegranate & cranberry extract. Red liqueured cola, mix of red & black licorice, herbal notes, limestone minerals, chalkiness, grey volcanics, dark, rich soil, candle wax, tree sap with bark shavings, mix of dark & white spice (ginger), potpourri with candied, perfumed, florals of; dark, red, purple & blue framed in violets & lavender. The acidity is a picture perfect Hawaii waterfall. The long, rich, lush, well polished & balanced finish is persistent for minutes while falling onto perfect mid spice.
One of the few German producers & regions I trust with this varietal. Climate change will continue to broaden Germany’s scope of good producers with this varietal. — 18 days ago
Fresh & sappy with great flow & nice precision. Ripe red berries & moist undergrowth, a touch of mushroom soup with cream & sprinkle of herbs. Not as funky & layered as the Liaison but poised, polished and a great entry level Pinot.
Brilliant value @ 13€! — 2 days ago
Yes baby. Wowzers. Sick nose. Just exuberant, intense, so floral and fruity. Like wow. Some herbal notes. Chestnuts and roses. Just so deep. So expressive. Gorgeous minerals. Sappy and juicy. So tangy, fresh, deep, incisive, clean and young. But wow long and elite structure. Huge fruit that has top notch clarity. Sour cherries. Like wow sour cherries. Rhini is so slept on. The shortstop of the Ziereisen Pinot lineup. This is the best Rhini I’ve ever had. Bonkers. So elegant and pure. Red Riesling and beyond. This is amazing. — 2 days ago

👄 This wine is dry and medium bodied. The acidity is high. The alcohol is medium. This wine has pronounced intensity of flavors including tart green apple, lemon peel, lime, apricot, passion fruit, gooseberry, wet stone, and honeysuckle. The finish is medium(+).
Quality of this wine is very good. It is very good because it has strong balance of acidity and fruit characteristics. It has a good length and intensity of aromas. It could be improved with greater complexity and tertiary flavor development that would increase the honeyed and dried fruit flavor potential. This wine may be consumed now, but will benefit from more time in the bottle.
