Holzfass Trocken Spätburgunder 2014

This 2014 is a lovely Spätburgunder with lots of Burgundian character. Showy fruit on the nose (cherry, rhubarb, orange peel) with hints of anise, bergamot and baking spice. Very Chambolle-like. Outstanding. — a year ago

BattenfeldSpanier Am Schwarzen Herrgott Auslese Riesling 2017

Ok. Not sure when I’m going to even taste this the nose is so good. Crunchy confectionary sugar. Perfect apricots. 10/10 intensity. Wow.

Palate is even better. You need to close your eyes to avoid sensory overload. Perfect peaches on a summers day. Dense but notthick. So bright. Not at all cloying.

This has the density and flavor profile of great auslese but it tastes more like wine if that makes any sense. Not thick. Not cloying. Not unctuous. It just is what it is and that is is amazing.

The flavor profile is what you’d expect. But what makes this special is it’s so clean and precise.

The finish is even better than a perfect peach. A perfect peach is too acidic and tooth scraping. This is just a hair shy of that level of acidity. You get that perfect fruit acid balance without the tooth pain.

A masterpiece.
