Juliusspital Silvaner 2014

Tom Elliot

There’s nothing in this world quite like a fine Franconian Silvaner. They are so distinctively different from all other white wines, with their own universe of aromas and flavors. When grown particularly in its central area and often in the eastern district, salty sea air, oyster shell, and yellow plum predominate as with this perfect, 7 year old Premier Cru example. Make no mistake, Franconia offers world-class, dry white wine through Silvaner, and other varieties too. Pinot Noir here can be equally impressive. These wines are hard to find outside of Germany but well worth the search. — 2 months ago

Würzburger Stein Riesling Erste Lage 2017

One of my favorite wine all over. Complex and long, super fresh but very well balanced acidity. Hard to describe the nose but fresh and a bit thick with some lemon peel but fresher. Very energized taste, fresh, balanced some citrus and maybe a bit of goose perry, a lot of minerals and wet stone, a bit of saltiness from the sea. Nearly a bit carbonated feeling since it is so happy. A bit of lime too and a long complex bitterness in the after taste. An awesome wine, nice on its own but even better with some fish with butter where the acidity is singing together with the fat and fsihness. Also goes well with some sour milk which is usually hard. — a year ago

Würzburger Stein GG Silvaner 2015

Jörgen Lindström Carlvik

Austrian Gruner Veltliner notes with creamy additions, this is both aromatic and positively shy. Pure and clean with spice, white peach and slate flavors, this youngster stretches nicely on finish where gentle bitterness emerge. Easily thru 2025. — 4 years ago
