Peaches and limes. Great Riesling as usual from Keller — 6 days ago
Star bright pale straw gold. Inviting nose and palate of underripe yellow apple (drinking partner says Granny Smith), a touch of honeysuckle, and a hint of mineral effervescence on the finish. Medium plus acidity balances the Kabinett-level fruit perfectly. It’s Loosen. It’s Mosel. It’s VDP. It’s among the best examples at its price point. Drink now through 2026 with just about anything. — 4 days ago
Lorcher Krone Riesling Kabinett 1983 Rheingau, Germany
It is always interesting to drink these kind of old wines, but it is never a sure thing. This 38 year old Riesling is not at its peak for a while now.
Nice deep golden in color.
Medium bodied with high acidity.
Dry to off dry on the palate with lemons, citrus, limes, green apples and spices.
Tangy finish with limes.
This 38 year old is tangy and interesting, but not as complex as I wanted it to be.
Good by itself and better with food. A little oxidized on the nose, but not on the palate. Has a light cider feel.
Wasn't that pleasant right out of the bottle, but opened up nicely after 20 minutes of airtime.
Not balanced anymore, but still interesting and easy to drink.
I paired it with spicy Ahi Tuna and seaweed salad.
Bottled in September of 1984. A small production of only 3,690 bottles.
10% alcohol by volume.
89 points. — 15 days ago
