Frisk og litt syrlig. Passer supert til skalldyr — 4 years ago
Tried to round up as many ‘15 Reisling as I could. I prefer rs to the Trocken style (not that I dislike it) & this rich feinharb hits the sweet spot- it’s that triangle of acidity, sweetness & fruit but it’s so perfect in its balance. And the wife likes it. Very, very good, especially for under 18$ — 4 years ago
Flint, floral and citrus on the nose. Delicious concentrated fruit. Long and beatiful exit. Was extremely pleasent alongside sashimi. — 5 years ago
Woo Hoo... First one to post this bottle in Delectable 😁
On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening to enjoy Andris Nelsons conducting the BSO in their first complete performance of Wagner's "Das Rheingold" at this venue, very exciting! We enjoyed "Die Walküre" last summer, so even though they're playing out of sequence, we're blessed to hear it none the less.
Tonight we have a trendy German SB, a very light citrus aroma, racy palate that does not back down, maybe some red current in there? Blind I would be hard pressed to guess as SB. Nice wine to begin the evening. — 6 years ago
This smells intensely of sage and sage flowers, along with passion fruit, grapefruit and elder flower. (“I am Scheurebe, hear me roar!”) Given such a resounding opening gambit, the wine proves (relatively!) discreet on the polished palate, turning in a coolingly minty and melony direction while preserving such luscious fruit as well as herbal pungency as the aromas promised. The terrifically-sustained finish is infectiously juicy, exhibiting overt but perfectly-integrated and supportive sweetness. Sage, grapefruit zest and smoky black tea accents serve for invigorating counterpoint. On occasion, the Rumpfs have demonstrated that these vines in the Dautenpflänzer can yield Scheurebe capable of playing in the Pfeffingen or Müller-Catoir league – and this is one of those delicious occasions. (On the heels of this beauty – on November 2, 2018 – I tasted a dry 2018 Scheurebe trocken, from fruit harvested in mid-September, that was already improbably delicious; but the Dautenpflänzer Scheurebe grapes from 2018 had been picked only a few days before I visited!)

Ripe sweet apple & peach balanced by razor sharp lemony acidity with a mineral flinty streak. Great balance & good length. Really lovely wine. — 6 years ago
