Mosel Saar Ruwer Riesling

Jakob Tennstedt


-Rugged Riesling-

Served with the Vinloq System
👀Dark yellow golden honey. Unfiltered
👃Sour citrus, wax, savory herbs with tea & mint
👅Honeyed, candied stone fruit. Ripe apples. Very herbal with pronounced acidity. Salty. The finish is dry, long, & delicious
So interesting. So expressive. Superb clarity. Singular flavor profile likely due to botrytis and long elevage. Just…wow

The remaining wine was Slow Decanted with Vinloq & refrigeration

Sampled this on 2 more occasions

DAY 15
👃Bold, distinctive & precise
👅Probably would not guess riesling in a blind tasting. Tea, cognac & sherry all make appearances. Bruised/ripe apple is only perceived sweetness
Virtually unchanged in 15 days. Feels very sturdy. Probably would be an interesting wine to cellar.

Jakob Tennstedt is a new winemaker in the Mosel. He biodynamically farms 50-100 year old vines he restored on steep blue slate terraces. This wine was so laborius to make that he will not do it again. I am glad I was able to try it this time and it gives me motivation to try his other wines🥂

Unterstenberg Faß 12 Riesling Grosse Lage 2017

Very nice Riesling from the reliably delicious and interesting Peter Lauer. But honestly slightly disappointing relative to what I was hoping for. Doesn’t quite have the acid-driven precision and clarity as some of the other bottlings I’ve had from him. Still nice, obviously. — a month ago

17’s can be low in acid.

St. Urbans-Hof Goldtröpfchen Spätlese Riesling 2016

So clean and balanced. Not a complex wine, but just a perfect balance of only a mild sweetness followed by minerality and mild acidity. A Golden Mean in all its flavors. White fruit flavors. A paradigm of Mosel Riesling. Extraordinary QPR. — 16 days ago

Saarburger Rausch Auslese Riesling 2002

Good sweet Riesling, with a rich fruit flavor and only moderate sweetness. Nice balance but not extraordinary. Age is perfect, and color and nose were excellent. — a month ago

Perfect lemon rind with bright minerality popping off the tongue — pair it with a buttery sauce, shellfish or any seafood — 2 months ago
