Petro Vaselo

Domaine Weinbach

Cuvée Ste. Catherine Alsace Grand Cru Schlossberg Riesling 2009

Similar notes to 65 weeks ago when I had the last one. A colour of pale to mid Gold. Delicate white florals initially with a touch of petro-chemical. Aromas of sweet pea (flower) and orange peel - citrus in general. As the wine developed, aromas of honeysuckle. On the palate notes of Quince with a sweetish honeyed end. One of the 1001 Wines from one of the world’s great Riesling vineyards which was originally planted and tended by monks in the 1500s. — 17 days ago

Château de Fargues

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2006

Initial aromas of apricot and a petro chemical smell (in a good way) and orange peel. Dubbed somewhat cruelly “Poor mans d’Yquem”. A delicious Sauternes from a producer who does not get a lot of publicity. With time it opened up with a palate of profound intensity showing Apricots, Cumquat jam, burnt toffee, and barley sugar. One of the 1001 wines to drink before you die. — 7 months ago

Château Pape Clément

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

15’ Château Pepe Clement. Should’ve decanted this for sometime. 15 needs a few more years in bottle. That being said… Petro soon opens up to this magnificent bottling. Orange blossom, pineapple, Honeysuckle. Zesty acidity. All spring out of the glass. — 3 months ago

Smith Madrone

Estate Bottled Napa Valley Riesling 2014


Surprised by the quality and varietal signatures of this NAPA Riesling! Could easily confuse it for a good dry German Riesling. That oily petro white stone flowers and complexity carrying over to a good balanced palate and finish. Impressed. — 6 months ago


Garuma Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Lime , grapefruit & guava fruit dominate this wine. Splash of watermelon & petro , wrapped in light acidity. Lingering citrusy finish. Fantastic! Edit- Don’t know if SB would’ve been my first guess blind🤷🏻‍♂️ — 3 years ago

Everything you said about this wine @Mike R Would’ve guessed VASO immediately based on the smell and first sip alone .
