Had the 2018 vintage - crisp and on the drier side yet with some fruity notes and not too mineral. — 3 years ago
Had a taste of this yummy late harvest Riesling today from Rheingau at work as a deductive tasing session. Candied nuts, petroleum, beeswax, dried grass on the nose but the palate is awesome - minerality, ripe apricot and apple cider with medium residual sugar and light acidity. The viscosity is really nice coating the mouth just enough to get the balance of sweet and sour taste. Thumbs up for the Old World Riesling Spatlese 👍. — 4 years ago
Riesling must be the only varietal where many of the entry level bottles can improve with some age (mostly speaking of German and Austrian) while also decreasing in price. Delicious and complex with eight years of age, displaying everything to be expected: white flowers, honey, petrol, wet rocks. The sweetness has perfectly integrated at this stage. $7! — 2 years ago
Mucha fruta en boca y nariz, poca azucar, balanceado, suave en el paladar. Elegante. — 4 years ago
2007 vintage. Very good example of mature Riesling, despite its slight leaker status. Dried pineapple, overipe nectarine, quince, honeycomb, burnt lemon peel, apricot, jasmine tea, birch bark. Ripping acidity and ripeness, with very long finish. Good quality, though probably nearing the peak before its inevitable decline (caveat emptor: cork was not in good shape, though not surprising given its age). — 5 years ago
Another pleasant surprise! I did not place this in Rheingau as it wasn't the warmest of the lot. That said the group did identify this correctly, but in my defense, Prinz isn't really traditional Rheingau according to them. Another producer to look out for.
Peach, kiwi, white flowers, minerals, and lees on the nose. Quite fruity on the palate, even a touch sugary, but balanced by herbaceous and fantastic minerality. There's a real balance and finesse that blew me away, especially when the region was revealed. I've had Prinz before, but the producer never really stood - I guess they really nailed 2017! — 4 years ago
Delicious and unusual light pineapple notes, good length and acidity. — 2 years ago
