Could be mistaken for a Mersault. Very precise and lifted nose. Discrete reduction. Juicy mid palate that is almost like a top condrieu. — 8 months ago

Subtle and classy dry Riesling from the premier cru Kögl vineyard. Exactly what you would hope for: gun flint, river stones, yellow apple, Meyer lemon, and that classic Austrian salty/mineral edge. $25
More info: harvested late October/early November. Unoaked. 1200 cases made, only 70 imported into the U.S.
From what I can gather: Salomon releases different versions of Riesling from the Kögl vineyard, however due to labeling restrictions the 2016 is the final vintage that will see a “Ried Kögl”. Evidently all versions moving forward must be called “Steiner Kögl”. — 5 months ago
Sneak peaking on Wittmanns 2019 for the Morstein launching on thursday. There is no doubt that the German Rieslings remains one of the under priced gems of the wine world.
The Westhofener presents a pronounced intense nose, youthful but complex and nuanced aromas, well defined characters that is playing in several clusters. Lemon zest, white pears and plum juice followed by ginger and a prominent wet stone minerality over a savoury and salty canvas. A cut through acidity drives the palate through an intense fruit profile and a solid finish.
Paired with pan fried Salomon filet, creamed cabbage and a soy and brown butter vinaigrette with plenty of lemon juice. — 7 months ago
