Schloss Johannisberger Grunlack Spätlese Riesling 2018

A wonderful Riesling from Rheingau Germany 🇩🇪. The nose had intense pear 🍐, green apple 🍏, lemon 🍋, peach 🍑, lime peel and apricot. The palate brought stone fruit, honey 🍯, hints of mineral (stones), honeysuckle, pineapple 🍍, crispy green apple 🍏 and lime. Overall a perfectly balanced wine with high acidity, off dry (smells sweeter than it tastes) with complexity. Pairs perfectly with spicy food, pork and cured meats. 😁 — a month ago

Langenlois Grüner Veltliner 2019

Bit of an opposite to the Köfererhof bottling. This is more substantial from the start if still following the varietally accurate lines. It's more lush and upfront and at the same time posess good depth and nice lingering aftertaste — 6 days ago

A leaky cork is always a stomach tightening event, unless… the wine is a German Riesling. I can’t tell you how many seeping, spongy corks have given way to reveal fresh-as-a-daisy wines for me over the years. This number from Schloss Schönborn was a perfect example. It was still greenish gold with incredible honeysuckle and wet pavement aromas, crystalline flavors of Asian pear, mandarin orange and honeysuckle. Zippy acidity, moderate sweetness, just everything you want from this genre. Would be all but impossible to peg at 17 years old if tasted blind. — 2 months ago

The attack and general profile of the wine shows the vitality and energy from 70% of wine being from this century, and the mid palate and finish displays more of the nuance, inflections, and complexity of older wines. Cool wine to taste.
