Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Kabinett Riesling 2019

Raaaacing acid. Really nice, but not overly complex; could probably stand for more sugar for balance. — 25 days ago

Zeltinger Schlossberg Schmitt Auslese Riesling

2015 vintage. Intriguing combo of botrytis notes and fruits/florals. Apricot, white nectarine, honeysuckle, honeycomb, fenugreek, decaying gardenia, jasmine, yellow apple, poached pear. Very long finish. — 4 years ago

Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling 2015

Viscous with acidity that cuts through. Nice citrus with some tropical fruit flavors and petrol. Some minerality in there as well. Enjoyable for sure. — 4 years ago

Kabinett Riesling 2016

If I’ve found a sweet spot it’s definitely value Kabinett Riesling - $15-$25. Show me another white grape this consistent and with complexity in this price range. Much thanks is owed to Terry Thiese and the Skurnick team for making wines available from producers like Jakob Schneider, Carl Loewen, Muelenhoff, Selbach-Oster, and Muller-Catoir. Each have a modestly priced Kabinett showing plenty of acid and explosive smokey citrus fruit. This week’s was Jakob Schneider - just off dry with flinty, flowery, ginger notes. Great for pre-dinner snacking. — 4 years ago

@Alex Lallos it just tastes so good intrinsically. Unlike chardonnay, for instance, which is a blank slate. It needs an expert winemaker to make it sing. Riesling can be amazing on its own.

Agreed. A lot of grosses gewachs are more complex and just as massive as grand cru white burgs

Great nose. Typical aged Mosel nose. Caramel, botrytis, slate and so so clean. Big peach and citrus. Rich and unctuous like 06 can be and very sweet but nice acidity and freshness. One dimensional as this is Selbach-Oster. But a nice dimension. — 3 years ago

Anrecht Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling 2016

Had at Spoke Wine in Somerville MA. Fun sweet yet with good citruis on the pallette. I'm not typically a huge reisling fan but for a nice dessert wine I did really appreciate it. Would look into these again going forward. — 4 years ago
