Neumagener Rosengartchen Von den Terrassen Riesling 2021

Wow. So classic.

Nose: green apple flower. Aerated minerals. White flowers. Gorgeous nose. More confectionery as it opens.

Palate: such fine minerals. Perfect echoes of green apple. Razor sharp. Almost like still champagne from Riesling. As this opens. Richer. Really delicious. Super juicy. Internal aromatics approaching elite status.

Density is coming out. Almost chewy. .

Finish is intense. Mineral. Dense apple. Acids. Rich. Sweet minerals.

Sori Bricco Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

This wine is more about the single-vineyard terroir than the fruits. It has earthy and mineral flavors. it opened up after an hour of decanting. I prefer the multi-vineyard Diamond Mountain Cabernet from this producer. — 2 months ago

Sauvignon Blanc II Trocken 2022

Damn, the Germans have just laid down a great hand of cards in the Sauvignon Blanc game.
More tropical and spice notes than Loire or NZ, actually, strangely the nose is more similar (yet more elegant and restrained) to the finer North American SBs I've tried. Minerality is medium and hard to pick out a soil type. Acidity is on the lower side.
Flavours follow the nose with pineapple, pear, allspice, Rainier cherry.
I favored the bottle that was open for an hour+. The new bottle gave me a very 2022 sense (ie: a young tart)

Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg Kabinett Riesling 2018

Peak of summer is Kabi time!
Fresh & light yet punching some much flavour!
After the first naphtha nose blows off this shows amazing purity & freshness with fresh vineyard peaches, underripe apricots, a flowery whiff, some tangerine peel. And cool, slightly spicy, slate minerality. Very enticing!
Not exactly weightless as some can be (warm vintage), this delivers beautiful purity of fruit balanced off with zingy acidity. Nicely poised & balanced. Very elegant and highly drinkable.
This is really good stuff!

9.4

Amazing nose. Mid to late season very ripe cherries, cranberry bog, white chocolate, and some citrus rind. Gorgeous. Spice and violets as well. Palate is rich and tense at the same time with gorgeous sweet cherry fruit and unreal purity and freshness. Super silky and sweet with great acidity and mineral sweet cherry finish. Now with air there is gorgeous blackberry and black raspberry. Unreal red cherries and spice. Really lifted nose. Palate is much redder than the nose lets on and has really engaging minerality. So pure and well made. Almost a 9.5. — 10 days ago

Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg Auslese Riesling 2015

Medium lemon yellow . Ripe lemon , white flowers , camomile, touch of wet slate and subtle petrol notes . Very elegant and precise . On the palate light and weightless with high acidity balancing the moderate sweetness . Ripe citrus , grapefruit , baked apple , wet stones , really intense and mouthwatering . Long and perfectly poised , honied finish . Young but drinking well , and will be fun to follow over the next 10-15 years . — 2 months ago
