Thörnicher Ritsch Spätlese Riesling 2019

Wow ! Fucktastic out of the gate.

Nose is so evocative of the mosel. Blue slate. Green apple skin.

Palate is crystalline sugar. Bright mineral. Perfect green apple. Wow.

Luscious. Some apricot. Rich but balanced. Fantastic density.

Iconic mosel spatlese.

Bought from gas selections.

Thörnicher Ritsch Riesling Spätlese Feinherb 2015

3rd vintage of this producer via sommselect. has the 95 and the 10 and both were absolute knockouts for me. this one shows similar profile, great acid backbone, lovely minerality, honeysuckle, flowers, and some gasoline. not quite as WOW as the older versions but have a few bottles to lay down and guessing they’ll get there too. in love with this producer. — 2 years ago

Erdener Prälat Auslese Riesling 2008

Still a baby but something truly gorgeous at this point. Peach, kumquat, and mango balanced with rich acidity and notes of mint and honey. The finish is long and lush but still ends almost light on its feet. Wonderful. — 5 years ago

Thörnicher Ritsch Spätlese Trocken Riesling 1985

This is exactly what the best of Mosel is about. Intense, yet weightless. Fleeting, yet ageless. A true wine of contractions. Lemon curd, petrol, chamomile, hay, and herbs, followed by waves and waves of salinity and electric acidity. I practically wolfed down this entire bottle by myself. A one on the binary scale. — 16 days ago

Screaming. Can see how this might be otherworldly in 25 years

Day 3: even more unreal. Nectar, rainier cherries and apricots

VGW Chardonnay 2017

9.2

Rounding up here. Closer to 89-90 upon opening, but fleshed out and mellowed (in a good way) later in the day.

I’ve had the VGW, EGW, Eola Springs and the Richard Hermann and found the VGW to be the most different. The vein of simileties between these Chardonnays is a fair bit of reduction, but the others have this sweet-smoke to them…the VGW comes across more sweat/vegetal on the nose. I put it in a decanter and left it alone for an hour and it had shed that note and revealed grilled lemon and oyster shell in its place. Deep yellow in the glass with a bright yet mid weight profile. It’s not rich nor is it lean. Herb crusted yellow fruits and lemon oil dominate the palate. Stoney/mineral driven. I corked this after 6hrs and then revisited the next day and found that it was fairly similar to the last glass I had the evening before. Obviously a few years will benefit this, but if opening now, definitely give it a decant.

I’m not sure I can compare this Oregon Chardonnay to anything else. 13% ABV, and I suppose it’s very “Oregon” as I could see it being a bridge between OR and burgundy.

So glad to see your review on this one @Shay A ! I just grabbed 3 of these and have yet to try. Given the nod to Burgundian style, you think these can sit a couple years or do I need to consume quickly??

@Deborah M : Definitely no rush to consume. It’s ready to go as long as you can let it breathe for a while…took almost an hour in the decanter to blow off its reductive funk. Once it did, it was enjoyable.
