Rheinhessen Trocken Riesling 2018

My first Keller. I get it. Tropical (pineapple), some citrus, saline, nice acidity but not over top, long finish. Classy. Way too young, but I couldn’t wait. 2018. — a month ago

Deep and rich. Pure and persistent riesling fruit. A little richer than what I had in mind and maybe a couple percent redisudal sugar (still mostly dry). Beautiful wine but I would have given it more time if I could — 12 days ago

really good stone fruit and soft acidity. Fruit sweetness belies that it is a trocken. — 13 days ago

Abts E de Riesling 2017

This bottle looked a little suspect when I first opened it. It just didn't have that anticipated tightness in the nose - lacks the residual flint scents from spontaneous fermentation. Feeling a little disappointed, especially after my previous experience with this batch of bottles (see the last time I had this), I decided I wouldn't even taste it and let the wine air until lunch some 4 hours later. Lo and behold, the wine decided it would sing. Powerful aromas of pineapple, lemon, and herbs. Dig deeper and you can sense the floral and stony elements. There's a certain warmth to the nose, which in a way rang some alarm bells on bottle condition (the 17' Abtserde also typically leads with stone and chalk characters), but it does provide for some intrigue. The palate is explosive, with incredible intensity and depth; and to quote a friend, "all held together by rapier-like acidity and palpable phenolic texture". Endless finish. A stunning wine, despite my postulation that this isn't an pristine bottle. — 2 months ago

@romo I'm kinda biased too, but it certainly wasn't bad - just not "right" in my eyes. Happy that others on the table loved it 😁

It’s unfortunate that you so frequently have to deal with heat-compromised wines!

Hubacker Riesling 2014

Always a terrific expression of Riesling. Youthful, deep and with layered complexity and nervy energy. Stone fruits, orange zest, wet stones and hints of grapefruit. It has superb tension and an ample mid-palate with a long, focused and elegant finish. Love Keller Riesling. — 13 days ago

Selection A Spätburgunder 2003

I was wondering whether my 2003 bottles made it through the years. They did!
Mature, very 'round', full bodied, a bit on the sweet side just as i think is typical for a German 'Spätburgunder' (aka. pinot noir).
I love it!

Hohen-Sülzener Kirchenstück Riesling Grosses Gewächs 2019

Lyle Fass
9.6

Huge mirabelle plum, tangerine, citrus, huge spices and fruit skin. Confectionary, airy and heavenly. Complex and expansive. This has the roundness of Keller. Savory in the nose. Rainer and white cherries on the palate but with superb minerality. Vibrating. Amazingly refined. So pure. So elegant. I mean this is crazy elegant than snaps with the sap on the finish. This is refined like Keller. Super pure. Super ripe and yet so mineral. Chewy, so pure. Finish just dissipates. So so mineral. This wine used to be a wild child but now it is a mature person. Gorgeous. So juicy. A drink me now wine. Wow. — a month ago
