von der Fels Rheinhessen Riesling 2015

Alder Yarrow

There are some times when the only thing that will suffice is one of the world’s greatest Rieslings. Klaus-Peter Keller @kellerdalsheim is, in my mind, the undisputed master of the Rheinhessen region of Germany. The Keller family has been making wine for 10 generations, and the oldest parcel of Riesling they have has been handed down within the family since 1789. Keller, who apprenticed in Burgundy before studying enology at Geisenheim told me that he looks for “playful elegance” in wine. He wants it to dance on the palate. And I’ve never had a bottle of his wine that hasn’t made ME want to dance. This one marries lemon pith and lemon oil with Asian pear and mandarine orange peel. But all of these flavors are perceived through a quartz-like minerality that evokes the feeling of licking an icicle or exploring a glacial cave. Stunning clarity and incredible acidity makes for a profound glass of mostly-dry Riesling. — 12 days ago

Limestone Rheinhessen Riesling 2015

I can’t add to the notes I made here 39 weeks ago and 66 weeks ago. Lime notes with white peach on the palate. The intensity and chalky minerality stand out. My last one of 3. — a month ago

Troken Rheinhessen Riesling 2019

Always buy a few bottles to have handy for when people come over and say, “I do not like Riesling”. Eventually followed up with , “Is it affordable and is it available?” A touch more flamboyant in this vintage. — 8 days ago

Morstein Riesling GG 2017

Casey Curbow

Intensely focused yet widely dimensioned apricot and exotic tropical fruits like lychee and mango. All of that orderly packed within a rich and deep mineral frame. Endless length and texture in a rarified class. This is already drinking well, even if primary. — 2 months ago

-RR- Rheinhessen Riesling 2020

Thought this would be too young and even after decanting this is nowhere near ready. The bare bones of a good wine are there with harmonious acidity and zingy lemon but this is completely missing the complexity that you associate with a Keller wine. Next bottle in 5 years minimum! — 10 days ago

Frauenberg Spätburgunder Großes Gewächs 2016

Nose : tomato powder some perfume. A hint of savory.

Palate is tomato. Rich. Like the best tomatoes ever.

A tad flawed. But delicious.
