dry, mineral — 7 days ago
Oops, forgot I had this in April. Drank alongside a '14 Roulot Bourg Blanc, and paired with a pasta with morel and scallion (light) cream sauce, with some seared scallops on top. This was far and away the better pairing, but it was fun to contrast the two '14s. With the cream sauce, the perceived acidity was perfect for my palate, so an excellent showing, really showcasing the minerality and citrus. Yeah it's Tuesday, but many pandemic-related restrictions were eased today here in cali. What that actually means remains to be seen... — 2 months ago
Lightly greeny-yellow. Acidity fairly biting at this time, but mellowed over several days as the wine opened up in the fridge. Touch of grapefruit, some preserved lemon, needs time and likely to get better. — 9 months ago
Unscrew and pour. Such a satisfying drink: inexpensive and so refreshing on a hot day. On the nose: this shows denser than previous btls, with loads of limestone, ripe lemon, soft green herbs. On the palate: fantastic acidity, lemon, lime, crushed rock, excellent density and a lovely tangy lime finish. Glad I have plenty more as this is so satisfying. — a month ago
Sneak peaking on Wittmanns 2019 for the Morstein launching on thursday. There is no doubt that the German Rieslings remains one of the under priced gems of the wine world.
The Westhofener presents a pronounced intense nose, youthful but complex and nuanced aromas, well defined characters that is playing in several clusters. Lemon zest, white pears and plum juice followed by ginger and a prominent wet stone minerality over a savoury and salty canvas. A cut through acidity drives the palate through an intense fruit profile and a solid finish.
Paired with pan fried Salomon filet, creamed cabbage and a soy and brown butter vinaigrette with plenty of lemon juice. — 8 months ago
Mid bronze-gold. This really opened up to reveal a fantastically long palate of white fruit with a twist of spice. Really come together over the last year. — a month ago
Actually slightly disappointing for a (Roulot) '14. Drank alongside a '14 Wittmann Aulerde GG, and paired with a pasta with morel and green onion (light) cream sauce. Riper nose than I expected on a '14, with very, very soft noble reduction, but good minerality and lemon. In a very good place, but the Aulerde was the better pairing with the food by a longshot. Good density, but slightly thin on the finish. I think I preferred the '13 edition to this one... — 2 months ago
