On Latham trip for Marie. Afraid this bottle pulled from front basemen stash may be just at the brink of decline. Nice deep golden color and that beautiful Riesling from VL nose except just a tinge of oxidative notes. This bottle perhaps suffered a bit from subpar storage plus age. Better fine the remaining bottles to check out. — 10 days ago
Yellow cherry jam and grapefruit marmalade are mingled with honey, marzipan and caramel on the nose and the glycerol-rich, seductively creamy palate of this colorful bottling from fruit harvested well into TBA territory. It finishes with prominent but not excessive sweetness, a soothing sense of saturation, a mouthwatering lick of salt and prodigious sheer persistence. Very much a wine with a future!

I think it's apt for me to compare this to Daniel's 14' Wolfer Goldgrube Kabi I had a few days ago: It's lighter; ethereal. Less ripe; on the grapefruit spectrum. Doesn't really feature that power with restraint element I saw in Daniel's Kabi; perhaps a function of vintage. As racy and precise. Similarly mineral, although Julian's wine leans on the fruitier side; bottle age difference perhaps. Sulphur applied with more constraint in Julian's wine. Spicier; feature I notice in some of Julian's cuvees.
Overall, a stunning Kabi. Just the way I like it! Without a doubt, one that will improve with age. — 2 years ago

Buen Riesling del Mosela, de
un buen productor como es Daniel Vollenweider. Los “Wolfer”, representan lo que sería un vino “Village” de la zona/pueblo de Wolf en Mosela. Este 2011, catado en 2020; presenta color dorado pálido, aun con algún destello verdoso. Potente nariz al inicio de Hidrocarburos, que se va suavizando y da paso a flores blancas, nectarinas y frutas tropicales. Persisten las notas a Petróleo o Keroseno.
En boca es un vino vertical, seco, gran acidez pero equilibrada, mineralidad. Corto. — 3 months ago
