Wine 10/12 (Riesling)
Nose has tart green apple, Mandarin orange slice, orange zest, under-ripe peach, slate, wet sandstone and over-ripe pear.
Palate has sugared lemon slice, salted green apple, Clementine zest, Tangerine slice with mild acidity, wet slate and slightly dry, long finish. Always a solid wine pretty much each vintage, the benefit of a Saar multi-vineyard blend, balance by portion (blending) control.
Once again it is notable that I have made one full trip around the Sun earlier this week. We had our small, social bubble team to the house for celebrating my getting older and somewhat less flexible in advancing age...Whatever will be done when I creast 50? Well, at least it's several years until needing manage that concern.
We enjoyed well-salted Ribeyes (Kinderhook Farm - Valatie, NY, prepared 48h in advance), turning to a beautiful medium-rare after a mere 12m of grill time and smashed, small red potatoes with capers (yeah try it, don't judge me yet). None of the bottles were particularly planned as 'steak wines'; we didn't care as it really was a wine nerd-fest of grapes/regions, from Burgenland, Austria to Brittany, France. Wine and food were on individual plateaux today. This was the vom Boden Spring Experience case, expertly curated by Stephen Bitterolf, and well received by our tasting crew. — a month ago
