Plummy with some spice. Maybe some faint blueberries. Very mouth coating. Deep with licorice on the finish. Not sure I would guess Syrah blind. More like a dark pinot. Not huge acid but sparkly on the palate.
That’s the great thing about Ziereisen. He makes some of his wines from foreign grapes and they taste great but unlike anything you’ve had.
I thought that this was corked but the aromatics are fine after 45 minutes. So if you smell some mist it’s not corked. Chill out and it will blow off. Nose has some lovely spice.
Bought from Fass selections.
.... ok as this opens more it’s getting whack. Internal aromatics are explosive. Deep dense plums. Intense spice that literally cluster bomb all over your palate. Wow. A German just outsyrahed 95% of the Rhône. I may just bail on life and live next to Hanspeter. All hail hanspeter. — 12 days ago
German Pinot Night - Huber has his own oak forest which he uses for his barrels - so he does not use American Oak as one of the reviews suggested. Much more fruit than E&M. A lot of folks loved this wine for me too much fruit but still an excellent wine. Orange zest - lime - plenty of tannins. This has 5-10 year left. Green tea - tart apples 🍏 and hint of cherry. Not imported to the US - suitcase Import. — 4 days ago
Our first non-US Riesling for the 2017 vintage, looking quite positive!
Nose has ripe peach, orange zest, fresh cut red apple and honey.
Palate is all about the citrus, a lemon juiced over top of a tangerine, then a bite of lime sprinkled with mineral dust. Crazy, but balanced acidity, just wow, what a lengthy finish! — 2 days ago
First time trying a Sekt and I’m a big fan. Really crisp with balanced acidity and mineral-driven fruity overtones. White peach, lemon verbena, lemon meringue, and stone fruit. Paired perfectly with Thai for dinner. Served chilled in Riedel Performance flutes. — a day ago
Not imported. Suitcase import. Indistinguishable from a Burgundy! Really dark cherry - pomegranate - earthy - orange zest. Grows on limestone. From Franken an off the beaten path region. A shame that this is not imported. Will go 10 more years. Screw-cap. Why buy Burgundy if you can have this at a fraction of the price! — 4 days ago
Their second vintage. Big and young. Needs 5 hours to open up. I would recommend to cellar this for at least 5 - 10 more years. Mandarin zest - cedar - quite spicy - unreal complexity - Tulsi. It has a real bite despite just 12.5%. Without doubt one of the top 5 Pinot’s made in Germany that year another one made by the same guys is the Muschelkalk. If you pop a bottle open in the morning drink pm. — 4 days ago
Classic e and M nose, spice, resin, pine, clove, early season cherry, sour cherry, complex, very high acid, huge acid, beautiful purity, good length. Crunchy and very mineral. Almost stoney with cherry interspersed. Right now showing intensely mineral, but also has the sappy red fruits this bottling is know for. Elegant tannin. Wonderful. — 4 days ago
