What a wine. Best one get. Dynamite nose of mid to late season red and black cherries. Floral, cocoa dust. Huge stoney minerality. Palate is dazzlingly fresh and so so pure. Amazing texture and sweet fruit with super tiny berry intensity and awesome juiciness. Dazzling wine. So so fresh and flavorful with unreal depth. What a wine. Terrific inner mouth aromas. — 14 days ago

This is currently my favorite beer. I love a good IPA but sometimes you need to do your tastebuds a favor and give them something with a little refreshing sweetness. — 2 days ago

***XII Trauben Trocken Spätburgunder 2016

Vintage 2016 / great effort from the oldest cooperation in the world. Light colour, warm and frivolous smell, recognizable Pinot Noir/Spätburgunder, juicy taste, small bitterness, mocca, elegance. Also potential for further development. Blind tasted. Almost everyone placed this in France... — a month ago

Upupa Rot Rosslauf Red Blend 2016

A slightly more modern yet highly authentic interpretation of Vernatsch. Cool & fresh with ripe plums, with some plum jam, a bit of damp earth & undergrowth, some graphite.
Nicely drawn, this is featherlight yet focused & precise, with pure, juicy fruit, good acidity and present tannins - quite light yet with grip. The aging in (large wood) fills the mid palate nicely. This is why I love Vernatsch!
Old vines, 5% Pinot noir, organic.

Trarbacher Hühnerberg Riesling Auslese Trocken * 2014

Ok. This is whack. First off the color is orange. Only 2014 but tastes like a 15 year old wine. Permissive cork ?

Nose has aged Riesling and it smells like a very good sweet auslese. Dried peaches ?

Palate has age. Massive density. Massive. Concentrated orange peel. Rich. Some spice. Piquant.

I’ve never had a dry Riesling like this. It tastes like a sweet auslese without sugar

Day 2 this has a pleasant mushroom notes on the nose. Psychotic.

Bought from fass selections.

Spätburgunder 2015

From Lyle Fass Selections. Quite sweet Pinot Fruit Ready to drink. Initially not that interesting. After left to air for 24 hours. Ripe cherries 🍒 the wine has mellowed out. No oxidation. Reminds me of a great Oregon Pinot. Hint of Orange blossoms. Spicy. Plum. 2015 was a warm vintage. A world class Wine. — 2 days ago

Nice. Great stuff.

Selbach-Oster

Zeltinger Schlossberg Spätlese Riesling 2008

Nose has ripe peach, green apple peel, hazelnuts, dried orange rind, lanolin and fresh apricot.

Palate has dried apricot, green apple flesh, grapefruit pith, dried lemon peel, over-ripe apricot with a faint green herbal note.

What a fantastic bottle, years to go, and this is still fresh under Stelvin closure. We have lots of Riesling, yet we drink it sparingly, bottles like this make my night, any night! 👍

48 Hour Update: Here's the thing with quality Riesling, more air is never a bad thing. Today all the traits are amplified, and a very fun pineapple-like acid/sweet note on the palate, amazing! Prior score of 9.2, goes to 9.3 today!

Nice, we went heavy on buying '15 Riesling's, but this is one we didn't take on...

Centgrafenberg GG Riesling 2015

My last btl was good, but this was excellent. On the nose, dense gooseberry, lime, a touch of yeast, herbs. On the palate, lovely acidity, lime, lemon, floral notes, fantastic dry extract, dense on the palate, with lime and sweet orange on the finish. — 2 days ago
