We did a little “tour” of three rieslings and this was my second favorite of the three. Bright and just a tiny bit sweet. — 4 days ago
A wonderful Reisling from the Alsace region of France.
Pale golden straw in color. Tastes of light citrus/lemon, tart white nectarine, and pear. High-medium acidity gives a warm crisp mouth feel with slight pucker at the finish. Great for a warm summer evening. — 16 days ago
Today was my annual hosting of the Wednesday Wine Committee. There was 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert, all provided by me. Tasted blind, as always.
White number one. In comparison to other Alsatian Rieslings I enjoy, this was certainly more on the mellow side. Even after time in the glass, very little notes of petrol or limestone. This showed more like a SB or better yet, an older Alsatian Pinot Gris. Had some oily characteristics with grilled Meyer lemon and honeyed chalk, but certainly more restrained in style. Obviously of nice quality, I think this is just the style to be more friendly with pairings as it paired well with crab cakes. — 8 days ago
SO GOOD. This sparkling white from Alsace doesn’t taste like a Riesling at first. It’s got a beautiful mouthfeel and slight tartness that make it irresistible. Smells almost like peanut butter! — 12 days ago

Single vineyard, with manual harvest, a bit of prolonged maceration and spontaneous fermentation. Then large, used wood.
Nice precision here with opulent, ripe stone fruit paired with juicy acidity and a herby-mineral edge in the finish.
Love the labels, too. Great discovery from Rheinhessen. — 11 days ago
Pale lemon green; clear, medium intensity developing aromas of wet stone, blossom, white peach, lime. Dry, with high acidity, medium alcohol, medium body. On the palate, medium intensity flavors of lime, nectarine, wet stone, a hint of smoke and a bit of mushroom. Long finish, to drink now but has potential for further aging. Very good quality. — 22 days ago
