Alsace Riesling

Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Calcaire Alsace Riesling 2012

Full of limestone, crushed rocks and minerals. Lime, orange oil, ripe apple and pear, hint of pineapple and mango. Definitely some usage of oak, but neutral and pleasant. Trace of RS, but still considered as dry. Nice acidity and long finish. 13% abv — 2 days ago

Alsace Riesling 2015

Bright and ripe and friendly. Groundbreaking? Soulmoving? Nah but balanced and friendly and not bad with fries. The eye: medium golden yellow. The nose: ripe lemon, Meyer lemon, ripe golden apple, a hint of honey. Tongue: dry AF, so much acid alcohol my guess? Tastes like13%ab 12.5% whaaaaa okay. On the taste buds more of the nose: ripe and raw apple some white pear some citrus acid and earth. Look for the acid. Always the acid. — 18 days ago

@Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher @Sean Herriott i just tried them, pretty decent! I’ve decided I’m starting a WineFries Instagram reviewing fry and wine pairings. Coming soon. Partly as an excuse to consume more fries.

Domaine Ostertag

Clos Mathis Alsace AOC Riesling 2013

A dynamite Riesling of energy and persistence. In the typical, rambunctious Ostertag style that is so gratifying - ginger, pepper, lavender, and ripe peach. What a treat! — 12 days ago

Riesling Cuvée Henri 2007

This tastes like when you sprinkle lemon juice over sliced apples for preservation... plus ¿ginger? Not mad about it, just a little too borderline Moscow Mule. — 6 days ago

Cuvée Frédéric Emile Alsace Riesling 2009

Succulent and juicy, this 2009 Trimbach Alsace Riesling paired perfectly with spicy pad woon sen. Exhibiting notes of peaches, pineapple, honeysuckle, slate, and summer rains, this wine gave quite the performance. — 6 days ago

The 2018 Spring Confrerie dinner was a wonderful time with some great Alsatian wines (and non-Alsatian wines) and fantastic food!

This was already good at pop and pour, but you’re doing a disservice if you don’t let it sit in the glass a while. With some air, this wine jumps out of the glass with that classic petrol note. On the palate, very crisp acidity with lime, stone fruit and a mineral driven finish.
