Lots of flesh, evolution, complexity
From ripe apricot to ginger, cardamom, aniseed, tea leaves, lemongrass, cumin, various herbs and more
Very charming and reassuring sip
I love this old whites that are whispering not screaming at you
I'd say at peak though — 21 hours ago
Shy in the nose with some pears, green banana, rye bread + a nice whiff of white pepper. Full of character and intriguing mouthfeel with the Chardonnay creaminess pierced by the spice of PB and PG. Nicely balanced, with good concentration & purity of fruit and a savory finish. A great food wine. — 22 days ago
💯💯💯 slightly musky upfront, chased by subtle some fruit and a long salty finish. Best served with a diversion in the other direction for distracting my table mates every time I refilled my glass. — 2 days ago
Blue frank for life. Just a great drinkable wine. Tastes like a fresh loquat, blueberries, dried mango. Nice acidity. — 13 days ago
Found another ‘16, aged well. Pale lemon with aromas of white flesh, spice and herb notes. On the palate pear and melon flavors with herb spice notes and mild black pepper tones. Well balanced, medium finish, good acidity ending with lemon zest. Consistent quality. Very Nice. — 4 days ago
Green apple, lime pith, and crushed limestone. Racy underripe orchard fruit, suggesting green apple and pear. Has a certain mouthfeel that suggests moderate lees contact. Solid all around. — 5 days ago
2013 was a poor year. However this rocks! Very rich.
their Riesling vines are apparently the oldest in Austria - it’s an old monastery. Needs decanting. Don’t drink too cold! In good vintages the tropical aromatics will blow your socks off.
Very honeyed nose and powerful 💪 orange blossoms. In the glass over the top Jasmine Roses 🌹 hint of 🌿 basil at the back palate. This ain’t a Rheingau however for a dry Riesling rich in style it rarely gets better than this drink now. — 7 days ago
