Hoheleite GG Riesling 2012

Chilled a little over cellar temperature, notes forthcoming...

Nose has insane qualities, not sure I've ever experienced a Riesling like this, beeswax, grapefruit pith, fresh cut white grapefruit, freshly cut spring hay and faint wet limestone.

Palate is restrained, yet screaming acidity, pulverized SweeTARTS, honey poured over citrus pith, limestone dust and faint white flowers.

Holy crap this is good!

Bocksbeutel with a glass stopper, unique closure for the classic Franconia bottle.

Visited the winery in 2018, so a little stock of future pleasure in the cellar... 😉

Venezia Giulia Franconia 2014

Ripe plums, blackberries and blueberries with savory brown spice, and black olive. Pretty violets in rich black soil. A combination of ripe and underripe blueberries and blackberries on the palate with a hint of silky tannin. Delicious and totally stunning for under $20. — 4 years ago

Reserve Franconia Lemberger 2012

Rich hearty bold flavor, with believe it or not a buttery flavor and smell. Perfect wine for a cold winter evening. Local to Michigan, I spoke with the wine maker himself. Local MI wines are under estimated! — 6 years ago
