Huge and expressive nose. So mineral. Some sponti, apricot, complex earthiness, so fine, so stanky, great. Palate is elegant and ripe with complex juiciness and good depth. Lemony fruit and real good length. Showing very well. Terrific wine. Really needed 4-5 years. — 5 days ago

Superb. Deeply fruity and open nose. Apricot and mineral. So so deep. Wonderful slate and also honey. Palate has tons of acid and minerality with lovely sweet fruit and amazing purity. Honeyed, ripe and rich with some nice opulence. Good acids on the finish. Very mineral finish. Lovely for this humidity and heat. — 2 days ago

Georg Breuer

Rauenthal Estate Riesling 2016

There is nothing like German Riesling! Georg Breuer is one of my favorite producers from the Rheingau region. Wonderful flavors of lemon zest, star fruit, tart pineapple. Crisp and dry Riesling. #summerofriesling #rheingau #deutscherwein #germanwine #germanwinesociety — 7 days ago

Wednesday Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. Blind as usual.

Quite mineral/wet rock driven on the palate, but the nose had the smallest touch of sweetness (like faint lychee), alongside nice acidity. Some of the sweetness reappeared on the finish. Definitely dry in style. Zero petrol. I called this dry German Riesling.

Weingut Keller

Abts E Westhofen Brunnenhäuschen Riesling 2014

Ah! The prima ballerina of Rheinhessen. The precise footwork, elegant gait, and undeniable presence. Usually, she takes centre stage, but tonight, the queen of Nierstein has decided to make a forceful announcement during her grand performance - "I will dance instead, and you will love it!" :)

We thought that drinking the 17' Hipping first was a good idea. In hindsight, I'm not even sure why, especially given how the Abtserde was totally eclipsed by it. Nevertheless, the 14' Abtserde was still a great expression of riesling

For me, Absterde is usually the most filigreed and electric of KP's vineyards, but this time, it was showing a more breadth than the typically weightier Hipping. Very powerful with exotic fruits dominating, set on a backdrop of herbs and spice. Concentrated, but in the same vein as the 17' Hipping - new KP in my eyes. I can see why some would prefer KP's older vintages compared to this, which are seemingly more extracted. There's a mineral drive and acidity which really dances on the palate. Admittedly, this finishes a touch hot but nothing to detract from the sheer energy of this wine. It needs time to bring it more balance and finesse I feel.

Karthäuserhof

Nr. 24 Auction Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhof Spätlese Riesling 2016

There's a beautiful lightness to the wines of the Ruwer Valley. When I say this, I guess I am mostly refering to the two legendary producers in the area - Grunhaus and Karthauserhof. Whether this has to do with terrior or winemaking decision, I don't know. Regardless, it is this trademark lightness that keeps me coming back and it's no different here.

The 2016 Karthäuserhof Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhof Riesling Spätlese Nr. 24 Auction is a very fine. From magnum. Light-footed and juicy, super aromatic, leads with ripe stone fruits and pears, complemented by spicy tones of anise and licorice. If I had to nit-pick, it would be that I expected the wine to be a little saltier. Still, it's delightfully complex and scarily drinkable.

Selbach

Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Riesling

2016. Selbach Riesling Incline Mosel. Great value for a lush but quite crisp Riesling. Fairly intense initial burst, nothing cloying but does end a bit harsh. Overall very enjoyable. — a day ago

Kröver Letterlay Auslese Riesling 2010

Nose is clean botrytus. Palate is confectioners sugar. Some perfect peach. Great acidity ( of course it’s mueller). Long finish. Lovely slightly syrupy texture. Wow. So so delicious. Still fresh as a daisy. Maybe a mere hint of age on the nose. Kill one now if you just want to enjoy life. Check in in 2024. Bought from fass selections. — 3 days ago

Oh man is this great. What a nose. Stunning. Honeyed, caramel, but so much mineral. Decadent. Lordy. Palate is like icing on a cake and sweet with insane acidity. So much acid. Wow. Awesome texture and balance. Grippy fruit and so compact and linear. Ridiculously energetic. — 5 days ago

Rheinschiefer Trocken Riesling 2018

Very young with plenty of acid. Biodynamic - florals with slatey overtones. Tingling with petillance on the palate. Overall too young but it does show its potential - fresh and lively. — 20 hours ago
