German Riesling

Juliane Eller

Juwel Frühmesse Riesling 2017

Wow. I love this winemaker. Keller taught her well.

Nose is petrified apricot minerality. Pulverized and aerated pebbles. Penetrating and clean. Really aerated minerals. A hint of gun smoke from god’s gun.

Palate is very dense. Apricot pits. Almost a peach spice if that makes sense. Like the hit you get from a slightly underripe peach... but it’s good if that makes sense. Elegant fine minerals. Lovely elegant but grippy texture. Balancing salinity. Palate coating long chain dried apricot acids.

Long elegant mineral finish. Wow.

It’s insane. She is so damn good. She needs more elite terroir!

Erdener Treppchen Spätlese Riesling 2007

Vintage 2007 | If a Merkelbach is 10+ years old, you cannot see the age in the colour... the smell gives a deep and enjoyable butter and butterscotch impression, pear, melon, minerals. A mouthfeel with a soft battle between sweet and acids while having a perfect balance. Incredible pleasing Riesling. — 3 days ago

Not too watery?

Alte Reben Kabinett Riesling 2012

Bought a handful of 2012s a while ago & love what age does to these- more rounded, deeper. The fruit still vital. Not sure why this producer seems low on the radar. About 20$ for such high quality and the pedigree of the site shows too. — a month ago

Gaispfad Mosel Riesling 2017

The 2017 Weiser-Künstler Gaispfad bursts from the glass with masses of smoky minerality, a mix of spicy florals and young tropical fruits.  It’s soft and inviting, yet stimulating as well as vibrant acids add tension, further accentuating it’s tart white orchard fruits, ending with a savory and salt character that’s keeping me on the edge of my seat. — 5 days ago

Thörnicher Ritsch Riesling Kabinett Feinherb 2015

Lyle Fass

Huge slate and hint of petrol on the nose. Some vulcanized rubber. Some savory and gamey elements as well. Apple spice. Gorgeous and deep. Palate is clean, with a hint of sugar for sweetness and more importantly texture. Really compelling texture and so pure. Good freshness and good acidity. Lime, lemon, hint of honeysuckle. Gorgeous minerality. Just terrific. Long juicy finish.

@Delectable Wine its Hermann Ludes producer. Thanks!

Großes Gewachs Trocken Riesling 2011

A dry riesling. Had very typical notes of petrol, beeswax and apples. Went nicely with food. This is likely to get better in time it had nice concentration of flavors and persistance — 4 days ago

J'adore ce producteur. En plus, je trouve que les bouteilles ont de la gueule avec l'étiquette sur le goulot. La cuvée GG est vraiment excellente.

AP #27 Thörnicher Ritsch Spätlese Riesling Alte Reben 2015

Lyle Fass

@Delectable Wine this is AP 27 and is Alte reben. Thanks.

What a nose. Gorgeous apple spices, complex apple skins, slate and petrol. Airiness. So clean. So mineral. So bright. So decadent on the palate. The old vines really add so much. Creamy and electric with gorgeous pear and apple fruit. Really fills the mouth. Confectionary fruit and so complex. Wow. Juicy and clean. Sappy and dense with elegance and just so much confectionary fruit and sugar that just makes this delightful. Truly impressive.

Van Volxem

Volz Riesling 2009

The perfect mix of lemon curd, young mango, sour apple,  hazelnut, and yellow florals greet the senses as the 2009 Van Volxem Volz Riesling unfolds in the glass.  It’s soft and pliant, yet also full of so much citrus and mineral driven tension, with a textural richness that excites the senses.  Sweet spices and inner florals slowly taper off through the long and dramatic finish. — 8 days ago

Weingut Christoph Licht

Licht-Stadtfelt Brauneberger Jaffer Spätlese Trocken Riesling 2014

This wine still tastes like an infant. Great nose has tons of bright crushed rock minerality, lots of green apple fruit, and a light floral/meadow thing. Zingy and electric in the mouth. Bone dry, with an initial whack of fruit that quickly turns all into stones as the finish evolves. Bright acids. Enjoy now or let it sit and evolve over the next several years. — 9 days ago
