Niedermenninger Herrenberg Kabinett Trocken Riesling 2018

Why did I not buy more? Very light, lightning acidity, green apples, a little floral and a hint of rubber duck. Lovely chalky minerality. — 6 days ago

Krettnacher Euchariusberg Auslese Riesling 2016

I get it, I get it, I understand the hype now. This was the last bottle of the day, the crowd thinned down to 3 from 7 and 15 bottles had already been consumed. The color of the wine was the first hint that let me know this was going to be different. In the glass this looks like water. However once your nose gets into the glass you know this cannot be water. Notes of lime, oranges , herbs and stone fruit blast their way into your nasal passage. You almost feel there’s no need to drink it, just snort it. Everything that your nose was treated to is amplified on the palate. Pure fruit and electrifying acid. I now know what Uma Thurman’s character in Pulp Fiction experienced when John Travolta stabbed her in the heart with a shot of adrenaline. — 4 months ago

We loved this natural Italian Pinot. Went weirdly well with spicy black bean turkey chili — 3 months ago

Niedermenniger Sonnenberg Spätlese Feinherb Riesling 2018

This is AP 3. Beautiful balance, minty tones along with clean orchard. Unabashedly off-dry but with tons of verve. A winner with burrata at our dinner. — 10 months ago

AP 8 Alte Reben Krettnacher Euchariusberg Kabinett Riesling 2016

A bit more shy on open, but then blossoming into the classic Falkenstein dance of herb and stone, crackling with zesty acidity that floats into a neverending finish that leaves you salivating (literally) for more. So good! — 16 days ago

Niedermenninger Sonnenberg Spätlese Trocken Riesling 2018

This Riesling from the Mosel valley was sweet but had a sharp acidity that left a nice impression of the sides of my tongue. There were hints of lemon, honeysuckle, and vanilla. I drank this fast, wishing there was more. — 2 months ago
