Wachau Riesling 2007

New to the style. Quite tart and acidic, smoky, and showing fresh saline. A delicate wine with a firm constitution. — a month ago

A complex wine that shows a pronounced note of petrol, minerals and a hint of spice. A bit muted at first but blossoms in the glass with a bit of air. Crisp aromatics and minerality to compliment the richness of the quiche. What a lovely treat @Jim Wagonfeld 🙏❤️

First serving at a master somm tasting…apparently a $100 btl but quite average to my taste, fairly dry, acidic as expected, good but not remarkable. Stick with the cheaper Austrians or Alsatians — 3 months ago

Vinothek Wachau Riesling 1997

Could be the best wine of the year for me. Magnum from a collector’s cellar in perfect shape, this was pure joy. Light and lean on the palate but powerful and long on the finish, as it warmed up, the aromas opened and the texture got even more seductive. What a stunner. Thanks PK for sharing. — a month ago

Dürnsteiner Kellerberg Smaragd Riesling 2010

Intense wine, full of acidity and bitterness of lime, grapefruit, orange zest, green pine-apple and peach kernel. Really dry, as well. Complex, both on the nose and the palate, salty, mineral, oriental spice and a lovely touch of eucalyptus.
Great with a chunk of Gorgonzola Dolce and crackers.

Wachstum Bodenstein Smaragd Riesling 2013

Note to self, drink more Austrian wine in 2023. A nose that kept luring me in with a hook made of citrus and honey, haunting. In the mouth, acid and minerals declared eminent domain until it released flavors of pears, salt, watermelon and orange.

Winton, I have no clue why Delectable is not allowing me to specifically send a comment to you.  I have no idea how that color came about.  Hopefully we could share a bottle this year.

Loibner Loibenberg Smaragd Riesling 2015

Holy Cow Batman! Found this on a dusty forlorn top shelf of my neighborhood wine shop that generally has a lackluster Riesling selection. Was the last bottle and I think … it had been sitting there since 2017. Unbelievably delicious, deep, rich, and silky. — 2 months ago
