Trarbacher Hühnerberg Riesling Auslese Trocken * 2014

Ok. This is whack. First off the color is orange. Only 2014 but tastes like a 15 year old wine. Permissive cork ?

Nose has aged Riesling and it smells like a very good sweet auslese. Dried peaches ?

Palate has age. Massive density. Massive. Concentrated orange peel. Rich. Some spice. Piquant.

I’ve never had a dry Riesling like this. It tastes like a sweet auslese without sugar

Day 2 this has a pleasant mushroom notes on the nose. Psychotic.

Kröver Kirchlay Spätlese Trocken Riesling ** 2016

Whoa. This is a surprise.

Nose is mineral made from petrified flowers. As it opens sweet state.

Palate has a blast of pebbly minerality. Almost like drinking flowers. Hint if white peach. Indescribably delicious. As it opens almost a sweet juiciness. Minerality is perfectly interlaced with the fruit.

Expansive internal aromatics. Some green apple.

der hirt trocken Riesling 2017

Very juicy. Full bodied. Ripe ripe orange and lime citrus flavors. Some green mango and jackfruit spice with warmth. Some lingering acid and minerals. Some of that buttercream and sugar on the nose. The better of the cuvees I’ve had from Lardot. Be back w more. — 13 days ago

Zeltinger Schlossberg Spätlese Riesling 2008

Nose has ripe peach, green apple peel, hazelnuts, dried orange rind, lanolin and fresh apricot.

Palate has dried apricot, green apple flesh, grapefruit pith, dried lemon peel, over-ripe apricot with a faint green herbal note.

What a fantastic bottle, years to go, and this is still fresh under Stelvin closure. We have lots of Riesling, yet we drink it sparingly, bottles like this make my night, any night! 👍

Terrific nose. Spice, green apple, floral, slate and very fine aromas. Juicy and lean. Love 2014. Pure fruit. Pithy and just ripe. Love the tension. Terrific energy and freshness. Lovely acidity. Long finish with pithy fruit. Very elegant and complex. Terrific wine. — 3 days ago

Hofberg Kabinett Riesling 2015

Been holding onto this for a bit but in the spirit of drinking good wine in challenging times: what a vintage. The balance is just so impeccable. Rs and acid, salt water taffy & some Meyer lemon - but overall an integrated, no hard edges elegant creature — 6 days ago
