Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Spätlese "Jupp" Riesling 2018

One of the best bottlings from this hallowed ground. Stunning nose. Layered and complex. Slate, apricot, peach, lime blossom, lemon, but sweet lemons. Huge herbal streak as well. Wow oh wow oh wow. Just a stinking insane nose. Palate is decadent and ripe but has insane freshness and the acidity is intense on the finish and mid but never intrusive. Sweet peaches and and candied lemons abound. So decadent but so balanced and ripe. Amazing stuff. Concentrated and super explosive. Amazing wine. A baby now but accessible. Stunningly long finish. So so elegant. This is a brilliant Spatlese. Holy smokes. — 2 days ago

Zeltinger Himmelreich Spätlese Riesling 1997

This looks incredibly youthful. The nose is quite pungent with lemon pith and gasoline and a note that reminds me of being a kid and rummaging through my grandmother’s attic. The palate is better than the nose, with slate-tinged lemon oil fruit. Seems surprisingly dry for a Spat. Great acids on the lemon drop finish. A treat! — 13 days ago

1,000L Riesling

Eyes:
Gold; pale; bright, almost shining; slight froth (?); cleat edge; a tad green

Nose:
Green apple; savory mineral notes; citrus; something very intoxicatingly savory that I can’t quite pin; crisp; honey; frozen fruit

Mouth:
Sizzling sweetness almost like pop rocks; crisp; honey; lime; lemon; fairly sweet, not too dry

On the whole: excellent and complex. Light, crisp, acidic, and aromatic, just how I like white wine. Would absolutely adore it if it were a bit drier.

Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Grande Reserve Riesling 2016

This is a KabiNett by the back label. Interesting they call it a Grand Reserve. Highest category I’ve seen at Spater Veit. Insane nose. Spices and perfumed. Peach skin, apple skin, so complex. The Piesport spice bazaar in full effect. Gorgeous hit of honey and tangelo. Palate is a dream. Juicy and complex but light and lithe with such amazing vivid and pure citrus fruits on the mid and finish. Stunning complexity and depth yet so light and nimble. — 8 days ago

Mineral bomb here. Slate, minerals, some peach skin, almost no fruit. Very expressive. Palate is juicy with lovely energy and purity. Rich and textured with great opulence but also energy to burn. Lovely stuff. — 8 days ago

Infanticide. Some stone fruits on the nose and for the time being that is the only time that you think about fruit while drinking this.
In the mouth your palate receives the electric chair. A long and a lingering minerally finsih
