Mosel, Germany

Immich-Batterieberg

Ellergrub Riesling 2011

Slate in spades! Lots of smoke, flloral nuances, candied lemon, Reine Claude, apricot and bruised red apple. Very precise and well-defined in its aromatics.
What I think is remarkable of this wine is the way how airyness, elegance and detail are balanced with the impressive concentration of minerals and creamy fruit in the mid-palate. A modern-day Mosel Riesling, though made with lots of respect and attention for the Mosel traditions. What a gorgeous wine. Bravo.

The crisp, mouthwatering green apple/lemon-lime side of Riesling in spades. Needs several hours of air time to show itself. So crisp and pure. Underlined with clean slate. Very distinctive. Will live for years and years. — 2 days ago

What a wine. Best Pinot Noir in the Mosel? I think so. Gorgeous nose. Loads of fresh red cherries and spice. Some mesquite BBQ. Earthy, mineral, slatey, floral, violets, so fresh and pure. Sick aromas. Aged aromas. Palate is an exercise in restraint. It is masterful how elegant and nimble this is. Perfect balance and poise for days. Elegant tannin and sneaky mineral length. Beautiful fruit. This is as nimble as riesling. Love this style it German Pinot Noir. — a day ago

Could have a bit more acid, but that's the vintage. All the same this is still not overly sweet, and fairly youthful, despite the signs of seepage that caused me to open the bottle. Well kept bottles should evolve well for decades. — 9 days ago

Medium lemon color. Pretty closed nose. Nice and delicate wet stones, white flowers, tangerines, pineapples, light cream and honey. Tons of minerals and honey on the palate, nice structure with good acidity. Definition of elegance. Will benefit for aging. 10% alc. 2012 vintage — 11 days ago

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese Riesling 2010

From Half Bottle (375 ml). Grapefruit yet Lychee type flavours with light mineral and medium acidity. Only 8.5% Alc but such intensity, length of flavour with plenty of residual sweetness. To be honest I was expecting more complexity from such an accomplished producer. Has the structure to age for decades. Putting a food match of pork belly to the test, as suggested, and it worked. I would normally have a light red. — 3 days ago

Quietly beautiful. Digging that lemon blossom nose, stark minerality, fresh pineapple, and lemon peel on the finish. It lasts on the palate forever. Will want some for further aging, though great now. — 12 days ago
