@Delectable Wine the wine is “Krover Letterlay Spatlese Trocken**” / thanks.

Wow. Martin’s 2015’s are a force of nature. Slamming nose and so pure. Crystalline. Citrus oil, cream, floral, some faint spices. Gorgeous and airy yet precise and detailed. Juicy and complex with serous mineral driven structure yet tangy sweetness from the perfectly ripe citrus fruits and a sneaky persistence. This is stuffed and barely revealing itself but what it reveals now is still stunningly beautiful. A great wine.

Saarburger Rausch Spätlese Riesling 2009

Still painfully young, but already very focussed and energetic.
Nose and palate are dominated by fresh fruit nuances like peach, pear, raspberry and lemon zest. Seems quite sweet, yet the sweetness is beautifully framed by high levels of soft fruit-like acidity.
Beautiful now, but I feel this will improve considerably in 3 years time, and will easily last to age 20.

Really enjoyed this! Right balance of sweet and acid. Good nose. Complex enough! Paired well with clams and angel hair pasta! — 4 days ago

Trarbacher Huhnerberg trocken Spätlese Riesling 2009

The nose on this wine is magnificent. Words cannot describe. Gorgeously filigreed. A hint of aged Riesling. Palate has crystalline purity. Mineral. Gorgeously citrus. One of the best Rieslings I’ve ever had. Not overwhelmingly concentrated. But so balanced it’s damned near a work of art. Bought from Fass Selections. — 2 days ago

So good. Confectionary nose. Citrus, spice, deep perfume, somewhat feral, funky, classically Hühnerberg. Powerful yet also saline and mineral a f. Juicy and clean but also holding back so much. Gorgeous bitter fruit and purity. Long but needs 3 hours at least to open and ideally 5 years in the cellar. Masterful Kab Trocken. — 8 days ago

Alte Reben Trocken Riesling

2016 vintage. Super limey and fresh. A little tropical with some passionfruit or guava, lime flesh and zest, jasmine, white tea, green apple, gooseberry. Lots of character, fruity, and super acidic. Floral and tropical notes make it seem like there's a small dash of Muskateller or Scheurebe in the blend. Quite refreshing and thirst-quenching. — 4 days ago

Outstanding value. Lovely nose of cranberry tang, citrus, cherries, a whisper of minerals. So beautiful. Even some nice spice. Palate is wonderfully balanced and tangy with lovely sweet fruit. Mild tannin and lovely purity. Such a value. Juicy and so lithe yet has good crunch. Terrific persistence. — a day ago

"Urglück" Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese Riesling 2016

8% ABV, 100% awesome. Post Xmas dinner wine that won over even (so-called) non-Riesling drinkers. On the lighter end of Spätlese RS. — 4 days ago

Nice spot, lots of acid, sugar and sulfur still, will probably drink well for many years to come. — 7 days ago
