Trarbacher Huhnerberg Spätlese Riesling 2015

This stuff is killer. Brown sugar and confectioners sugar, pears on the nose. Jackfruit, mango, whole lemons and spice on the palate. The spice blooms a bit - nutmeg and mace and even cayenne - on the finish, carried a long way. You could time it with a grandfather clock. I’ll be back soon with more. Minerals are good, modest in this wine but they’d probably be mind blowing in a less powerful riesling. Sweet/acid balance is perfect.

Day 2 is like I dumped day 1 in a fresh plastic decanter: swimming pool over all. I want a bottle of this to myself over the length of a party.

Hofberg Kabinett Riesling 2016

All the Riesling things. Slate, slight petrol, lemon, apple cider, apricot, very tingly. Delicious, definitely off dry in style, ripe and juicy but finely etched and delicate — a day ago

Réserve Sekt Riesling 2016

Love. Pears, white peaches and some florals, medium body, well-proportioned acid, rounded out with a hint of bitterness. A ghost perception of sweetness, not sure if from a small dosage or just the brilliance of riesling.

A wonderful new expression of the grape for me... will be seeking several bottles of this out for aging.

Nose is tight. Gorgeous detailed fennel. Petrol, earthy and mineral. Other herbs. Apricot. Slowly unfurling. What a palate. So elegant. Super confectionary. Wow. Like cotton candy but also petrol and mineral. Mind boggling complexity. So juicy and precise. What energy. Amazing mid palate. Stunner. — 8 days ago

Kanzemer Sonnenberg Auslese Riesling 2003

Holy hell, this is straight diesel with a good candied orange finish. Carbonization of citrus juice. Finish Like a perfect daiquiri at 7.5%. Philippe petit wine. Be back for more, but this is great juice. — 9 days ago

Enkircher Ellergrub Kabinett Riesling 2018

Blazing acid yet so so delicate. A progression of petrol, kiwi, melon and lime blossom scents unfold to citrus sorbet and gooseberry in the mouth, all on a razor’s edge of acidity. Very precise, beautiful kabinett. — 16 days ago

It’s easy going…Petrol on the nose, with a wisp of honey. Quite soft, yet crisp on the palate. David pointed out the sugar, and it’s evident. This would pair nicely with foie gras. Tasing white peach and lemons on the finish. Moderate acidity - drinking window is now. — 20 hours ago

Yes, @Laith A. This was making itself small in our cellar. We have a few bottles left. Great with food or on its own.

Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg Spätlese Riesling 2017

Notes of dried orange peel, apricot marmalade, mango sorbet, honeycomb, honeysuckle, cherry blossom, stargazer lily, and peonies; smooth, and rich mouthfeel with a long finish. Definitely on the sweeter side. But wonderfully paired with a spicy Thai coconut soup and I suspect a versatile option for a myriad of spice- or heat-oriented dishes. Also could pair well with a dessert such as meringue, fresh raspberries, and sorbet...Vintage 2017. ABV 7.5%.
