9.3

The nose reveals, lighter more subtle petrol characteristics, ripe golden apple, ripe fleshy pineapple , apricots, marmalade, lemon syrup, grapefruit with pith, honey, beeswax, a little lime candy, white spice, dry stones, yellow lilies and spring flowers.

The body is thick, rich, waxy and a touch syrupy. Dry, pineapple & apricots, golden apple, peach, lemon syrup, lime candy, some green apple, grapefruit with pith, marmalade, orange rind, fruit blossoms, honey, beeswax, soft delicate minerality, very light petrol notes, slate, white spice with yellow lilies and spring flowers. Acidity is round and magnificent. The 09 is in a good place with plenty of life ahead. The rich, lush, well balanced finish is persistent for minutes.

Excellent with spicy Asian food.

Another visit to the weekly Wednesday Wine Committee, and a wonderful hosting by Glenn. As always, all wines are tasted blind. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert.

Wow! What a pull from Glenn. My guess was BA (which ended up being correct) but many others were trying to call it TBA or Sauternes. This was sweet, but not liqueur enough for it to be TBA and not enough compact flavors and honeyed savory notes to be Sauternes. Honeyed underripe peach and guava, with a tart finish. I thought it was only 20yrs old!

With acid in these wines, they might out live most people given both are birthed in the same year!

Hello Shay, I know this is very late, but I am hosting a Vip event this afternoon at Total Wine Preston Village - Shirley Roy is coming out and a member from Barnett Estate to taste and talk about your wines. I thought I would extend you an invite. Shoot me an email if you get this early on! mtrader@totalwine.com

Wiltinger Kupp Kabinett Riesling 2016

An austere, nervy Kabinett with good depth and persistence. Light pale hay. Smokey white flowers, burnt rubber, and Asian pear. What I imagine is a good dose of residual sugar hides beneath a blanket of integrated acid and flavors of sour pineapple, mango, and naval orange. Voluptuous. — 9 days ago

Alte Reben Trocken Riesling 2016

All Mosel sunshine and happy on the nose...then you get power, nerve and heady dryness on the palate. I like trocken just as much as the Pradikat classics; just depends on the food being served. #mosel #riesling #trocken — 7 days ago

@Delectable Winninger hamm Nose is very mineral. Maybe some fleeting memory of green apple. Palate is green apple skins and intense minerals. Bought from Fass selections. — a day ago

Delicious stuff! Acid framed a lovely core of bright orchard and citrus notes. Seems to be at about peak. — 16 days ago
