What a wine. What a nose. Peaches. Apricots. Slate, kumquat. Herbs, canned peach juice, so complex such an array of aromas. The palate is an exercise in glorious balance and jaw dropping purity. Fleshy yet has energy and tension from acid. Almost tannic on the finish. Exceptional depth. So complex and lovely citrus. Amazing what a kiss of sugar does to Riesling. It has all the energy of a Trocken but it’s like the Trocken smoked a joint and is in chill mode. The herb is so fine. — 4 days ago

What a nose. It pops. Big peach and apricot and that purest citrusy syrup dash of honey thing. Really singing. Slate in the background but beautiful and clean fruit. Floral and almost a nougat element as well. Stunning. Palate is at once opulent and also bone dry with razor sharp 2008 acidity and cleansing minerality and citrus on the finish which really is long and delineated. This is outrageous now. — 10 days ago

Killer nose. Lime, grasses, herbs, minerals, so pretty. Palate is unreal with 🔥🔥 acids. Wow. This will wake you up. Even me. Acid man. Acid, man. Wow, acid. But sweet fruit balances it out and the energy is incomparable. Love this. So long. Very impressive. — 19 days ago

There’s so much acid in this wine but it’s super balanced. I think the 16s had even more acid!!

Tasted blind. Dark gold, heavy in the glass. Crazy nose with notes of ripe apricot, petrol, burnt orange and slate. Less impactful in the mouth. Very light acidity and a thin finish. This was all about the nose. Good start to the night. — 17 days ago

Great nose. Huge slate and so mineral. Also a richness, lanolin as well. Lime zest. Love it. So complex. So fine and elegant on the palate with dazzling purity and freshness. Seems a bit closed but that doesn’t stop you from seeing how great this wine is. Long clean and intensely mineral finish. — 20 days ago

This is the Krover Kirchlay Spatlese ** - (it’s sweet and not Trocken)

Gorgeous aromas. Honeysuckle, ripe pear, slate and so so mineral. Smells like fresh rain in the glass. Peaches and apricots as well. Palate is rich, ripe and sweet with terrific acidity and a lovely compact feel and fleshy peachy pithy fruit on the finish. Lovely purity and freshness. So so complex. Terrific energy laps up some of the sweetness but this is a pretty sweet Spatlese despite its neck breaking freshness and minerality. Lovely wine. Long.

Laurentiuslay Spätlese Riesling 2016

Riesling can have complexity and character at every price point. The same can’t be said about Chardonnay or Pinot or really most any other grape. This wine I could drink every day. From old vines, it has aromas of honeyed lemon and flint. Terry Theise says it best. “ If you were offered a wine from a great vineyard from ungrafted 113-year old vines, and that wine came from France, Italy, or Spain, you would pay a fuckload more money for it.”

(I paid about $15)
