Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhofberg GG Trocken Riesling 2015

From Mag. Part of C&A's spectacular wedding lineup, and perfectly paired with suckling pig. The laser acidity and extreme salinity really cut through all that richness, but also interestingly completed the hot mustard sauce. The nose on this wine was beautiful - berries, white florals, sea salt, sage. Palate was just pure saltiness. The body, which seemed weightier than previous encounters, exceeded expectations - could have been the vintage or food. All in all, a great way to start a legendary feast! — 8 days ago

Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese Nr14 2002

Wonderful peachy lemon fruit. Soft and open and rounded- alongside the 2911 you can really see where this goes. Beautiful balance with acidity and sweetness in perfect harmony and a complex, long finish. Thrilling stuff. A real showstopper. — a day ago

Marienburg Falkenlay Riesling

Hmmm. This has been open 45 minutes and it’s a bit bashful. Love the slate and lemon pith. Some lemon soda. Pretty finish. Mineral and lemony. But it’s not wowing me. Nice. Nice. Not wonderful but nice. Could be semi closed at this stage. ... ok after 3 hours this came out of its shell. The density is apparent. Stone fruits. Rich. A wow wine. Yet terrific purity. — 14 days ago

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese Nr16 2011

This is out of a 375 - apricot marmalade some minerality and surprisingly a little free SO2 (after 8 years) still wish they could dial it back (SO2)a bit . In the mouth great acidity -really balanced sugar/ acid ratio , little bit of bottle bouquet ( mushroom) concentrated peach/apricot medium plus body overall a really nice wine — 2 days ago

Kröver Paradies Trocken Riesling Spätlese* 2010

Insane in the membrane. Huge nose of citrus, lime blossom, pink grapefruit, petrol, slate and herbs. Insane perfume. What an elegant and complex palate that floats yet is so so intense and juicy. Wow what a finish and that insane 2010 acidity. Amazing purity and so so delicate. This is genius. So good now but will last and last and last. — 6 days ago

1896 Riesling Erste Lage 2017

Lovely hint of richness. A bit soft for my taste in open. Almost like sweet lemon. Mineral kick on the finish. 45 minutes later still soft. Not a wine to age. Great marketing but not what it should be given the price. ... peaking in an oddly elegant kind of way at 90 minutes. — 7 days ago

Graacher Domprobst Halbtrocken Spätlese Saar Riesling 2005

Light honey in color with a golden tint.

A very aromatic and sweet nose of yellow apples, lemons, apricots, melons, honey suckle, tropical fruits and spices.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Semi sweet on the palate with lemons, citrus, red apples, tropical fruits, Mediterranean spices, honey, butterscotch and bitter herbs.

Short finish with limes.

This is a great 14 year old Riesling from Mosel, Germany. Showing great complexity and mouthfeel. I wish it had a longer finish, though.

Surprisingly, I did not get any diesel notes.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Very enjoyable by itself as a dessert.

Robert Parker 92 points.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years. Just Delicious.

13% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg Spätlese Riesling 1986

The condition of the bottle was remarkable - the wine was fresh and crisp, like the day it was bottled. Bright with a tinge of green, no signs of TDN at all. Only the mellowed acidity gave any indication of age. Insane!

Despite all that, the wine itself was rather disappointing. Not really complex or deep, and finish was quite short. I guess it did come from a tough vintage. However, it had the classic Grunhaus lightness - drinking more like a kabi than spat. In conclusion, an easy fun drink that fell below expectations.

@Delectable Wine this is the “3te Terrase” cuvee of the Trarbacher Hühnerberg Spatlese Trocken*

Huge nose of spice, floral, insane purity. Luscious and deep. So refined, juicy. Elegant and seamless. So mineral. Amazing.

Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spätlese Riesling 2016

This is the white capsule (dry). On the nose there is a tropical sweetness, with the aroma of lychees. On the palate this wine is bone dry, with minerals and tart acid on the palate. Somewhat voluptuous mouthfeel. — 8 hours ago
