Hofgut Falkenstein

Niedermenniger Herrenberg Spätlese feinherb A.P. #4 2019

Light golden color with a tinge of green. Beautifully perfumed with aromas of apricots and honey with a dash of pears. Chamomile and lilacs with green apples and slate. Riesling has never truly been my jam in my past but this is a really nice example of what the grape can be. Sharp acidity and nice purity of fruit.

Off dry with just the right amount of sweetness here, this has terrific balance throughout. Smooth and elegant, with a nice level of refinement. The palate features Meyer lemons, melons, and crisp citrus fruits. Slate, minerality, and a bit of spice. Light and decidedly fresh, these Hofgut Falkenstein wines are indeed the real deal.

Vom Roten Schiefer Riesling 2016

Grilled lemons, ginger, freshly cut green herbs, pinch of that peppery candyshop sponti-nase. Beautiful.
Powdery mouthfeel, quite concentrated.
Great to drink now.

Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Mosel Auslese** Riesling 2016

I could just sit and smell this: grapefruit, fennel, fennel pollen, soft yeast, herbs, cucumber, wet stone, loads of minerality....subtle and fantastically complex. On the palate: fantastic acidity, sweet grapefruit, lime, crushed flowers, roasted fennel, fantastic minerality and excellent density and a lovely finish. Stunning. — 7 days ago

Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese Riesling ** 2013

Pop and pour. Notes from 1 hr open. On the nose: peach, soft cotton candy, loads of wet stone and lime...still surprisingly primary. On the palate: good acidity, loads of wet stone, lime, soft honeyed notes, fantastic density. Not quite as vibrant as other Molitor wines I've had from this vineyard, but superb balance, and damn good. — 11 days ago

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Eiswein Kabinett Riesling 1978

Tasted blind. Dark gold. Sweet nose. Notes of apricot, wet stones, lemon zest, some orange and Grand Marnier and something like bay leaf. Very light acidity, somewhat flat. All this and the color tell me it’s old German so I guess 70s. — 4 days ago

Unterstenbersch Faß 12 Riesling 2013

Unctuous. Yes, 2017 here has some weight but fuck this is good despite the lack of minerals and acidity that the 2019ers have. It’s a different vintage but it’s really good. A beautiful wine — 3 days ago
