Zesty with minerals, apple nectar, gooseberry and cinnamon. Honey sweet, but mayched by good acidity. — a month ago
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.

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

There's a beautiful lightness to the wines of the Ruwer Valley. When I say this, I guess I am mostly refering to the two legendary producers in the area - Grunhaus and Karthauserhof. Whether this has to do with terrior or winemaking decision, I don't know. Regardless, it is this trademark lightness that keeps me coming back and it's no different here.
The 2016 Karthäuserhof Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhof Riesling Spätlese Nr. 24 Auction is a very fine. From magnum. Light-footed and juicy, super aromatic, leads with ripe stone fruits and pears, complemented by spicy tones of anise and licorice. If I had to nit-pick, it would be that I expected the wine to be a little saltier. Still, it's delightfully complex and scarily drinkable. — 2 months ago
My first birth year wine. This will be tough to beat. So much tropical fruit with pronounced acidity bringing up the rear. Excellent texture as well. — 13 days ago
Vintage 2006 / This wine is multi-layered. In the smell: butter, apricot, citrus and later also passionfruit. Flint for sure. Very precise and true to type Riesling. In taste citrus, appetizing as well as refreshing. With a beautiful attract and repel game between a sweet touch and acidity. Beautiful wine. — a month ago
