Vom Roten Schiefer Riesling 2016

Quite generous and intense, legally (but not totally) dry, lovely acids and bitters.
Grilled lemons, lemoncurd, creamy lemon cheesecake notes, funky stony slatey minerals. Very good.

FLN — Excellent Auslese, long finish, but very youthful and could use another 10+ years of cellaring. — 17 days ago

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese Riesling 2019

First bottle of my 2019 WSU Auslesen from Prüm, and only my second ever Auslese from the estate. I think I knew what to expect from this wine, and sure enough it’s really closed down at the moment, with some spellbinding characteristics that need time to knit together. There isn’t a great deal to the nose, but the palate is gorgeous, very tropical, sweet but featherlight, with some pleasing bitter orange flavour that appears after two hours of air. It seems quite low in acidity, a characteristic of the vintage, and slightly incomplete at present but a joy to drink and a great match for Thai curry.

Eleven more bottles in this case and I shan’t open the next for another five years at least!

Mölsheim Riesling 2018

Lyle Fass

A brilliant vintage for this. Honeyed apricots, limestone, baked apple, honeysuckle, so aromatic and ripe but also tense and mineral. Palate is ripe, rich and honeyed but has dazzling purity and freshness and a nougat character to the wine. Mouthwatering and perfectly balanced. Brilliant! As this airs it’s getting much more grip and structure. Really dense and mineral but also honeyed and opulent. Multifaceted. — 25 days ago

Baden Pinot Noir 2020

This one is quite a happy surprise! A bouquet of juicy dark fruits and plum and earthern notes lays the ground. The sense of fertile dark earth intensives in the palate. But the body is lighter than expected an balances on a Long, sharp, precise cherry acidity. — 20 days ago
