Pfalz Riesling

Sekt Extra Brut Riesling

Big soapy bubbles, high acid, zero yeasty/bready notes. Tropical fruit and slate. Uncomplicated but easy to enjoy. Bottle was gone in a flash. Another value from Von Winning. — 11 days ago

Stærkt. Hold øje med de brødre. De er gode, og deres Wilder Satz (hvid field blend) og Wildrose er vanvittig value for money, hvis man kan lide det grumset og surt.

Trarbacher Hühnerberg Spätlese trocken Riesling * 2018

This is reminding me of another dimension of what dry Riesling can be. It’s a beast; wafting with complex apricot, pome and tropical sour fruit notes, clove, spice, smoke, and a mineral and floral suite. In the mouth it’s viscous, dry, with a ton of dry extract and powdered granite. Mouth tingling minerality and sour candy finish. Hefty. Wall of flavor and hardly needs to be chilled. Very impressive.

Has integrated beautifully overnight. Though I wouldn’t begrudge it a little more acid, the power now presents elegantly and the mineral spice has mellowed nicely. 9.5 now.

Deidesheimer Paradiesgarten Kabinett Riesling 2001

21 year old Kabinett. Some might say that this is past it’s peak, but I love Kabinetts with age on them. Beautiful amber color. Peach or apricot ok the nose. On the palate vibrant acidity. This doesn’t have a lot of life left but still so good right now. — 20 days ago

Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese Riesling 2007

Have not had in 5 years. Young as ever. Eternal. Smells like a 17 or 16. Super slate, Granny Smith apple flesh, woodlands, pine, apple skins, so lean and classic. The slate aromatic expression is wonderful. Awesome texture like icing on a cake and superb balance and freshness. What a finish. The unsung Prüm. Really compelling wine. Best showing ever. Such a huge core of fruit and mineral and the finish! This will last 25+ more year and this is my last bottle. What a great bottle. This is last of 4. I tasted this wine with Bert Selbach at the estate and was floored. Now the estate is sold and doesn’t exist anymore and Bert is retired. He was a great winemaker and if you ever find any of his stuff buy it. His Himmelreich and Domprobst stuff is top class and with age they transform . — 5 days ago

Cuvée Frédéric Emile 375eme Anniversaire Alsace Riesling 2001

always a great bottle, it’s nearly the equal of Clos Ste Hune in this vintage. Their 375th anniversary bottling, it’s spectacular. Nose is intense and layered apricot and citrus, echoing on the palate with classy fruit driven deeply into palate and memory by the well integrated acidity. The wine is thick yet lithe, finishes quite long and clean. Nowhere near a downhill ride, I think it will hold this peak for a very long time. — 8 days ago

Been a while delectable family. Flu then covid and only 3 wines in that period. Well I am back and smell and taste are as they were before all of this. Nose has peach skin, some ripe peach flesh but not too ripe, confectionary aromas. Loads of wet stones and pulverized shale. Super aromatic. Like a cross between Pfalz/Alsace. Palate is lean and precise. Really clean, balanced and so pure. Fiercely mineral. Lovely peach flesh, skin and sap on the very long finish. Really juicy and engaging. Delicious! — 17 days ago

Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg Spätlese Riesling 2019

AP5

DAY1
Served with the Vinloq system
👃Apples, apricots, peach, grapefruit and slate
👅Peach, apple, and florals. Juicy but creamy. Full midpalate so typical of 2019 German rieslings. The sweet end of spatlese. Delicious

Slow Decanted the remaining wine in my fridge

DAY14
👃Apple, pear, peach but now oyster shell and briny, smoky musk. Jasmine tea
👅Light sweet nectar on the tongue with floral tea. Good acidity. The finish is dry and persistent. Enough salt to keep me thirsty

Elegant and light-footed but never thin. Drinking great. This will age well as expected of wines made from this historic vineyard. (There have been grapes grown in the Abtsberg vineyard for over 1,000 years)
