Charta Riesling 2014

Not usually a Riesling drinker, but since it was on the dry side, we gave it a try. The nose was unlike anything I’ve ever smelled. Unripe papaya, lemon pith and citrus. Almond, honey and gravel. Crisp finish. Not as light as a sauv blanc and held it’s own with middle eastern food — 2 days ago

Rüdesheimer Berg Schlossberg Spätlese Riesling 2004

The nectar of the gods. Honeyed apricots and pineapple. Beautifully balanced, sweet, but just enough acidity to maintain freshness. — 19 days ago

Lorch Rheingau Trocken Riesling 2013

Great acidity with a touch of RS balancing everything nicely. Lemon-lime, that petrichor/crushed rocks minerality thing going on with some salinity, dried pineapple. The margarita effect is real and it is glorious. — 17 days ago

Great fruit on the nose with a solid backbone of acidity and minerality. Still drinks young and could use a bit more time for it to feel more integrated on the palate. — a day ago

Kiedricher Gräfenberg Erstes Gewächs Trocken Riesling 2011

Pale to mid Lemon in colour - some petillance on side of glass. Lovely white floral notes with a touch of jasmine. Palate is intense and quite expansive for a dry Riesling (13.5% ABV). I haven’t had many wines from Robert Weil but it has the quality you expect for the price. On the palate some stone fruit with plenty of mineral and a generosity of flavour. Much more fleshy and aromatic than you get with top quality Australian Rieslings. Possibly at its peak. — 16 days ago

@Bob McDonald But you'd surely love to buy the current vintage for the same price as the '11 on release. I've enjoyed a few Weil in my days, they are magical.

@Severn Goodwin Absolutely. Not sure exactly when I bought this but it cost $108 AUD. Not on release.

Not too bad, at the current conversion of USD to AUD, about $73 on my side of the Pond. I'd still pay that.

Auslese Riesling 2017

By the glass. Barb said aromas of Fairy Floss. (Aussies who have been to rural Agricultural Shows will be familiar with Fairy Floss - a sugary whipped confection). Also a note of Lemon and petrol, but oh so young - yet to display its potential. One of the least sweet Ausleses I have ever had. Great refreshment and lively acid. — 14 days ago

Snacka om vin! Torkad frukt och saffran. Inte speciellt sött för spätlese. Magnum. — an hour ago
