Another visit to the weekly Wednesday Wine Committee, and a wonderful hosting by Glenn. As always, all wines are tasted blind. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert.

This is drinking fantastic. My guess was mid ‘90s German Riesling. Very rich petrol nose, followed by sweetened pear and honeysuckle. Great acid. Plenty of life ahead.

Rudesheimer Berg Kaisersteinfels Terrassen Riesling

I'm still missing that laser sharp acidity from previous years but the wine has matured nicely and is very aromatic. — 9 days ago

Schloss Schönborn

Berg Schlossberg Auslese Riesling 1993

Riesling that is well aged and properly stored is a special treat and worth seeking out. It was Auslese but with bottle age has been mostly absorbed back into the wine. Equal joy and sadness that this was my last bottle — 10 days ago

Martinsthaler Rödchen Spätlese Trocken Riesling 1990

Absolutely delicious. Needs time to blow off and mellow. Sharply acidic when first opened. But then mellow and gorgeous. — 7 days ago
