Rheingau Riesling

Franz Künstler

Hochheimer Kirchenstück Spätlese Riesling 1998

Served double-blind. The wine appears as a deep golden color. Medium+ viscosity. The nose is a fascinating combination of intense honey suckle, orange blossom, coriander, candied oranges, and candied nuts. The palate follows suit with more honey suckle, citrus blossom and a slight nutty characteristic. There is definitely some residual sugar here. There is really good acid keeping everything afloat. The finish is long and short of cloying. Really impressive texture. Based on the color and the somewhat oxidative notes, I figured this had at least 10-15 years of age on it. I vacillated between Sauternes and Riesling…ultimately calling Sauternes from Barsac (feeling as though this was more Semillon than Sauvignon Blanc). I chose, poorly. But the wine is good and it positively begs for spicy Asian food. — 2 days ago

Wisselbrunnen GG Riesling 2018

Not much to add to my last note. The "fruity pebble" note was gone, and replaced with a bit of petrol..much more serious showing but again a lovely btl. — a day ago

Lorcher trocken Riesling 2015

Big and bold wine. Holding back on the nose but packs a punch on the palate. Bitter fresh almonds, green apple and a little bit of caramel. — 18 days ago

Quarzit trocken Riesling 2017

German Riesling with a medium yellow hue. On the nose it is fresh with wet stone, a mineral scent, green apple and heavy citrus scents. The mouthfeel is abundant with deep citrus flavors of lemon, lime, tart pear, Granny Smith apple, and some tertiary white peach flavors as well. This wine has a medium plus body, high acidity, and it is bone dry. At four years old, the acidity’s liveliness is impressive, and on its own it may be a bit overwhelming. However, if paired with pork or other rich-in-fat foods this is will shine right through and steal the show. Be wise; I paired with Texas Style Brisket and pork baby back ribs, what can I say, a new classic for me. Cheers. — 20 days ago

Silberlack Großes Gewächs Trocken Riesling 2016

What you expect Rheingau Riesling. Vibrant, full of energy and upfront flavors. More reserved on the nose, with pear, some honey ans some onion (I know sounds crazy). On the palate gooseberries, green apple and wet rocks. — a month ago
