Rheingau Riesling

Georg Breuer

Rauenthal Estate Riesling 2016

There is nothing like German Riesling! Georg Breuer is one of my favorite producers from the Rheingau region. Wonderful flavors of lemon zest, star fruit, tart pineapple. Crisp and dry Riesling. #summerofriesling #rheingau #deutscherwein #germanwine #germanwinesociety — 4 days ago

Gelblack Qualitätswein Riesling 2017

What an awesome Riesling. A bit sweeter then what I normally like but it is a tangy sweetness, sooo vibrant, so refreshing and a very soothing, pure, clean finish that lingers for more than a minute. What an awesome Riesling! — 6 days ago

Yesterday’s Wednesday Wine Committee, hosted by @Jeff Meyer , was so educational with fantastic German & Austrian wines. 1 sparkler, 5 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert wine. All served blind as usual.

Aromatics jumped out of the glass here. Not full on sweet, but definitely more so than white number 2. More sweet stone fruits, citrus, candied kiwi and possibly some RS in the finish. I called this kabinett styled German Riesling.

Dry Rheingau Riesling 2015

8.9

Wednesday Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. Blind as usual.

Quite mineral/wet rock driven on the palate, but the nose had the smallest touch of sweetness (like faint lychee), alongside nice acidity. Some of the sweetness reappeared on the finish. Definitely dry in style. Zero petrol. I called this dry German Riesling.

This was SO good! Wow. Vintage sparkling Riesling! First note when sticking your nose in the glass was petrol. Very light and crisp, mainly showing chalk, limestone, white peach and a touch of sweetness. Dry. I called this sparkling Riesling. Very enjoyable.

Classic Rheingau Riesling 2018

Nothing special but it’s a solid riesling at a solid price, gotta love that incredible access to decent rieslings when visiting Frankfurt 😭 (this is a late post-vacation upload, given by and enjoyed at a family friend’s) — 17 days ago

Weinhaus Ress

Trocken Riesling 2016

trying to be better at tasting notes and was thinking "peachy" but another review that mentioned apricot felt like a better descriptor. hint of sweet but noticeably not /sweet/ (it is dry after all) and a nice mouth-watering acidity with hints of......cherry? perhaps? (Astor, I think)
ok ok I am not a huge fan of this one. I think it might be that it's.....not super fruity? more savory I guess, mineraly, still a little fruit but definitely not fruit heavy.

Prinz

Jungfer Erste Lage Großes Gewächs Riesling 2017

Another pleasant surprise! I did not place this in Rheingau as it wasn't the warmest of the lot. That said the group did identify this correctly, but in my defense, Prinz isn't really traditional Rheingau according to them. Another producer to look out for.

Peach, kiwi, white flowers, minerals, and lees on the nose. Quite fruity on the palate, even a touch sugary, but balanced by herbaceous and fantastic minerality. There's a real balance and finesse that blew me away, especially when the region was revealed. I've had Prinz before, but the producer never really stood - I guess they really nailed 2017!
