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.

Geheimrat J Rheingau Spätlese Trocken Riesling 2000

2009 Opulent fruit Asian pear, dried Pineapple, with layers of honeysuckle. Nice long finish. The wine continued to develop throughout our meal offering even more tropical fruit notes. — 16 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 — 6 days ago

Johannisberg Trocken Riesling

Loved it - EXACTLY what a good Riesling is supposed to be, even with some light floral notes. Reminds me of the Chateau de St. Michelle Riesling. — 15 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. — 3 days ago
