Hipping Riesling 2015

So breathtakingly aromatic and ripe tropical fruits on the nose. Impeccable texture. Might be a bit overwhelmed for some people but this is undoubtedly delicious wine! — 4 days ago

Awesome nose. So complex. Loads of limestone, lemon, lemon candy, minerals galore, palate is so so juicy and zesty with intense acids and lovely lemony citrus fruit. High acid and terrific length. Huge depth and concentration and sleek texture. Awesome richness yet so racy. Lemony citrusy fruit on the finish. Saline as fuck. Love this. — 19 days ago

Clean, clear and bright. Lemon zest, soft spices in the background, lovely acidic frame. Some piquancy in the finish.
Quite happy with this trouvaille.

Nose is sweet minerals.

Palate is rocky minerals. Fairly ripe almost tropical fruit. Grippy.

Always a winner.

Bought from fass selections.

This is more of a classic GG than Keller, prefer this when tasting blind. — 4 days ago

Qvinterra trocken Riesling 2018

Aromatic, mineral, spicy with ripe, honeyed apricots plus a fistful of dried, salty herbs. Precise & pure in the palate with brilliant, juicy acidity, just the right amount of fruit and beautiful minerality.
Brilliant stuff for 12€. Unbeatable price/quality ratio.

Kirchenstück Riesling 2017

When I am not home to choose which wines to open, the corks start flying. This btl shouldn't have been opened yet, since it just arrived earlier this week, but oh well. On the nose, lovely salinity, sour lychee, and peach. On the palate, fantastic acidity, excellent density, but somehow not harmonious...loads of wet stone minerality and nice salinity, but missing something. I'm going to give this the benefit of the doubt and call it bottle shock. — 17 days ago

Not shock. 17’s brutally closed. Don’t open any more.

@Lyle Fass maybe you can figure a system to help my wife and Father-in-Law to remember what to open when I'm not there. They just grab :)

Racy Spatlese 101. Wow. What a brilliant nose. Gorgeous minerals, pineapple cream, apricot, peach nectar, so so decadent but clean as a whistle and never too much. Palate is hauntingly elegant with terrific concentration and citric power. Incredible depth, but also light and persistent. Terrific wine. The elegance has shockingly vivid fruits put this over the top. — 20 days ago

Hölle Spätburgunder 2015

Red Riesling for sure, but weightier than I’ve had. Biggest (in your mind) raspberries immediately, you can smell every molecule of that. Violets and lavender. Cherries, cherry tomatoes and cherry flowers on the finish. Really great stoniness. So much energy and life. It’s electric. The tannins are grippy, really fine earl gray and cherry pit and just keep the finish long. — 3 days ago
