Navarro Vineyards

Cluster Select Late Harvest Sweet Anderson Valley Riesling 2016

Is this California’s greatest dessert wine? Every time I enjoy a glass I’m convinced it just might be (and if not, Navarro’s Cluster Select Gewürztraminer or Muscat making a compelling case as well). With laser sharp acidity and a surgical precision, the wine accomplishes a captivating balance between cool, wet stone flavors coupled with a more luscious cornucopia of fruit - ripe green apple, pear, and guava. Slightly viscous and entrancingly long - if the Mosel were found on California’s North Coast... — 12 hours ago

@Bryce Wiatrak seek out their late harvest Gewürztraminer, also very good.

Karthäuserhof

Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhofberg 'S' Auslese Trocken Riesling 2007

Wow. Mesmerizing nose. Aged Riesling. Maybe a touch of honey. Lemon oil and lemon windex on the palate. Dense. Crackling minerality. Almost no fruit. Amazing internal aromatics. Almost savory. Long. Very few wines like this. — 5 days ago

Rein Schiefer Riesling 2016

Mineral, under-ripe nectarine, lime pith, tropical fruit, wet minerals like granite chips in your mouth, crazy concentration, intense and extensive finish, and then the green apple notes arrive. Insane... — 5 days ago

Grosset

Polish Hill Clare Valley Riesling 2013

Arguably Australia’s best Riesling many would say. Beautiful aromatic nose of a high quality Riesling showing notes of Bath Talc and Lime Juice. Light to medium weight palate with lots of lime juice - still a baby at 5 years with a lot of development still to happen- up to another 15 years. Dry finish and 12.7% Alcohol. — 4 days ago

Another great 2014 if a bit closed and needs 2 hours of air. Intensely mineral perfume. Citrus skin and oil. Peach, tangerine skin. Palate is elegant and a bit closed but with explosive citrus and a big serious mineral core. Very pure. Powerful and very concentrated. Deep. — 4 days ago

Apricot, wet slate, tight finish. Great tension. So good now, but will age gracefully. Amazing with Alder wood smoke roasted King Salmon, basted with garlic/shallot/lemon thyme butter. — 2 days ago

Day 2 notes as on day 1 I wasn’t paying that much attention. Very mineral and green herbal. Nice rocks as well. Good detail and depth. Nice lime and lemon. Very precise aromas. Palate has all types of gorgeous bitter citrus fruits with some hints of apricot. Nice mouthfeel and richness while while also being mineral and finesse driven. Terrific. — 6 days ago

Undhof Kögl Riesling Reserve 2009

Mid Lemon in colour. Peachey flavours with a bitter finish. Full and luscious but finishes dry with 13.5% Alcohol. Nice to drink after the Grosset to compare. The following day honeyed notes. Delicious and uniquely European. — 3 days ago

Always been a fan of ‘10 and its steely frame is softened by a concentrated and pure mid palate. Racy acidity on the finish. There’s another 30 years of ageing potential for the youngsters out there. — 3 days ago

Peach and citrus fruits, and a boatload of minerals, this grand wine talks to your senses. Hinting at high end Burgundy yet remains all Mosel. Very HL. From magnum. — 3 days ago
