Riesling 2017

The 2017 Figgins Family Wines Riesling is a fantastic bottling from winemaker Chris Figgins. and is truly one of the best of its kind in the state. Showing off a golden hue, this begins with lovely petrol aromatics along with white flowers, honeydew melon and candied pineapple coming through in the glass. On the palate this delivers vibrant minerality backed by flavors of white peach, lemongrass, roasted pineapple and hints of smoky undertones which complete this complex and delicious Riesling.

@David Shaw I think it’s 6 G/L but it comes off very slightly sweet

Isolation Ridge Vineyard Dry Riesling 2017

/ The wine forces you to take note immediately; aromatic and so pure with orange blossom, ripe citrus as well as a beautiful slaty, stoniness. On the palate the wine is much like the nose with just a touch of tangerine and fresh white nectarine in the mix also. The wine is so pure & focussed with a great acid line, that is lip-smacking and a touch salty. Would pair a dream sitting seaside with some grilled shellfish in a ginger and lemongrass marinade 🍤 — 11 days ago

Revival Mosel Trocken Riesling 2016

Decanted ~1hr.
Nose has green apple peel, white peach, under-ripe tangerine juice and wet, decaying granite.
Palate is quite citrus-y, peach notes coming in strong mid-finish, light lingering sweetness and wet mineral dust on the tail end.

Decent wine, not the typical Müllen style, more like a Riesling trying to be a Burgundy, and doing a fairly positive effort in getting there. Future bottles 2022+ minimum.

Continuing to evolve with extended air, getting quite nice!

Niersteiner Hipping Riesling Kabinett 2017

Impossibly distilled from red slate, then infused with herbs and flowers. To complete, squeeze in the juice of one nectarine and add a dash of salt. The resulting elixer contains enough energy to power a household for a year. — 10 days ago

Barrel X Saar Feinherb Riesling 2016

My favorite Saar multi-vineyard Riesling blend. Picking up more tart green apple that prior bottles, also wet slate and light petrol notes are becoming apparent with more bottle age.

Great wine to sneak into a film festival in my water bottle tonight, yum!

Kröver Paradies Trocken Riesling Spätlese* 2010

Fantastic wine. And not even his top bottling. Mosel slate and acid blasts the palate. Some green apple and a hint of lemon pith. Crazy vibrancy. Lovely slate on the nose. Bought from fass selections. — 5 days ago

Mölsheim Riesling 2017

Our first non-US Riesling for the 2017 vintage, looking quite positive! Decanted ~45m.

Nose has ripe peach, orange zest, fresh cut red apple and honey.
Palate is all about the citrus, a lemon juiced over top of a tangerine, then a bite of lime sprinkled with mineral dust. Crazy, but balanced acidity, just wow, what a lengthy finish!

Riesling Brut

First time trying a Sekt and I’m a big fan. Really crisp with balanced acidity and mineral-driven fruity overtones. White peach, lemon verbena, lemon meringue, and stone fruit. Paired perfectly with Thai for dinner. Served chilled in Riedel Performance flutes. — 3 days ago

Cuvée Sputnik Riesling 2016

Delicious and complex Niagara Riesling, light gold colour with a nose that hints at tropical flower and fresh lime. Very zingy acidity with a semi-dry palate resembling cider with a long saline finish. Paired with a spicy coconut shrimp curry. — 5 days ago
