Kallstadter Kabinett trocken Riesling 2014

Dig these Koehler-Ruprecht trocken prädikatswein bottlings; they smell like they’re going to be sweet but then surprise the palate with their relative dryness. This Kallstadter kabinett trocken pours a medium (-) intensity straw-gold hue. Moderate concentration of aromatics of underripe stone fruit, shiso, wet stone minerality, a bit of petrol-y TDN character, a leesy aged cheese rind character, and a very slight honeyed spice that might signal a very small percentage of botrytized grapes might have gone into this wine (but I’m not 100% sure it is botrytis; it’s very faint if it is). On the palate, the wine is simultaneously soft and focused, with more slightly underripe stone fruit, wet stone minerality, slightly underripe mango, a savory, aged cheese rind leesiness, and some very subtle floral tones. Medium (+)/high acid, oily, softly textured light/medium (-) body, medium in-balance alcohol, and it’s dry-ish? Wouldn’t quite say off dry but definitely has a slight bit of balancing RS. Overall, pretty good stuff; haven’t yet been disappointed by Koehler-Ruprecht. — 3 days ago

Lovely limey and bright nose. Zesty and lively. Good minerality with slatiness and pretty sweetness. Delicious and dazzling but with soft edges. Complete and exhilarating — a day ago

Never disappoints. After cutting down two trees and running a new natural gas line this baby was as refreshing as ever. 🍋 and ⚡️ I’ll take this anytime. — 2 days ago

Berg Roseneck Riesling 2012

Нефть, латекс, пыльца, полевые травы, лимон, сухой лайм, неспелые абрикосы, печёное яблоко, красная смородина, ананас, корица, мокрый известняк. Поющая цитрусовая кислотность освежает насыщенное, но элегантное тело, оставляет ощущение сухости. Ещё очень молодо, с хорошей структурой и ощутимым запасом. Минерально, чуть нервно в своей вертикальности, стройно и напряжённо, с точной прорисовкой деталей. При всей своей внутренней сладкой спелости, внешне строго и компактно, почти аскетично. Интересно попробовать в более зрелом возрасте. — 6 days ago

Jubilee Alsace Riesling 2008

From a restaurant list. Nice medium gold color. Heavy in the glass. Beautiful bouquet of apricot, lemon, flowers and stone. Reminds me instantly of Clos St Hune. With air the power built. Good finish. Was empty before it had all the air it needed. — 7 days ago

Ürziger Würzgarten Spatlese Riesling 2007

Wonderful lusty nose of honeyed, earthy apricot, petrol. So rich but balanced and light. Nice acidity balances the sweet, pure, complex flavors. Could sip this forever. — 3 days ago

Marienburg Falkenlay Riesling

Wow. This is luscious. Lovely aged Riesling on the Nose. Palate is aged honey. Just awesome. Long rich finish. A very rich wine for the mosel but not atypical for the winemaker. At fifty bucks an incredible value. — 8 days ago

Süssenberg Riesling 2013

The Fall Confrerie St Etienne dinner highlighting Alsatian whites alongside French and Napa reds. A delightful evening!

Here is your petrol! Could smell it a table away. The residual sugar in this had to be low. Very balanced. Compared to the gewurztraminer we had tonight, this wasn’t sweet in any way. Light and refreshing.

Enkircher Ellergrub Spätlese Riesling 2016

Seriously fantastic, initially it's like whaaaaa? Spatlese? Gorgeous floral and apple filled nose, comes off like a kabinett for a brief beautiful acidic second, then a wave of sweet flowers, stonefruit, capped by an amazing citrus and apple finish with tons of acid. The faintest hint of petrol to come. Fantabulous. — 5 days ago
