Riesling Blend

Trarbacher Huhnerberg trocken Riesling Spätlese* 2007

Oh my God.

An oh my God on open.

Nose is beautiful. I’d buy it just for that. Intense but elegant guava flower, pineapple flower blend. A nasal orgasm.

Palate is confectionary sugar made from tropical fruit distillation. Gorgeous.

Bought from fass selections

Hengst Alsace Grand Cru Riesling 2014

Light to medium gold. Pineaple and ripe yellow fruit , light petroleum and varietal aromas as well on the nose that follow on the ripe and full palate, rich texture, wide yet with a soft backbone acidity, good length.

Couleur or assez prononcée, un nez de fruits jaunes murs, un peu d’ananas, touche pétrolée. La bouche sur le même registre, du fruit mur, plein, texture riche, acidité basse mais avec juste assez de maintien pour cette richesse, sucre résiduel pas trop perceptible, belle longueur. Très bien et un vin intellectuel un peu. 89-90

Oberhäuser Leistenberg Kabinett Riesling 2016

Nose has slate/petrol notes, lime zest, lime slice, broken flint, orange blossom and very under-ripe green apple slice.

Palate has generous ripe apricot, lime peel, lime slice, petrol/plastic notes, dehydrated orange with a lush, mouth coating finish, long and beautiful.

Decanted 6H, then double decanted and slow oxidation overnight, this bottle has been open 23H at the time of notes.

This bottle is really starting to come together, but should have a long life ahead. Next check-in suggested 2026-2030+.

@Joshua Fisher Me! I'm still a young-ish guy, I'd better have at least 30Y of wine enjoyment in front of me, or I better start unloading bottles now.

Thörnicher Ritsch Auslese Riesling

This is the blend of 2010-11 vintages if I understand correctly. Decanted in the morning for aperitif to take us through dinner. This is simply a fabulous wine. Lime, petrol, green apple, honeyed sweetness, medium acidity. Great freshness. @Lyle Fass this should really be sold in magnum. — 21 days ago

Sadly we can’t sell magnums, the prices to get the wines here and then ship them are too much. In year 1 we did mags and the clients were going to kill me is they ever found me after the shipping charges. I decided I enjoy life and discontinued magnums. Still the most angry clients have ever been at me. So now magnums are triggering to me.

Lake Effect Vineyard Dry Riesling 2016

Light lemon in color with a golden tint.

Fruity nose with limes, lemons, citrus, spices and minerals.

Medium plus in body with high acidity.

Dry to off dry on the palate with citrus, spices, honey, red apples, light diesel, minerals, white pepper, light tropical fruits and pineapples.

Long tangy finish with limes and honey.

This is a delicious Riesling from New York State. Good by itself as a sipping wine. Tasty and spicy. Interesting and engaging.

The bright acidity is nicely balanced with the excess sugar. I liked the palate better than the nose.

This 5 year old is drinking very nicely, now and will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.

A good food wine that will pair very nicely with spicy Thai food.

A small production of only 340 cases made. Less than 1% residual sugar.

11.9% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Bernkasteler Badstube Spätlese Riesling 2014

Nose has lime slice, dried apricots, yeasty dough, soap powder and dried white flowers.

Palate has honey drizzle over dried orange, salted lime wedge, ripe apricot, dehydrated apple slice, lime peel and mineral water with lively acidity. Great bottle.

Decanted 5H.

A young wine still, could expect this bottle to run out another 15+ years in proper storage.

24 Hour Update:
Nose transitioned to dried lime, but that soap powder piece is quite nice. Palate is still holding true.

Mölsheim Riesling 2013

Nose has ripe mango, over-ripe pineapple, crushed apricot, cold yellow melon, resinous oak and wet slate.

Palate has candied pineapple, dehydrated lemon, crushed limestone (salty/tart), lemon zest, apricot with incredibly balance to the acidity/mineral/fruit notes, long finish. Stunning bottle!

Decanted 6H, then double decanted and slow oxidation overnight, this bottle has been open 23H at the time of notes.

In the zone, but still quite youthful, next check-in suggested 2028+. This bottle will have an incredible life ahead, I can't wait to see how this is in another 10-15 years!

Kayoumi Vineyard Riesling 2017

This 4 year old Riesling from Israel is drinking very nicely now. Showing citrus, diesel, red apples, light vegetables, peaches, light tropical fruits, lemons, minerals and spices.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry to off-dry on the palate, and crisp when properly chilled.

Tangy finish with limes and almonds.

Showing nice complexity with a soft mouth feel. Good by itself or with food.

This Single Vineyard from the galilee will age nicely in the next 5 years.

Would pair nicely with spicy Asian food. I paired it with a baked feta cheese pasta with cherry tomatoes and basil. Deliciously prepared by my daughter.

Grapes are grown at 2,500 feet of elevation. Aged in stainless steel vats. Kosher.

12% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Mineralschiefer Trocken Riesling 2019

Very fresh & very mineral on the nose - with warm stones, flint, the scent you get when the first raindrops hit a warm pavement. On the palate this is taut, pure, linear, impeccably balanced with juicy lemony acidity and flinty minerality. plus a touch of sweet peach way in the background. 2019 really hits the sweet spot! — 16 hours ago
