Very aromatic white riesling, nose plenty of peach, minerals, petrol, lemon zest, ginger. Big body in mouth, with very decent acidity and round, long, mineral finish. What a wine. — 9 days ago
In poetic prose, Terry Thiese’s review says nothing beyond this wine being “deeper than terroir.” Not a tangible note or descriptor. Indeed, it is so layered, multidimensional, constantly in motion with intersections of aromas, flavors, textures, and tone. Perhaps the best we can do is capture a snapshot of this spectacular Riesling Auslese in motion.
It’s beautifully expressive and exceedingly generous. A pale hay color and more reserved aromatically compared to the explosive flavor profile. Nose of spiced pineapple, bruised apple, and smokey fumey petrol. Full bodied, well balanced high acid that loses battle to dark buckwheat honeyed notes.
The finish lasts forever. Not satisfying. Not even a little bit. — 4 days ago
Sensational Riesling. Beautifully balanced fruit and acidity, with a long finish. — 9 days ago
Not sweet but an interesting creaminess to it (not Chardonnay buttery). Fruity, tiniest bit of tartness. Maybe faint nuttiness? Can’t pinpoint it, but it’s different and good. — 22 days ago
First bottle for new year at Frog Hollow 1/7/19 after weeks of no or Kirkland wines. What a relief and a stunner of mature Auslese. Golden honey color and explosion of floral and petrol acidic notes and stones with rich unctuous palate that's so balanced and long complex finish. So yummy didn't want to mix with food. — 13 days ago
