Syrah 2013

I'll start off by saying that I think less-than-ideal storage conditions marred this tasting with Kai. It's a struggle here really because I really like their Malaysian importer. I can understand the difficulties in maintaining an effective cold chain in Malaysia, so I sincerely hope this gets better.

Having said that, this was my favorite in Kai's line-up despite the slightly advanced wine. Good perfume, sporting smokey black fruits, herbs, spices, violets, and wood (which was a touch distracting). I felt the palate should have been livelier - dark-fruited, spicy, and earthy, with heavy charred notes permeating throughout. The finish has a lot fruit sweetness, with a lick of caramel and balsamic. Nice wine, though not one I'd actively seek.

To be frank I think too much oak was used here, but not in the same liberty as in Barossa Shiraz. It's more like Guigal vs Gonon... maybe that's a bit extreme... Jamet vs Gonon... though not quite right still. I like Kai, but I gotta follow my palate at times like this.

Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg Auslese Riesling #18 1976

Kudos to Weinart again for being absolute champs in customer service. Bought this wine and the first thing they were concerned about was the dark colour, so they contacted the winery to ask about it and gave me a heads up. Even said I could return it if it was less than ideal. Turned out there was nothing to worry about as the wine was singing! Impeccable cellaring by Weinart again 👏

The 76' Grunhaus Auslese 18 was the perfect wine to end an epic night. My notes were far from detailed, which was probably the result of the many bottles that lead up to this one - impossibly pure and light, especially at this level of botrytis. Lime, orange peel, beeswax, mint, sea spray. Beautiful balance and incredible finish!

Deidesheimer Paradiesgarten Trocken Riesling

Fantastic food wine. Paired with uni, oysters, spice-rubbed pork chop, hamachi crudo with persimmon*. Balanced. A surprising smorgasbord of aromas + flavors for its age and price: jasmine, yuzu, apricot, lychee, persimmon, white pepper and even a slight petrol note. Luxurious and on the fatter side but the pork liked that. Lindsey and I give it two thumbs up.

Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg Auslese Riesling 1993

I really do love this producer. Herby and salty nose, coupled with a medley of fruits ranging from oranges to peaches to mango. So much flavour on the palate, yet mind-bogglingly light. Long aftertaste. That's Grunhaus for you! The balance between sugar and acid is perfect here, which makes it so easy to drink heaps of. A really fresh bottle that would continue to age nicely. — a month ago
