Vom Roten Schiefer Trocken Riesling 2017

Delectable Wine
9.0

Pink grapefruit and ripe peach are tinged with fresh ginger and smoky black tea on the nose and the silken-textured, lees-inflected yet generously juicy palate. The luscious finish harbors more than enough bite and smoky pungency to invigorate. While there seems to be nothing remotely approaching consensus on why crumbly iron-rich red slate of the sort involved here (in both the Nonnenberg and parts of the Marienburg) tends to imprint Riesling with distinctively luscious citricity, deep peachiness and smoky accents, the effect is undeniable and unmistakable.

Masterful clarity juxtaposed against textural playfulness. Punches so far above it’s price point. — 2 months ago

Marienburg Falkenlay Erst Lage Grosses Gewächs Riesling 2015

Lovely Moseley mineral nose. Gern apple on the palate. Nice density. Almost creamy. Love this wine.

As this opens it has this rocky intensity. Minerals bound with fruit. Sweet rocks on the finish. So good.

Burg Layer Schlossberg Riesling Kabinett 2018

Brief notes from the VDP auctions, so take this with a grain of salt. Classic kabi and one of my favourites this auction. Juicy yellow stone fruits, herbs, racy acidity, impressive length. Very elegant.

NB: Kabi's from this set of auctions have been somewhat disappointing (looking at you Egon), but surprisingly, the Bad Krueznach auction delivered on some really classic and delicious kabi's, most of which went for reasonable prices. This kabi, the Goldloch from Joh. Bapt. Schafer (best value buy imo), the Kirchspiel from Groebe, Kai Schatzel's Pettenthal, and of course, the Keller Schubertslay. From the Mosel, I only really enjoyed the kabi's from Fritz Haag, Clemens Busch, and Grunhaus, but I felt they were playing on a lower level. Would be good to taste all these together again to compare.

@George Doolan The Schafer kabi's awesome, but like last year... Weak prices. He needs to up his PR game 🤣
