My favorite from the whole wine tasting on my birthday — 11 days ago
This has been my go-to domestic Riesling for years now. I agree that there are often interesting differences between vintages. For me 2017 seems to have slightly more residual sugar than other years but my guess is that this is only a matter of perception and it’s actually attributed to reduced acidity. — a month ago
@Delectable Wine this is AP 27 and is Alte reben. Thanks.
What a nose. Gorgeous apple spices, complex apple skins, slate and petrol. Airiness. So clean. So mineral. So bright. So decadent on the palate. The old vines really add so much. Creamy and electric with gorgeous pear and apple fruit. Really fills the mouth. Confectionary fruit and so complex. Wow. Juicy and clean. Sappy and dense with elegance and just so much confectionary fruit and sugar that just makes this delightful. Truly impressive. — a month ago
A strong, mown grass/plastic note on the nose, with chalk dust. Not entirely pleasant, but interesting. Outstanding on the palate, with a well balanced chalky, lemony, minerally flavor, with an almost crunchy aspect probably due to near effervescence. Really good, especially at $21. — 12 days ago
Vintage 1991 | Hermannshof Niersteiner Rehbach from Riesling. Mahony colour, very clear. Smell with rosemary, figs, peach. Awesome balance with lots of acidity. Birthyear of my son and his wife, who were legally married today. The church wedding is postponed because covid travel restrictions. — 21 days ago
From a backwater in the mosel. A whole 6 miles from jj prum. One of the great vineyards in the mosel at half the price of prum. An insane wine. Needs an overnight open in the fridge to come alive.
Nose is perfect dried peaches. Some perfect. fresh peach. Some mosel age. Like a hint of petrol peach perfume. A touch of creaminess and confectionary sugar. Gorgeous. So elegant.
Palate is mineral. Dried peach extract. Perfect midsummer peach. Mineral spine. Elite deliciousness.
A week in you get that aged mosel toasty richness. Man. A unique experience.
Bought from fass selections.
