Charta Riesling 2017

First Charta Riesling I have tried (and still the only one I have ever come across). Complex aromatics of white flowers, crushed stone, and red apple. Barely off dry with adequate acidity - this is designed as the perfect food wine. Very good at $19 (on sale).

11.5% abv - 9.8 g/l RS - 6.9 g/l acidity

More on Charta Riesling: An esteemed group of 30 top VDP growers in Rheingau who release this style of Riesling. Must meet the groups high standards to release in their inimitable bottles (heavy, dark hued glass ready for the cellar) with the embossed Romanic arches.

Johannisberger Hölle Kabinett Riesling 1985

Smoky petrol and wet mushroom, but an attractive honeyed quality keeps it fresh. Sweetness muted by age and blazing acidity — 5 years ago

Rüdesheim Klosterlay Kabinett Feinherb Riesling 2011

Vintage 2011 / It’s a sunny day and we can eat outside. On those days Riesling seems to be made in heaven: ananas, quince, vanilla, butterscotch in smell. And that typical great balance between acidity and sweet. This is kabinet feinherb with nine bottle-years. It reconciles me with life, even in covid-19 days. Fine, very fine wine from the Rheingau. / Paired with shrimps and eggplant, Sichuan style — a year ago

Johannisberger Hölle Auslese Riesling 2001

The magic formula acidity + sweetness in perfect harmony. Covered my palate like a baseball groundskeeping team during a rain delay. — 5 years ago

Johannisberger Vogelsang Kabinett Riesling 2001

Lyle Fass

First wine in a while that I actually will drink and not taste. A deep golden aged color with a complex nose of savory/sweet. Caramel/foie gras, opulent. But a minerality emerges after 3-5 minutes. Beautiful fresh palate with some pretty notes of lime zest, light petrol and terrific finesse. Finishes light and citrusy with that lime showing on the finish. Will surely open up over the next few hours. Ready to go. UPDATE: on day 2 this improved vastly with lovely herbal aromas, and amazingly vivid and deep fruit and long complex finish. Wow. — 6 years ago

Johannisberg 'Gold' Eiswein Riesling 2007

I don’t drink Eiswein often but this bottle was a treat that was muled back from the old country. Very floral on the nose; honey sweet on the attack but there was fantastic acidity to give it the lift necessary to keep the balance. — 2 years ago

Johannisberger Klaus Spätlese Riesling 1989

Good bit of petrol on the nose. Not quit as rich as I would have imagined. Plenty of fruit left. Drinking really lovely. Oh Lotus of Siam, how I cannot wait to be back! — 4 years ago
