Better late than never, so... Happy New Year, Delectable 🎉🍾 To another year of great wines!
My NYE wine and what better wine to cap off the year than one I poked my nose in. The 2017 Hubacker is a real stunner. Power without weight! It's a term I certainly overuse, but I think the best wines all have this trait. Powerful, very ripe, and exotic, yet never tiresome with every sip. The finish is tart, zesty, and sappy. It doesn't quite have the laser precision, but the acidity's still very intense, just rounder. With air, more spice components appear on the palate and the stoney minerality appears to be clearer. It's so young - even after 3 days, none of that intense fruit has shed away. A great wine in the making!
The sheer presence of this wine reminds me of KP's older style. But this still feels like KP 2.0, especially in that finish and texture (it isn't quite as weighty as before). Doesn't matter, I love both styles.
Really happy to be sharing this wine with my loved ones. 2017 was tough on Hubacker. Picking it was a race against time. Disease pressure was high. Hail had damaged the grape skins earlier and there was a decent amount of rain during harvest. But KP's just a master act - his timing's impeccable, balancing the payoff between ripeness and rot. — 9 months ago
Surprisingly crisp and creamy. Aromas: buttery tropical fruits..taste the creamy smoothie. Notes of honey, green apple, pear, peach . Medium bodied. Acidic finish that ends too quickly. Fun on a weeknight 3.8 — 9 months ago
From a site within Goldtropfchen this is an absolute stunner. 2017 sweet wines are 🔥🔥. Huge nose of apricot, minerals, sweet peaches, vulcanized rubber but in that Mosel way. So good. Amazing balance and richness. Like pink grapefruit with sugar on top and then a whiplash acidity, minerality and salinity. My god this is good. So clean and nimble while being intense and rich. The Mosel ballet. Finishes bone fry. Stunning wine. Coming to an inbox near you. — 9 months ago
