Hipping Probeflasche Kabinett Riesling 2015

In many ways this was the wine of the night...a perfect expression of what truly great #German #Riesling is all about: fruit, acidity, ripeness, minerality all rolled into one...never mind that #PrincessCharlotte of England and I share the same birthday of May 2nd, but more importantly this is very serious wine to lay down for my daughter, Maria Katharina, who arrived a few months later! #Keller #Hipping #Riesling #Kabinett — 3 years ago

Fünf 5 Riesling

Tons of flavor in this nice German Reisling. A little more on the sweeter side but still enjoyable. Perfect for BBQ, Picnics, or whatever you wish. #german #reisling — 3 years ago

Interesting wine if you want a red that's very light but not quite a rose. #reidlinrot 2011 #german any wine at #cafeclover nyc is always a treat. — 4 years ago

Felix Morstein Spätburgunder 2012

This fabulous #Pinot dedicated to their eldest son, #Felix, is one of the finest examples of #German #Spätburgunder I've encountered and served from a rare 3 liter double #magnum it really developed and impressed us all in the glass... a mere 120 bottles of the 2013 were auctioned off on the 18th of September. #Keller #Morstein #Felix #PinotNoir #Rheinhessen — 3 years ago

WeinPalais Nordheim

Trocken Acolon 2013

Intense red from #Württemberg. Big nose and mild tannins. #Acolon is a cross between #Lemberger and #Dornfelder, so this wine is as #German as it gets. Ideal companion for heavy Schwabisch meats. — 3 years ago

Weingut Spreitzer

Hattenheimer Wisselbrunnen Riesling 2009

#2009 was a spectacular year for #dry #German #Rieslings and the #Spreitzer brothers made an #OestricherLenchen that lives up to this vintage's reputation. Creamy, silky, mouth-coating concentration with a fine core of ripe acidity to support its innate opulence--well done! #erstegewachs #GG #Rheingau — 4 years ago

Winkeler Jesuitengarten Cabinet Spätlese Riesling 1969

I got this old bottle at a #German #auction about 15 years ago and, on a whim, decided to serve it recently with a shrimp and avocado salad under a delicate, yet rather simple oil and vinegar dressing... the result was sublime as the nearly fifty-year-old bottle was uncannily fresh... a marvelous foil to the sharper, more savory dressing. Yes, it still had some residual sugar and that was a good thing as was the excellent core of ripe acidity that played a strong roll in the wine's remarkable balance--BRAVO! #1969 #JacobHamm #Winkeler #Jesuitengarten #Riesling #Cabinet #Spätlese — 3 years ago

Freiherr Langwerth von Simmern

Rauenthaler Rheingau Kabinett Riesling 1997

The #German #dry wine industry has learned a lot in the past two decades and one aspect is how to deal with #Rieslings innately high acidity. #1997 was a very fine year throughout the various regions, but this is drying out and was clearly not intended for long-term aging in excess of 10 years.
It made a decent partner to food, but not as a straight sipping wine. A modest amount of residual sugar would have created a more balanced wine.
