Rauenthaler Gehrn Kabinett Riesling 1988

A great old friend! Bright amber color but a refined delicacy that comes after nearly 30 years in bottle...classic #Rheingau that made for a perfect aperitif wine and at a mere €40 how can one claim?!?! #Riesling #Kabinett #KlosterEberbach #RauenthalGehrn #1988

Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland Riesling Spatlese 1934

#1934 was one of the three best vintages of that decade in #Germany, along with 1937 & 1938.
#Staatsweingut #Rheingaus produced in this era were excellent; especially those from the steep, #slate soil sites of the majestic Rüdesheimer Berg.
This is a perfectly balanced wine when it comes to sweetness versus acidity and in no way a big, fat, syrupy overstated example of late-picked
#Riesling, but rather restrained by comparison...a wine one can easily drink more than one glass of--GRANDIOS!!! #klostereberbach #tba

Spatburgunder Eiswein Beerenauslese Riesling 1977

Certainly not everyday one gets to try a 1977 #klostereberbach #eiswein #beerenauslese. Unusual acidity, but a treat nonetheless. — 5 years ago

Aside from vintage port this may have been the most dismal vintage of the decade but then you probably haven't come across one of these curious anomalies--extremely raisiny, intense Pinot laced with super ripe acidity--Eiswein character abounds!
