Zeppelin

Cloudy and grey to red-brown Amber through the pour. Leesy-teasy. This voluminous lady sprung a shock white, unexpectedly pure pate. Cinnamon baked apple and caramel are soft suggestions initially. Barley and malt cameo as themselves with a whole jar of raw honey and ginger snap crumbles. These aromas are deceptive. She’s not that sweet, really. She snaps between a mineral texture and a pretzel bun with a Hawaiian bread middle. There is lingering almond butter after a briny lemon and a citrus tea that drags it all back. There is a decidedly German depth to the beer, which embraces a baked bread quality, but this is lean and sleek, sidestepping the heartburn of some styles. Hazelnut oil, almond flower, pecan, and sunflower seed persist in a lees-y postlude. #brauereimaxliebinger #unfiltered #zeppelin #germanbeerday #deutschland #Deutschebier #bier #beer #lees #strangebrew #gettheLedout #Hindenbeerg — a year ago

9.1

A very serious wine that has tons of acidity and clarity. There's a richness here that can come from only one thing: extensive lees stirring... And sure enough that's what they do. Very good wine that reminds me a bit of some burgundy. #portugalwine #lees#sisab — 2 years ago

"#Rothenpfad" means "red path" in #German and that refers to the soil in this parcel, which is composed of #redslate; a rare occurrence on the #Mosel that is responsible for the richness, intensity, and #minerality of these long-lived #Rieslings. The #2011 #GG is a blockbuster that thrives on plenty of advance #decanting and longs for a wide range of various food companions. #ClemensBusch

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Alte Reben Riesling 2013

One of the featured wineries at the Gala Luncheon cooked by @DavidKinch... #ErniLoosen's #GGs are making headlines around the world, which is no surprise given their stunning quality and extra layers of complexity after 24 months on the #lees. This #Wehlener had an almost creamy texture backed by a core of fine acidity, which paired beautifully with the scallop dish created by Kinch. @DrLoosenWines #DrLoosen #WehlenerSonnenuhr #Riesling #AlteReben — 3 years ago
