Hallgartener Kabinett Trocken Riesling 2007

Fred #Prinz' attractive #Rheingau #Rieslings inevitably say "pear extract" to me. They also have a mineral floral aspect that gives them a racy complexity and they are consistently well-structured, allowing them to age for decades. This #2007 was an unmitigated triumph for him and one that after nearly a decade has blossomed into a gorgeous #Riesling! #spätlese — 8 years ago

Eltviller Kalbspflicht Auslese Cabinet Riesling 1959

1959 Auslese for how much?! There is something truly unique and precious about a wine that has never left its place of origin... it's what some call provenance.
This now defunct
#Rheingau estate was at this time on top of its game and produced some of the finest #Rieslings from #GrandCru vineyard sites in #Eltville and #Kiedrich. Eltviller #Kalbspflicht Riesling #Auslese from Jacob Fischer Erben was so fresh and lively that the closet guess was 1976!
Where else can you find such a phenomenal wine from an awesome year that is pushing 60 years of age for $250 in a restaurant???

Schloss Groenesteyn

Kiedricher Wasseros Beerenauslese Riesling

#Rieslings from the #Rheingau region produced in the legendary #1976 vintage are still going strong as was recently proven by this little bundle of joy from a half bottle, no less--that's the good news--sadly this estate closed its doors following the '96 vintage, which makes treasures like this lovely Kiedricher Wasserrose #Beerenauslese all the more precious! #goldkapsel

Kiedrich Turmberg Auslese Riesling 2009

This gorgeous wine was flat out AWESOME!!!
I've always liked this vintage and
#Weil nailed it was classic examples of balanced #Rieslings from a big ripe, but not too ripe, vintage. This #KiedrichTurmberg was so perfectly integrated between acidity and sweetness that it never came off as top-heavy or cloying in the least--this is AMBROSIA!!! #2009 #RobertWeil #Rheingau #Rieslinglover

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 — 8 years ago

Go ahead and tell me about how overstated, unbalanced and atypical #German #Rieslings from the #2003 vintage can be...after you try this amazing effort from one of their finest producers you'll have egg all over your face! #Keller #Hubacker #spätlese #Rheinhessen — 9 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.

Lenchen Auslese Riesling 2012

Here we have one of the very finest #Rheingau estates, which is consistently producing pristine #Rieslings and doing so by 100% #organic/#biodynamic farming methods. This #2012 #OestrichLenchen #Auslese #Goldkapsel is a marvel of richness and structure... an impressive array of ripe flavors enhanced with delicate amounts of #botrytis that stood up beautifully next to our chocolate/rhubarb #dessert! — 8 years ago

2007 produced some outstanding #Mosel #Rieslings and this off-dry quaffer from the Fritz #Haag estate sparkles with ripe mineral highlights and makes a refreshing partner to a wide range of dishes including home made potato pancakes!

Egon Müller

Wiltinger Braune Kupp Spätlese Riesling 1993

#1993s were, across the board, perfectly-focused, jewel-like #Rieslings, and the #Saar region made particularly beautiful wines.
#EgonMüller makes a habit of excellence and this lovely #Spätese disappeared very quickly from all of our glasses!
