Escherndorfer Lump Erste Lage Riesling 2017

Vintage 2017 / Erste Lage Eschendorfer Lump #riesling #spätlese with 92 gram residual sugar. Way too young. Almost no smell at this stage of life. But só promising and terrific balance. — 2 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 — 4 years ago

Egon Müller

Scharzhofberger Spätlese Riesling Auction 1994

This 22-year-old #Saar #Riesling was as fresh as spring itself--the balance between the steely acidity and gentle honeysuckle sweetness left us breathless--easily the fastest-to-empty bottle of them all--BRAVO #EGON!!! #EgonMüller #Scharzhofberger #spätlese #1994 — 4 years ago

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 — 4 years ago

Weingut Knebel

Winninger Röttgen Spätlese Alte Reben Riesling 2006

A fine example of late-harvest #Riesling that is nearly ten years old and beautifully evolved--honeycomb and tropical fruit notes with ample botrytis flavors leave a lasting, very clean impression. #Knebel #WinningerRöttgen #spätlese #Mosel

Weingut Schloss Sommerhausen

Sommerhäuser Steinbach Sonnenuhr Spätlese Riesling 2006

WOW! This declassified #Auslese is such the #botrytis bomb... packed with layers of luscious caramel and creme brulée flavors that linger decadently on the palette. Had this with fois gras at The Village Pub last week and it was an extraordinary pairing! #2006 #SchlossSommerhausen #Sonnenuhr #Spätlese
