Fun things: it looks, smells, and tastes richhhhhh but it has a dry-wine ease about it and isn’t expensive. This is the affordable athleisure of wine. Smooth, chic, and a rich shade of gold plus the aromas (honeysuckle, dried apricot, the blood of happiness) and then an ever so slight mineral-moss-mushroom zip glides within and you think this may overpower you with regal rule but it is (barely) dry and slurpable keeping it casual. So yeah affordable athleisure in a bottle. Rubs your shoulders like a shroom-trip love that means all it does in the moment and that’s all it needs to. It’s just wine. That’s all it needs to be because it rocks.

Not sure who the producer is or whether it is in fact a Zeltinger Himmelreich, because it’s a cryptic private label bottling from Garagiste. Extroverted nose features ripe apple, some peach, and some background stony minerality. Round and fruity in the mouth, it seems a tad sweeter than its “trocken” label. But it’s got nice acids and some shy slate in the juicy finish. Nice inexpensive Riesling.

From 1st Garagiste haul. $17. Spatlese shines thru. Aromatically first whiff I was in heaven with its petrol/minerality combo but the palate became watered down simplicity and I understood the price. Not a bad btl of wine but John's verbiage and my aching desire for more RSL got the better of me perhaps. Spatlese density almost kept it from not feeling trocken. Few wks ago =( 2018 in 6/21. Hv a 2nd NFL still...
