First off, the confession: I love and embrace Hofgut Falkenstein with little reserve. They produce Rieslings of serious individual character and precision which are also tasty, approachable, absolutely brilliant with a range of dishes, and of tremendous, in some cases absurd value. This 2018 Krettnacher Euchariusberg kabinett—quite pointedly off-dry—was no deviation from the mean: stony and fresh with notes of ripe white peach, green apple, petrol, and rubber, it showed a sharp attack, ethereal mid-palate, and a fresh, sweet-leaning finish. I suspect these prices to catch up to other more widely-vaunted names.

Tonight I have opened the 2016 Hofgut Falkenstein Krettnacher Euchariusberg Riesling Kabinett. This is from the Mosel/Saar region of Germany with Alc. 8.5% vol.

On the nose there is apple, peach, pear, lime, petroleum, slate, steel and citrus blossom.

On the palate there is mango, green apple, white peach, wet slate, petroleum and a good minerality.

The wine is delicious and light to medium bodied with a racy medium to medium + acidity that leads into a medium + to long fruit filled finish. You can drink this all day long and it would be gone before you knew it. Please stay safe and enjoy your weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

deliciously sweet, but balanced with lovely backend acid.

2016 Alte Reben - So much potential... zingy. Flies around your palate like a trapeze act.

Delicious! I got delicate notes of apricot, apple and honeydew with balanced. Off-dry with hints of stone.

Very nice. Crazy acid. But still balanced with good white fruit and the right sweetness. Excellent Mosel.

Stor doft med lime, stenfrukt och mineral. Fantastisk koncentration men samtidigt så lättdrucket.
