-Rugged Riesling-

DAY 1
Served with the Vinloq System
👀Dark yellow golden honey. Unfiltered
👃Sour citrus, wax, savory herbs with tea & mint
👅Honeyed, candied stone fruit. Ripe apples. Very herbal with pronounced acidity. Salty. The finish is dry, long, & delicious
So interesting. So expressive. Superb clarity. Singular flavor profile likely due to botrytis and long elevage. Just…wow

The remaining wine was Slow Decanted with Vinloq & refrigeration

Sampled this on 2 more occasions

DAY 15
👃Bold, distinctive & precise
👅Probably would not guess riesling in a blind tasting. Tea, cognac & sherry all make appearances. Bruised/ripe apple is only perceived sweetness
Virtually unchanged in 15 days. Feels very sturdy. Probably would be an interesting wine to cellar.

Jakob Tennstedt is a new winemaker in the Mosel. He biodynamically farms 50-100 year old vines he restored on steep blue slate terraces. This wine was so laborius to make that he will not do it again. I am glad I was able to try it this time and it gives me motivation to try his other wines🥂

I just don’t know. On the fence with this Had this last night. So, while no issues of VA or mouse, it was polarizing; both interesting and also very rustic. It’s a different expression of Mosel Riesling. But having said that, this is his an early vintage for him and I’m interested in the journey on how he develops his techniques over time. As someone who is also constantly refining and focusing each year, I feel that drinking a wine like this leads me to give more thought to it over the years. It’s a very rusty c expression of Riesling but I think its a little more compelling then a lot of similar stuff on the market like this. I loved my fish tacos that I ate with this however.
