Checking in on this one tonight.

Nose has under-ripe peach, tart green apple with the wet mineral notes on high alert.
Palate has clementine peel, under-ripe tangerine and (light) wet slate.

This halbtrocken seems a little ackward tonight, maybe better tomorrow, or in a few more years...

Had with spicy tacos and it was brilliant. Mouthwatering sweetness, nothing cloying. Apples and pears and some salty kick.

Ripe apricot, apple, white flower / geometric and premises, sense of proportion

My favorite Saar multi-vineyard Riesling blend. Picking up more tart green apple that prior bottles, also wet slate and light petrol notes are becoming apparent with more bottle age.

Great wine to sneak into a film festival in my water bottle tonight, yum!

Lots of enjoyable trocken around, few as exuberant, long and well tensioned as Barrel X. 2017 is outrageous.

Yum! Earthy. Has the Lauer style but a fraction of the impact of his other wines. Still damn damn good. Drink all day every day type of wine

My go to, house Riesling, can't be overtaken at $18.
The '15 is slightly better, but you can't argue with the freshness of the current vintage.
