Yesterday’s Wednesday Wine Committee, hosted by @Jeff Meyer , was so educational with fantastic German & Austrian wines. 1 sparkler, 5 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert wine. All served blind as usual.

Runner up for my white of the day. Being Auslese in style, there was a ton of richness yet it didn’t feel like there was a massive amount of RS. Candied tropical mango, lychee, grapefruit, slate/minerality, with great acidity. I called this Auslese styled German Riesling.

Peaches, apricots, and guava on the nose. Vibrant acidity makes this drink more like a Spatlese. Very tasty!

Not stored properly so it has aged prematurely. From a 1.5L that smelled of petrol(marmalade) and ripe peaches, honey and ripe mango. On the palate it still has incredibly intense honey and ripe tropical fruit character. The sweetness is balanced by the mouthwatering acidity and has wonderful Mosel minerality.

Pleasant lime and citrus. Youthful acid and prominent sweetness. Very subtle mineral, if any. Glimpses of structure. Thin mouthfeel for an Auslese. Promising but just not ready.

Good juice, the sweet nectar of Riesling.

Fantastic, with lots of sugar but intense acidity that makes it drink off-dry. Complex, long, and delicious.

This wine is gorgeous right now and promises to become more so with age. Petrol is already coming out and there is a great length and balance to the finish, especially given the price point.
