Sneak peaking on Wittmanns 2019 for the Morstein launching on thursday. There is no doubt that the German Rieslings remains one of the under priced gems of the wine world.
The Westhofener presents a pronounced intense nose, youthful but complex and nuanced aromas, well defined characters that is playing in several clusters. Lemon zest, white pears and plum juice followed by ginger and a prominent wet stone minerality over a savoury and salty canvas. A cut through acidity drives the palate through an intense fruit profile and a solid finish.

Paired with pan fried Salomon filet, creamed cabbage and a soy and brown butter vinaigrette with plenty of lemon juice.

A little heat on finish; has not really developed yet; always refined.

Banging VDP juice! Wild flowers, apricot and acacia honey on the nose. Rich and ripe with layers of stone and tropical fruit finishing with a bit of sweet lime. Full in the mouth with mouthwatering acidity. Extreme Riesling!

Solid, showing a great developed cumquat marmalade complexity upon opening, but evolved to become more of an intense candied lime. Great stuff.

Fantastic wingman for lots of dishes, from corn, bacon and okra flatbread to swordfish. Got a bit fatigued before we made it to the last sip, but a strong sprint, indeed!
