Photos #Riesling 2015, part 2!
This time we started with an odd bunch of #Mosel , #Franken , #Kamptal and #Wachau ; after that we had a flight of #Pfalz ; and finally a flight of #Nahe .
And to finish it all with an extra bottle, back to Wachau in the form of #FXPichler .
This time the wines fared much better than in the previous tasting a month ago, where the Rheingau wines were just flabby and tropical. These wines instead were lively, vibrant wines with lots of precision and acid structure; the warm vintage showed, but only in the richness of fruit, not at the expense of focus or freshness.
My favorites this time were impressive #GutHermannsberg GG #Hermannsberg , intense and all too young #Diel GG #Pittermännchen , complex and textural #ReichsratvonBuhl GG #Ungeheuer and waxy, honeyed #HeymannLöwenstein GG #UhlenRothLay .
#Odinstal #Muschelkalk wasn't as impressive, but instead showed really attractive lightness, elegance and freshness.
#Dönnhoff GG #OberhauserBrucke was impressive in its own right, but just didn't have the cut to make it to the top.
Mørk, let røget duft med peber og violer og en kølig strøm af saftig frugt med slank struktur og fine tanniner. Røde kirsebær, granatæble, skovsyre, mynte. Muschelkalk rot er enkel elegance fra vinmagerparret Martin Lichtenberger og Adriana González i østrigske Burgenland
We just quickly change some textures. Aufwertungstendenzen, Abwertungstendenzen.
