For our staff pick at work we get to try two of the same varietals and vote.
This week I chose Henry of Pelham Riesling VQA Vs Angels Gate Sussreserve Riesling VQA. On the palate, the Henry of Pelham is light-bodied with a light spritz and delicate sweetness that is balanced by vibrant acidity from citrus flavours. The Angels Gate is off-dry, medium bodied, crisp, flavours of lemon/grapefruit, peach and stonefruit with mineral and floral tones. Both bottles are CAD $14.95 at the Lcbo.
Angels Gate scored by popular vote🙋🏻♀️
Visite de la cave vinicole des Hospices civiles de Strasbourg lors de la journée d'accueil des nouveaux agents hospitaliers . Elle abrite le plus vieux vin du monde : un Riesling de 1472, qui ne peut plus être bu en raison de son pH beaucoup trop acide (2,6) mais le sommelier nous a quand même laisser le "sniffer" ahah. A savoir qu'à l'époque, les malades payaient leurs soins en parcelles de terres, en vignes et autres pièces d'or, voilà pourquoi cette cave existe sous les fondations de l'ancien hôpital civil de Strasbourg 😊 (c'était la minute du culture du jour). 🍷🏥💉💊 #infirmière#nurse#infirmier#wine#riesling#vin
This is from 2014 and is Martin Müllen and his son Johannes. Martin with 15/16 has broken into the top tier of dry wine producers in Germany and the sky is the limit for his estate. Martin is the kindest most earnest man I’ve never met. Just the act of knowing him will change someone into a better person. Truly an amazing estate and man. Johannes is a great kid who just did an internship at Egon Müller and Johannes told me that Egon said, “I know of your estate. You should be much more famous.”
Las Compuertas ~ Riesling 2015
Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza
Color amarillo pajizo con destellos dorados, muy brilloso.
Aromas a fruta blanca como anana y pera, minerales y un toque cítrico.
En boca presenta una entrada seca, algo de untuosidad y final medio.
With the #Riesling in my hand, I buy just as much as I can carry, into the forest before I turn around. I thought the world would be different but I still love you. As long as we have #ART , I think I will be okay. #Satnam 🌵✨🌹
