OMG 21 Baden Scheurebe is lights out! Psycho nose. Unreal xmas spice, sweet sage, minerals, sweet grass, indica, herbs of all sorts, black currants and grapefruit. Just sickness. 9.5 nose. Out of this world. Wow, what acid, what grip, what flamboyance! Chock full of energy, green fruits and so much acid and drive. This pushes on the finish like nothing else and is god tier juicy. I love this wine. So long. More to come with air. This got so aristocratic and elegant with air. Wow. — 6 months ago
A Gemischter Satz from Burgenland, slightly naturalistic, a bit funky, highly drinkable.
A flowery nose with some ripe pear, apple, summer meadow but also a salty, herby note adding an interesting edge.
On the palate this is vibrant, energetic, juicy. There’s a bit of grip, a beautiful mouthfeel, nice mid palate presence. Yellow fruit, ripe & a bit bruised, with great juiciness and an underlying salty minerality.
This has character, interesting edges and good depth. And disappears in a blink.

Opened yesterday, when it was breathtaking, notes from today. On the nose: candied ginger, molasses, cinnamon spice, honey. On the palate: lovely spice and acidity, good sweetness, but beautifully tempered by the lively acidity. Spicy ginger and molasses on the finish. Yum.

Bright, concentrated hazy lemon yellow with flecks of marigold.
Very fragrant, with aromas of elderflower, dried apricot, unripe yellow peach, lychee, honeysuckle, red apple skin, sage, preserved lemon, candied ginger, white grapefruit, and almond skin, which carry through to the mouthwatering palate.
A complex intersection of floral, stone fruit, saline, and savory notes, this is a show-stopping wine and an incredible value at $30 retail. It’s dry and lightly tannic, with tangy acidity and a long and evolving finish.
I had this on its own and it was delightful. I’m certain it would be a fantastic pairing with a whole bunch of different dishes and cuisines, but I kind of feel like it deserves to be savored alone as the star of the show. — a year ago
