Thörnicher Ritsch "Gacken Oben" Kabinett Feinherb Mosel Riesling 2019

Nose has powder sugar dusted lemon torte, wet slate, dry lemon zest, powdered sugar and lime peel.

Palate has beautiful lemon curd pastry, lime zest, under-baked pastry dough, ethereal sugar from angels lightly dancing but never touching the ground, medium acidity in perfect balance.

Might be the best Feinherb ever...? I cannot wait for this to evolve in the coming days.

Decanted 4H at time of notes, more time appreciated; notes to be updated on day three.

144 Hour Update: Nose has orange zest, lime zest, powder sugar dusted flakey pastry, peach skin and dehydrated orange. Palate has lime peel, lemon flesh, ripe nectarine, confectioners sugar, nectarine flesh and faint moist sandstone notes. A beautiful wine, but now score improvement. Revisit 2039-44, minimum.

Klusserather Bruderschaft Auslese Saar Riesling 1994

Fragrant, luscious, mature fruit. Some pineapple and petrol. Absolutely classy. Good acid, not overly ripe.

Will live on nicely if not transform for decades.

Thörnicher Ritsch Auslese Riesling 1993

Ageless, so incredibly fresh, the old Ludes wines never disappoint. Great poise and balance, just the sweet side of halbtrocken. Dense fruit, mouth coating. Beautiful wine. — a month ago

We just finished the bottle opened 2.5wk earlier; about 1/3 left, it barely had slowed down in all that time open.

@Severn Goodwin indestructible right? Full decant in the morning for us every time. Never an off bottle in the case or so we’ve opened of Ludes…and corks are pristine.

Only ever had one Ludes leaker (95?), but even that was in fine condition. Never needed an ah-so (or Durand), standard screw always gets the job done on these.

Seneca Lake Dry Riesling 2016

Paired nicely with Thai chicken curry. Medium gold color. Petrol and plastic on the nose. White grapes, ample sweetness, and a touch of lead on the palate. Past prime as it is lacking acidity and zip. Medium finish and heavy wine for a Riesling. — 2 months ago

Thörnicher Ritsch Spätlese Riesling 2019

Wow ! Fucktastic out of the gate.

Nose is so evocative of the mosel. Blue slate. Green apple skin.

Palate is crystalline sugar. Bright mineral. Perfect green apple. Wow.

Luscious. Some apricot. Rich but balanced. Fantastic density.

Iconic mosel spatlese.

Bought from fass selections.

Stone Hill Winery

Chambourcin 2017

Taking a cue from @Severn Goodwin I’m drinking some MO wine, which is made just a few hours from where I live. I had never had anything by Stone Hill prior to this, assuming it wasn’t very good, but I was wrong. This is a great light bodied red and was great with a slight chill. Black and blue fruits, forest floor, and a mineral streak combine with medium + acid and light tannins for an easy drinking, dry, fresh red. I bought a few of this producer’s wines and look forward to trying the others. A pleasant surprise! — 3 months ago

Nice, not had this one yet. Last time I had a Chambourcin it was from PA.
