An exceptional example of a great Madeira....all the tenets that qualify as such: fruit, spice, sweet, and acidity...roasted orange peel🍊,brown sugar molasses, blossom, a tinge of savory and the beautiful tang that Malvasia brings to Madeira. #1989 — 6 years ago
What a sweetheart of a wine! Okay, so I admit, if I had a desert island wine it would come from this vineyard because the wines consistently show layered complexity and amazing depth of flavor together with gorgeous acidity that is the key to their aging potential.
#1989 was a year in which #botrytis set in quantity, but early, clean botrytis that gives an already spicy wine even more complexity and flavor--she's my pretty red Mosella! #Riesling #ÜrzigerWürzgarten #spätlese — 7 years ago

Landgraf von Hessen is now known as Prinz von Hessen, but the estate is the same. Bone-dry, sleek and saline, it cries out for smoked salmon or even a soft cheese. Drink now. It won't improve. #LandgrafvonHessen #PrinzvonHessen #1989 #Riesling #Kabinett — 7 years ago
