Tasting Notes

Norheimer Kirschheck 

2015 - Norheimer Kirschheck Riesling Spätlese
Nose clear and fresh, pure and spicy, with cherry and green apple notes. Flint stone minerality on the palate with lots of apple and grapefruit. Finishes spicy, with grapefruit and salt.


2014 - Kahlenberg Riesling trocken
In the nose you have a beautiful mix of citrus and lemon fruit with great flintstone-like minerality. Great spiciness, slight honey from the first aging. On the palate super elegant and juicy, perfectly balanced mix of spicy minerality, fresh fruit of lime and grapefruit, creamy and perfect acidity.

Oberhäuser Brücke

2016 - Oberhäuser Brücke Riesling Spätlese
What a joyful and concentrated nose, fresh herbs from the meadow mixed with powerful exotic fruit notes, deep minerality. The minerality in itself is a pleasure – something between slate, loam and firestone – amazing! On the palate full of power and fresh-cool at the same time, spicy minerality is the body for a perfect acidity-fruit-mix, it finishes very clear, mineralic and long. Definitely one of the best Spätlese Rieslings we had from 2016! 

1986 - Oberhäuser Brücke Riesling Kabinett trocken
For our #fridaytradition we received a nice bottle from winery #dönnhoff from @asktoni at his #asktonigoessipgate event... Thanks for keeping it so long for us. It is a #oberhäuserbrücke #kabinett #dry #riesling from the year #1986... The nose is a nicely aged nose that only Riesling has: Honey, herbs, caramel, raisins and green apples. On the palate it comes quite herbal and stony with a crisp acidity. It is an intense complexity of quince, slate minerality, slight fruit notes citrus, grapefruit peel and unripe berries with a super spicy finish. Wicked. This Riesling is 32 years old – and it can do ten more at least! 


2016 - Hermannshöhle Riesling GG
World famous vineyard, in 2016 better than ever. Very deep, so elegant, absolutely high-end. In the nose perfectly strong spicy and smoky minerality, crystal clear peach and grapefruit fruit notes, fresh and fine. On the palate perfectly balanced acidity, salty minerality, elegant and racy, everlasting mineral finish. Wicked! Must have Riesling of 2016!

2016 - Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese
In the nose exalted and sublime, with nice fruit and fine minerality, on the palate quite powerful and juicy, fruit notes of melon and pear, later raspberry and apricots, powerful minerality and acidity. A fantastic example of what great Riesling tastes like.

1998 - Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese
Golden yellow color, nice oxidation in the nose with mild caramel and plum flavors, on the palate a fresh acidity, with apricots, pear and black currant, beautiful minerality, great balance, long finish. 

1997 - Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Auslese
A crazy combination of caramel, licorice, smoke, pepper, dry plum, allspice and raisins with strong oxidation and color like a cognac. Unbelievable!
