1985 Zilliken (Forstmeister Geltz) Saarburger Rausch Riesling Auslese

Stellar Night of Bordeaux; 5/15/2015-5/17/2015 (NYC): This was fantastic, still fresh as daisy, but complex and smooth with nice sweetness and incredible acidity. Note: this was the Auction bottling, from 375ml.

2013 Zilliken (Forstmeister Geltz) Saarburger Riesling trocken

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

5/24/2015 - ChristofferS Does not like this wine: NR

Etter to timer i karaffel fremstår vinen noe lukket og ubalansert, så over halve flasken blir satt i kjøleskapet over natten. Notat fra dag 2.

Gul.. Sitrondrops. I munnen sitron og voldsom syre. Veldig gul på alle måter: farge, nese og smakbalansert. Håper ikke dette er et varsku for 2013 årgangen på tørre viner fra Tyskland.

Neste flaske blir ikke åpnet på en god stund, og jeg er usikker på om den vil vinne seg på det. Enten er den i stille fase nå, eller så er syren for voldsom for frukten, og da vil tid i horisontalen ikke kunne redde den.

Another great bottle of this, thanks Dale. As good as I remember, bright citrus, apple and peachy fruit accented with smoke, herbs, and a slatey mineral base beneath. Moderate sweetness (less than most Kabinett) balanced by vibrant acidity, just a fantastic Auslese.

Fabulous!

Nose is slightly muted, possibly shut down.

Honey sweetness but so complex and mineral. The tartness and mineral make you forget the sweetness. The finish is so stoney the wine seems dry.

So good you can drink it now but wait 10-15 years for full awesomeness.

Rieslingfeier 2015 Main Event (The Wythe Hotel, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY): Nose isn't showing much but the palate is explosive - tangerine and chili peppers, sweet&sour. The acid is strong and electric. Delicious.

Thick rich and delicious! Had over 3 days and it didn't budge a hair. A bouquet of petrol, fresh honey and honeycomb, white pepper, white flowers, apples, pears. Slightly sweet on the viscous palate with accents of everything from the nose. A great pairing with roasted chicken and broccoli.

5/8/2015 - AMC Eagle wrote: 94 points

Bright deep hay in colour; nose of sweet ripe green and red apples, some pears and a touch of honey. Nice and smooth on the palate where I'm getting some apricot liqueur, ripe green apples, and some honeyed minerally pineapples; acidity balances out the flavours; has a very nice finish to go along with it. An excellent spatlese with an excellent price tag when I bought this; have one bottle left, wish I bought a case when I had the chance.

Very brief notes from TTTG (blind) (Vernon, CT): The nose is just eh, for some reason, but the palate is WOW. Very fresh, young lemon and sweet orange, peach and apricot, and a huge attack of zippy, citrus acid. Yum!!

Wow, this was magnificent when sufficiently chilled! Honey'ed nose of flowers, nectarines. I had expected this to be much sweeter (given that it's an Auslese), but it seemed like the sweetness had somewhat toned down a notch after all these time in bottle. This was so rich on the palate, but yet felt so light and fresh (acidity) that there wasn't any sense of cloying at all. Very very good! Brought home some, and wife said "go buy more" after trying it! Thank-you very much, JT... :(

Wow it was more than 2 years ago since I last had this. From my prior note, it seemed like nothing has changed. Still golden, vibrant acidity though this time it did seem sweeter than before. But still the acidity kept everything in check. I think I need 5 more years before I touch the next bottle!

Third Thursday tasting group (Vernon, CT): Another great bottle of this, and I'm kicking myself for not buying more when I could. A blast of petrol and smoky funk on the nose, but the palate is an array of very fresh orchard fruits, honey, floral notes, and crystalline minerality. There's moderate sweetness balanced by a spine of powerful acidity that keeps this incredibly fresh and precise, and remarkable length. Fantastic.

TTTG (Salil's): The nose gives a distinct new rubber tire note that doesn’t seem to show up on the palate. On entry there is a burst of bright lemon that carries into the finish where the initial charge from the fruit drops off and is replaced by less concentrated honey and orchard fruit flavors that linger on and on. The contrast from the nose to palate is terrific. For all of its depth this is incredibly light and lively.
Excellent – Drink or Hold

Liked but didn't love this. There's plenty of bright lime and green apple fruit with moderate sweetness that's kept in check by the powerful acidity, but it's a bit one-note, and feels a bit coarse on the back end.

Less developed color than previous bottle. Some firne / petrol on the nose, together with citrus (orange and clementine) and dried candies. Elegant and soft. The sharp acidity that characterizes the Zilliken wines is not present here, which is due to the vintage?

(from a bottle bought at the winery around three years ago) nose of pineapple, minerals, petrol and some apple notes; the gout de petrol picks up a bit more on the palate. The mouthfeel is lovely, light and balanced and not syrupy, though acidity was rather less than I would have expected from a Saar riesling, and minerality was a bit understated. Still a very lovely auslese that will hold well for a good while still, though I'm not confident about improvement.

Exactly, and I mean exactly, the same as my 6/20/12 note. This hasn't budged, is fat at first, then sleekens to a shimmering example of aged Riesling. This has another decade ahead of it, at least. I'm thankful for CT, in that I could easily see that note, open and aerate the bottle significantly ahead of serving, which helped its performance significantly. I strongly recommend a six hour slow ox, and every couple hours significantly shaking, to aerate the bottle. Was brilliant, and still unfolding after open an hour in glass. 92pts, 94pts personal preference.

Another tasty 2012 spatlese. Not quite as superb as a recent 2012 Schafer Frohlich but very good nonetheless. Golden delicious apples and pears on the palate. Moderate sweetness and good length. Feels like this would shine once it sheds the baby fat.

Light yellow hay in colour; nose of lemon rinds and green apple skins with a good dose of minerality to it. Has a palate of diluted pineapple juice with some salinity on the background along with some grapefruits; definitely am getting the mineral component as well; has a lemon candy aftertaste. Light-medium bodied with a somewhat short abrupt finish to it; the sweetness is not too overpowering for a spatlesse.

This is the sort of airy, elegant and hardly sweet seeming Spätlese which regrettably is a dying, if not dead, species. Light/medium bodied but beautifully harmonious with lime tinged white fruit, spice, petrol sprinkled minerals, mouth-watering acidity and slight RS all in perfect balance and aromas lingering long in the throat. Excellent.

This is classical Saar Riesling that has a distinct aroma and flavor of green apples and a finish that is like licking cold, wet steel. Riveting stuff.
