2009 Zilliken (Forstmeister Geltz) Riesling Butterfly

7/3/2015 - indiscriminate palate wrote: 85 points

A bit off-dry, less sugar than a Kabinett. Good acidity, some chalkiness, very little fruit. Nice structure, but fairly unexciting.

#Rieslingfeier

Amazing acidity against the sweetness

Nose: honeyed tee, jasmine, honey suckle, allspice? / hint of smokiness
Palate: great acidity on the mid palate after the initial sweetness, pureness of honey, beautiful flowery tea notes

1994 Zilliken (Forstmeister Geltz) Saarburger Rausch Riesling Spätlese #5

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

6/23/2015 - sawira wrote: 93 points

AP#05. Library release. Pale yellow. Immediately forthcoming nose of verbena, lemongrass, talc, brown spices, gooseberries, red currants, rhubarb - all things bright, fresh and mildly sweet. Fresh, zippy, singing acidity leads the palate, followed by bright citrus, lemon Starburst, quince, almost a green tea sort of note, this is dryish, reserved, even austere, with a very long, bitter-noted finish that provides lift and levity. Nothing tropical here, this is a streamlined, understated, superbly delineated, subtly nuanced beauty. A Picasso of a wine - just the bare essential lines and elements, which allow the essentially rich aliveness to shine through. Brilliant! Easily another decade in hand, but not sure there's much upside (though I could be very wrong about that here).

The nose and palate are drenched with Granny Smith apples and slatey minerality with some lime and cinnamon. Great wine - true it's a little sweet for a kab, but there is excellent freshness and focus to provide balance.

2003 Zilliken (Forstmeister Geltz) Saarburger Rausch Riesling Spätlese

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

6/21/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 93 points

The nose was smoky with ripe peach, mango, hints of herbs and petrol. On the palate, it was rich and weighty yet finessed at the same time with ripe stone fruits, sweet herbs and young strawberry tones. It finished clean, fresh, yet long on palate with a coating of lemon curd and minerals

Less honeyed on the nose than previous bottles. Mineral with notes of lime fruit and lemon peel. On the palate fresh and precise, just slightly off dry with less sweetness and balance. A bit lean. 87-89

Another Killer Night with the Sydney Grapemates (Sydney, Australia): A petrol-dominated bouquet blew off to reveal a honeyed, melon nose with tropical fruit too; medium weight with racy acid, restrained fruit & a touch of flint; lengthy finish. Splendid stuff.

1997 Zilliken (Forstmeister Geltz) Saarburger Rausch Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

6/16/2015 - Seth Rosenberg wrote: 91 points

AP #6. Showed darker than I expected/hoped when poured. The nose is very ripe and quite mature - baked apples and pears, some sweet spices, and a hint of honey and caramel. The palate is similar - baked fruit flavors, maybe a bit of apricot, honey, caramel, and herbs. Maybe some acid, structure starting to emerge towards the end - we will see how it develops as I have some left. Nose - 5/6, Palate - 4.5-5/6, Finish - 4.5-5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1/2 = 15-16/20.

AP 6-98. Comes across more mature and much heavier than the regular Auslese. The botrytis is really intense here, and there's an overlay of honeyed and botrytis spice flavours dominating the ripe apricot and peach flavours. It's a big wine, but the sweetness is surprisingly moderate, and there's good acidity that becomes more noticeable with air. Enjoyed this a lot, but it did nothing to shift my preference of Zilliken's regular Auslese over the GK versions.

Good, expressive nose, not overly ripe or sweet. Mineral, fresh, not very sweet for Auslese on the palate. Bright acidity, even a bit too much towards the finish. Not as round and balanced as others in the high(er) Prädikat categories. 88-90

I struggle with Riesling that is not Trocken in style. I like the lime and slate notes but the the oily texture, weight and sweetness I struggle with. I can see how this would be a good match with spicy food but I prefer the dry versions for summer sipping. I'll keep trying every once in a while though.

Much better after 4 days: Beautiful nose with complex exotic fruit Aromas, lost its "fat" and was more precise and clean. So I think you should give it some time or air at the Moment. Great Saar Kabinett!

Private barbecue (@home): No real notes taken, will try it again tomorrow. Seams a bit closed today. Despite its high vintage typical acidity it seems a bit broad and fat and not feather like as i had expected it...

This is not a dessert style sweet wine. This is a very refreshing and extremely delicious wine with lots of acidity that perfectly balances with the sweetness. A huge eye opener for me with regards to sweet wine.

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 - Christoffer S 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.
