2005 Weingut Robert Weil Riesling Spätlese trocken

Rheingau more

1/11/2014 - ajoviken wrote: 89 points

It's a good wine, but in its present stage it seems to be between its fresheness and developed tastes. Nose is great and tast eis fine with decent acidity and good fruit, but nothing special really. May have been slightly brought down as it did not pair at all with the shrimps I was having, but tried it several times before and after food. You live you learn.

It's a nice wine but lacks concentration. Good fruit and nice maturity.

Again just enjoying the wine. Not as amazed as the first bottle as I felt concentration was not on expected level. Tropical fruits, enough acidity left but should probably be drunk within a year or two. Still a nice mature Riesling of decent quality.

floral and greenish citrus, great creamy minerality. still young and very crisp but oh so elegant and an aftertaste that lasts a commercial break.

Nose: apple and pear, minerality, white peach, some spicyness, there is also a rubbery/petroleum hint. Taste: lemon and grape, tart apple, peach, unexpectedly high acidity, minerality, quite intense and long taste. A very good wine but in this specific bottle I lack a bit of fruitiness.

Petroleum, bergamott, peaches, minerals, peaches, ripe apples on the nose. Tastes like a sweet wine but dry; exotic fruits, peach ripe apples, decent acidity left but should be drunk within a few years. Seems to not develop to well in the glass.

Red Apples and berries. Nice minerality. Overripe pear. Taste; slight bitterness, round, complex long taste. Powerful and magnificent. A lot of sweetness from apple/fruit, very Pinot dominated as always not really tasting any Chardonnay but a slight creaminess in the aftertaste. Great acidity, long lived still but in a great drinking window.

Great qpr. Budget new world Bourgogne that I will look for in future. With decent minerality this would beat many originals even in premier cru. Send chalk to NZ.

Viognierdominated on the nose. Oak and vanilla, peach, hints of spiciness. Floral tones. Taste is pears, apple peach and a strong acidity arriving after a few seconds. The end is bitter and sweet with the floral hints coming also on the tounge. Had it about five years ago and expected more.

2008 Uva Mira Chardonnay Single Vineyard

Stellenbosch more

12/27/2012 - ajoviken wrote: 92 points

Lemon, citrus, passion fruit, peach, minerals, exotic fruits. On tongue; strong, good concentration, feels even more alcoholic than 13,5. Very nice slight bitterness, lemon, lime and exotic fruits. A bit lacking the elegance from a classy Bourgogne but indeed a very good wine. Could be kept for a few more years, still very good fruit but likely lost a bit of initial acidity.

Minerals, chalk. White peach, grape and a sweet tropical fruitiness. Taste is great, high acidity but remarkably developed fruit like canned pear, mango, grape and ripe peaches. Long taste and perfectly balanced. Could probably live a long life but is great already now.

Nose: Green/yellow apple, white peach and candy banana. Hints of rubber Taste: lemon, tropical fruits pineapple. Nice balanced bitterness in the aftertaste. Good complexity and long aftertaste but had perhaps expected slightly more concentration given the 14%. Lacking experience of gruner veltliner so don't really know about ageing potential but very drinkable at the present.

Pretty old school Rioja highly out of fashion in Sweden, but nevertheless pretty good. Balanced oak and good fruit and hints of spiciness. Positive surprise and a bargain for the German airport price of 12€.
