2014 Wohlmuth Gelber Muskateller Steinriegel

Südsteiermark more

6/16/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 89 points

Very difficult vintage in Styria, but what a great Muskateller! Very floral, mineral and despite being surprisingly full-bodied, it always has a racy mouthwatering acidity. Great summer wine, though maybe already too complex for an aperitif wine. - 89

2009 Château Clauzet

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend more

6/21/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 89 points

Best bottle so far. Delicious to drink with classy Medoc flavors of cherries, cassis, iron/blood, some vegetal tobacco notes and a gentle oak note. Easy-drinking in terms of tannins and structure, clean, soft and approachable. Lovely now if you like to drink fruit forward Bordeaux. Can hold a few years too. Great with lamb chops. - 89 points

2007 Wohlmuth Sauvignon Blanc Edelschuh Elite

Südsteiermark more

6/19/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 92 points

A great example of the ageability of Styrian Sauvignon Blanc. Not a hint of age to this wine though the fruit is less dominant and the minerality more pronounced than when it was young. Classy Sauvignon flavors of gooseberries and elderflowers, cat pee and some tropical fruit flavors too. It is not made in the style of a green, vegetal, borderline ripe NewZealand Sauvignon blanc, but is a full-bodied and much riper version. But it has great balancing acidity too and a wonderful clarity despite being aged in barrel. A great wine from one of the best vintages of the region in the past years. - 92 points

2010 Freie Weingärtner Wachau / Domäne Wachau Riesling Smaragd Singerriedel

more

6/17/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 90 points

Great stonefruit scent on the nose, very perfumy; still quite tart on the palate, lots of acidity, not as fruit-driven as the nose, but elegant, mineral and racy. Not a hint of Botrytis, very clean and pure. Has potential to improve if the acidity calms down a bit with bottle age. - 90+ points

2011 Buchegger Riesling Reserve Tiefenthal Kremstal

more

6/11/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 90 points

Fresh, racy, very floral, citrus flavors, mineral core and not a hint of cloying Botrytis. A great example of Buchegger's Riesling style and a lovely wine that's easy to drink. Still youthful but enjoayble now. - 90 points

Unfortunately another cork taint. Great spicy Petit Verdot fruit, chocolate and graphite, lush and well-balanced but hard to rate and fully enjoy with that cork taint.

2009 Alzinger Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Loibner Steinertal

Wachau more

5/28/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 91 points

A very ripe and rich style of Grüner Veltliner, really a big and powerful wine with enormous length, classy pepper notes, but the fruit is more tropical than usual for the variety, no botrytis and honey notes though which I encountered with many other 2009s, very clean and pure but very, very ripe. I usually like my GV a bit fresher, but there is no denying this is a superb wine with good ageing potential. - 91 ponts

2005 Tapanappa Cabernet-Shiraz Whalebone Vineyard

Wrattonbully Cabernet-Shiraz Blend, Red Blend more

5/20/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 91 points

A well-made complex and still youthful Cabernet-Shiraz blend with elegant dark blackberry fruit, Bordeaux style with menthol notes, well integrated quality oak, good acidity, soft tannins. Really lovely for drinking now. Btw: Great website from the producer where the terroir of the vineyard is explained in detail. Very interesting. - 91 points

2005 Bodegas Muga Rioja Reserva Selección Especial

Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo more

5/20/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 90 points

A good bottle of Rioja Reserva, but not a great one. More classy than the El Puntido from the same vintage, though it does show a bit of heat, a fine mix of red and black fruits, very nice oak touch, just a bit short and not very complex. Good now but should hold a few more years. -90 points

Great week-day Bordeaux with classy Bordeaux flavors of black cherries and cassis, slightly funky horse sweat notes and fine cedar and tar flavors, balanced acidity and tannins that have lost most but not all grip yet. Drinking well now. - 88 points

This wine did not get us excited at all, agressively acidic, some oak tannin and lots of cherry fruit with a bit of plum. Not very nice without food. Not my preferred style of wine. - 88 points

High quality wine, modern style, dark blackberry fruit, herbs and garrigue notes, spicy, elegant oak and silky tannins. The only thing that is bothering with this bottle is some unpleasant oxidation. Well-made wine, but its has nothing to do with classic Rioja. - 91 points

Lovely fresh wine with bright acidity, mineral notes and fresh cherry fruit. Well-balanced though a hint of oak still seems not very well integrated. Tasted blind almost everyone guessed this to be a Sangiovese. Drinking well now. Glas stopper. - 90 points

Sweet apple fruit, slightly creamy and with ripe acidity, but also mineral and light despite having rich fruit. A gentle oak treatment emphasizes the fruit. Easy to like wine, almost sexy but more complex than it seems at first. - 90 points

Great bottle of Blaufränkisch, the 2008 vintage currently drinks much better than the 2006. Dark blackberry fruit, fine acidity and soft tannins, no oak covering the subtleties of the wine, the chalky terroir adds a touch of lightness to a complex and elegant wine. Lovely food wine. - 90 points

Not as rich or complex as Kracher's Trockenbeerenauslesen, but this is a well-balanced sweet wine, with honey and orange peel notes and a fresh balancing acidity. Likely to improve with a bit of bottle age, but also delicious now. - 89 points

2008 Prager Riesling Smaragd Klaus

Wachau more

5/6/2015 - isbjoern wrote: 91 points

A big and powerful Riesling. Dark golden color - clearly some oxidation, complex one the palate with stonefruits, petrol flavors typical of aged Riesling, some botrytis influence with notes of oranges and honey, more so than usual with Prager wines, but then 2008 was a huge Botrytis year in the Wachau, no sweetness and great balancing acidity. A very golden and ripe style of Riesling, not usually my preffered style but this is really excellent. - 91 points
