2005 Heinz Schmitt Saarburger Antoniusbrunnen Riesling Auslese

No formal notes, but I feel this is drinking better than it was on release in the US. The fruit has some good complexity. It's a softer, warmer Auslese, but the acidity is still good.

9/9/2014 - subtlet Likes this wine: NR

A Visit To Weingut Karl Erbes (Weingut Karl Erbes, Urzig, Germany): Complex aromas show in the glass, with scents of mint, candied lemon peel, and a hint of wood smoke all working well together. It's round on contact, with herbal flavors showing right away. Big apple flavors bloom and become full, and peaches show themselves on the mid palate. Herbal flavors hang onto the center of the palate adding complexity to the big fruit flavors. Full sweetness is present through the entire experience.

A Visit To Weingut Karl Erbes (Weingut Karl Erbes, Urzig, Germany): The nose is very complex with a fantastic core of plumes and pineapples and savory edges of sausage and diesel. It's clear on the palate with mineral notes at the core supported by herbal flavors later on. Honey shows full sweetness on the sides of the palate, and pineapple flavors bring sweetness to the center. Towards the finish, some apple flavors appear as well. The acidity is gentle here, but it lasts very long, along with apples and sweet pineapples.

A Visit To Weingut Karl Erbes (Weingut Karl Erbes, Urzig, Germany): Aromas of pineapples and ice are backed by a herbal edge. The wine shows a spritzy feel on the palate. When tasted, lemon drop sweetness leads the way. Oranges and pie apples appear on the mid palate. Some acidity works well towards drying things out on the finish while lemon drop flavors persist. Overall, I find it fresh and engaging.

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

9/9/2014 - subtlet Likes this wine: NR

A Visit To Weingut Karl Erbes (Weingut Karl Erbes, Urzig, Germany): The nose shows lots of fruit with aromas of pineapples and oranges backed by herbal scents that add a bit of complexity. The fruit shows quickly when tasted, with oranges, peaches, and pineapples showing bright character. Green apple acidity is slow to build on the mid palate, and it then lingers long along with pineapple. Full sweetness persists as well, and these components all contribute to a long and enjoyable finish.

A Visit To Jos. Christoffel Jr. In Urzig (Weingut Jos Christoffel Jr): There was lots of conversation again, so the notes here are very brief. Aromas of grapefruit, with zest, sage, and red soil show on the nose. The palate is quite complicated, with yellow apples, pears, and even cherry flavors showing. Some mineral and floral flavors appear as well.

A Visit To Jos. Christoffel Jr. In Urzig (Weingut Jos Christoffel Jr): The nose has engaging scents of of golden apples, dried hay, and dried peaches and apricots. When tasted, light flower flavors start things out followed by pears and yellow apples. Honey flavors sing on the mid palate, never becoming too heavy, and echoes of pineapple show themselves on the finish. The texture is soft, and the wine sits long and light on the palate. What a treat!

A Visit To Jos. Christoffel Jr. In Urzig (Weingut Jos Christoffel Jr): Dried flower scents rise from the glass along with limes and young peaches. Dried hay shows quickly on the palate, followed by lovely oranges, green apple flavors, and engaging light peaches. There’s a great transition from the fruit into some lime like acidity which cleans the palate slowly, allowing you to reflect on the fruit.

A Visit To Jos. Christoffel Jr. In Urzig (Weingut Jos Christoffel Jr): Tasted during lots of conversation, notes are limited. The nose is still a bit funky, with yeast notes from spontaneous fermentation overriding the fruit. I guess it needs some more time in bottle. The palate is in good shape however, reminding me of a fruit salad with acidity. Flavors of lemons, apples, bananas, and oranges all blend together nicely.

A Visit To Jos. Christoffel Jr. In Urzig (Weingut Jos Christoffel Jr): Savory notes of beef jerky and some petrol mix with aromas of very ripe melons. On the palate, ripe cantaloupe and balanced ripe peaches show. Some honey appears later along with a bit of spice. The acidity reminds me of red apples, and it lingers with cantaloupe flavors on the finish.

A Visit To Jos. Christoffel Jr. In Urzig (Weingut Jos Christoffel Jr): The nose is a little austere, wrapped up in dried flowers and dried peaches. Despite this nose, it’s spritely on the palate. Peaches and yellow flowers mingle with apple acidity. The fruit is full and sweet, and touch of honey sits lightly on the mid palate, linger long the finish. The acidity pushes out toward the finish as well, working nicely with the honey flavors. 91

A Visit To Jos. Christoffel Jr. In Urzig (Weingut Jos Christoffel Jr): Apple and floral scents mingle with those of fresh hay in the field in summer. Great delicate orange and sweet apple flavors lead off on the palate. Delicate green apple acidity dances while honey flavors provide richness later. This is soft, clean, and clear with many different layers to contemplate and enjoy. 93+

A Visit To Jos. Christoffel Jr. In Urzig (Weingut Jos Christoffel Jr): This engaging nose doesn’t show fruit scents, rather soil, dry grasses on the prairie, and a touch of perfume. The hay shows on the palate as well, along with light peaches and oranges. The fruit and savory qualities deliver good complexity. The acidity is on the lighter side, but even across the palate, and persistent. Good peaches show toward the finish. This is friendly as well, with good complexity.

The acidity is light, but still delivers and some peach flavors show later. This is friendly.

A Visit To Jos. Christoffel Jr. In Urzig (Weingut Jos Christoffel Jr):  The nose shows peaches with good depth backed by some nutmeg and rounded with a touch of cream that is surprising considering this is a dry wine. Light limes start things out and the palate has a fresh feel reminding me of sparkling water. Lemon and lime flavors sink into the sides of the palate, and a touch of orange flavor shows toward the finish. This is easy and approachable.

The Eyrie Vineyards Fiftieth Anniversary Tasting (Portland Art Museum): Deep aromas of complex honey show in the glass, backed by faint notes of salami that work as a great counterpoint to the dominant, sweeter scents. The bubbles go crazy on the palate on contact. They have fine texture, but there are lots of them! The honey suggested by the nose delivers accompanied by deep melon flavors, icy minerality, and some very ripe apples. A touch of dried fruit flavor suggests a little age on some component of the wine, but it adds some richness to the enjoyable experience as well.

The Eyrie Vineyards Fiftieth Anniversary Tasting (Portland Art Museum): The nose shows dark cherries and grapefruit along with a touch of fire smoke. Dark cherry flavors show quickly, with a faint edge of ash from the fire on the nose. Great red grapefruit flavors evolve on the mid palate, backed by a touch of chalky minerality. The cherries and grapefruit work very well together. The acidity is very nice, and the wine has a sense of fullness that runs throughout the experience.

The Eyrie Vineyards Fiftieth Anniversary Tasting (Portland Art Museum): Full aromas of cherries, pomegranate, and nutmeg flow from the glass. The texture is immediately soft and gentle on the palate. Full cherry flavors are complemented by deep yellow apples that bring their acidity along with them. Soft tannins have a chalky edge to them, and the acidity makes the mouth pucker a little bit toward the finish. Overall though, the wine has a gentle feeling to it that lingers long, and is well complemented by the impressive depth to the cherry flavors.

The Eyrie Vineyards Fiftieth Anniversary Tasting (Portland Art Museum): The nose here is a little austere, with aromas of apples and apple core in the forefront. Scents of plums and roses show behind the apples. When tasted, it starts out gently. Apple type acidity rises to become full across the palate, bring apple flavors along with it. Gentle cranberries and light cherry flavors work with the apples to add depth, and all three linger well into the finish. This shows a good sense of purity, and is thoroughly enjoyable. 91+

The Eyrie Vineyards Fiftieth Anniversary Tasting (Portland Art Museum): The nose here is on the darker side, showing scents of roast beef and cranberries as well as some roses and cherries. When tasted, intensity builds quickly on the palate with dark cherries and apples showing well. The acidity is crisp, feeling like limes, and the tannins show a touch of dust. On the finish some dark earth shows, working well with the fruit from the mid palate. 89+ now, and I look forward to tasting this after it's got some more age on it.
