Community Tasting Note

  • Paul S wrote: 92 points

    October 23, 2009 - WFA German Varietal Tasting (Suntec Convention Centre, Singapore): The first really good wine of the tasting, and I thought this was rather an outstanding Pinot Gris. Started off good, but just got stronger and stronger in the glass. Deep yellow colour. Rather sticky on the nose, with nice yellow fruit, crushed flowers, some tangerines and orange zest, apricots and funky earthy notes replete with chalky mineral. Very complex, especially when compared with the first few wines we had. Palate was a world away from the acidic thinness of those wines as well. This was rich, almost oily textured, with layers of honeyed flavours, some nectarines, some papaya and plenty of spice, all balanced out by nice acidity. Finish was similarly long and textured with pretty good length in its spicey tail. Very nice, and quite age worthy too. Would love to try this in 5 years' time.

    By the way, the Gault Millau lists the name of this estate as Weingut Solwey, and the owner as Wolf-Dietrich Solwey. Comes on Cellartracker as being two different estates, but is it?
