Community Tasting Note

  • guillermo- Likes this wine: 95 points

    September 1, 2021 - Rarely have I tasted a wine that all concerned were wowed by. This is one of them. “Buy more of this,” I was told by someone whose first love is Riesling.

    This wine is not about complexity. It is about purity. It’s linear, yes. But it is like drinking pureness. Acidity is very well balanced by fruit. No hard edges. No off notes. Everything as it should be.

    After the first glass, the rest served as accompaniment to a pasta dish in which goat cheese featured prominently. In that role, it did the job well. Not surprising, since goat cheese is a classic pairing. The dish also had asparagus which is notoriously hard to pair, so I won’t ditch any point for not standing up to it. Still very good.

    I have a few more bottles and I’m getting more if I can find them.

    Edit: I should have noted, I splash-decanted the wine about 2 hours before serving, poured it back into the bottle, recorked and put it back in the fridge until the time came.
