Smells of dried strawberry, medium body, smooth in the mouth, not hot, more half dry for a port (so more towards Dow’s than Graham’s in terms of sweetness), in the mouth strawberry, in the aftertaste strawberry and acidity, good length (30 sec), very good reserve Ruby for a small price, more on the ‘dry’ side.

From a half bottle: golden colour, smells of dried apricot and butter brittle/ butter scotch, light body, sweet, but not overly so, in the mouth butter brittle/ butter scotch and a little bit of dried apricot, in the aftertaste butter brittle/ butter scotch and gooseberry, short finish (5 sec), good BA for every day. When I compare my earlier notes to this one I think it’s time to drink up my remaining bottles.

Pale golden colour, smells of flint stone and slightly of petrol, light to medium body, has a little bit of residual sugar, so is not completely dry, doesn’t have much acidity left, in the mouth a little bit of flint stone and a little bit of petrol, in the aftertaste acidity and apricot, medium length (10 sec), goes from a great nose over a middling taste to a poor finish, so the smell promises more that the wine actually delivers in the end, nevertheless it’s a good wine for the price when you think of how much similar Nierstein village wines from other producers cost.

Disgorged in June 2018 after 94 months on the lees, 4th batch with 1300 bottles (according to the back label).

Pale yellow colour, fine mousseux, smells of melon, green apple and a little bit nutty, medium body, dry, but not in a tart way, in the mouth melon, green apple and nutty, doesn’t have much acidity, in the aftertaste green apple, nutty and acidity, very long finish (30 sec).

Tasted blind I would not have guessed this to be a Riesling sparkling wine, it reminded me more of a NV champage. I had expected petrol notes after ten years. If you like your Riesling sparklers to taste more of Riesling, then you probably need to drink those with shorter time on the lees.

I would have scored it higher, if it had tasted more like Riesling. As it is, it’s not bad either, it’s just not what I expected or particularly like.

Very pale colour, has big bubbles of carbonic acid, smells of pear and in the background a little bit of melon, has a medium body given that this is a simple Vinho Verde, there is a little bit of residual sugar and a lot of crisp acidity, in the mouth pear and a little bit of melon, in the aftertaste pear and acidity, medium finish (10 sec), for a simple 2,99 € a bottle Vinho Verde this is quite good.
