Rieslingviner (främst från från Pfalz) som provat den senaste året eller så i mitt försök att djupdyka ner i tysk riesling.

Dr. von Bassermann-Jordan (Pfalz)

(Deidesheimer) Kalkofen GG 2012

2017-01-08. 94/100

Colour: Deep yellow colour.
Nose: Expressive with peach, apples and minerality.
Palate: Highly aromatic riesling with deep concentrated fruit: peach, passionfruit, apple and sweet lemon. Clean rounded acid – ready to drink right now. Creamy and a bit fat. Quite much residual suger balances up everything. No disturbing botrytis. Long, long finish. But why 13.5 % alcohol?

 

Königsbacher Ölberg GG ”Kapelle” Riesling trocken 2012

2016-10-23. 92/100

Colour: Deep yellow
Nose: Tropical fruit, peach and apples. Flowers and vanilla. Massive.
Palate: Rich, smooth and concentrated. Dry with hints of sweet fruit and botrytis. Lots of fruit: peach/apples more than lemon/lime. Held back acid in great balance. I think the wine is ready to drink now.  2012 is the last vintage of Ölberg Kapelle riesling from B-J. Great wine. Fav. <3

 

Auf Der Mauer Riesling Trocken 2013

2016-10-08. 91/100

Tropical fruit, flowers and petroleum nose. Concentrated elegant but powerful palate with lots of R character, greenish lemon peel and lime fruit and a grape finish. Great.

 

 

Riesling Trocken 2015

2016-10-20. 86/100

Frisk och god. Inte överdrivet koncentrerad eller komplex smak. Bra balans och blommighet.
På intet sätt bättre (eller för den delen sämre) än andra Gutswein som jag provat från Pfalz. Däremot högre pris: SEK 179 på monopolet (€ 18.5). Inte helt prisvärt tycker jag.

 

Deidesheimer Paradiesgarten Riesling Kabinett 2015

2016-12-10. 87/100

Nose: Strange sligtly reductive; yeast, flowers and melon. Not completely fresh.
Palate: Sweet fruit and decent acid and complexity. Long finish with minerality and some petroleum. Still very young.

 

 

Dr. Bürklin-Wolf  (Pfalz)

Wachenheimer Riesling 2013

2016-04-18. 88/100

Friskt och fruktig med citrus och en aning petroleum. Torrt och riktigt bra till mat!

 

 

 

 

Wachenheimer Riesling 2014

2016-12-22. 87/100

High on mineral and acid. Decant and air to get the fruit.

 

 

Wachenheimer Riesling 2015

2017-02-03. 86/100

Bone dry, fresh and high mineral riesling. Not so generous and a bit closed fruit at the moment. Decant. No fav right now, but really good food wine.

Tasted side by side with Wittmann’s Vom Kalkstein 2015 – which is in the same acid and minerality game (and price level), but WVK is more concentrated and generous with loads of lemon/lime fruit.

Forster Qba Trocken 2013

2016-09-14. 87/100

High acid. Good concentration. Nice lemon/lime fruit. Still young

 

 

 

Von Buhl Riesling 2014

2016-04-22. 86/100.

Really good for it’s price.

 

 

Von Buhl Riesling 2015

2017-02-12. 85/100.

Bone dry. Young. Closed. Fresch lime/lemon green apple fruit. Full of minerality. Food wine. Good value.

 

Keller (Rheinhessen)

Keller Riesling Trocken 2015

2017-01-21. 89/100

A really good fresch riesling. Shy nose but the palate burst of apples, pear and lemon fruit, minerality and the acid is clean and precise. Some residual sugar does wonder. Almost 4 stars.

 

 

 

Keller Riesling Trocken 2014

2016-09-30. 90/100

Väldigt bra, koncentrerat och friskt.

 

 

 

Philipp Kuhn (Pfalz)

(Laumersheimer) Kirschgarten GG 2014

2016-12-10. 90/100

Nose: Apples, minerals, peach and melon
Palate: Powerful, full and fruity. Lots of apples and some sweet lemon and melon. Quite low acid. Still a bit closed right now and 31 € is maybe too much for this wine at this moment.

 

 

Grosskarlbacher Burgweg Riesling 2013

2016-10-12. 90/100

New style Pfalz riesling (for me). Low acid, quite full and fat. More mature apples than lemon/lime and more power than elegance. I like!

 

 

Grosskarlbacher Burgweg Riesling Trocken 2014

2017-01-27. 92/100

Stor doft med massor av persika, citrus och honung. Aningens petroleum. Smaken är alldeles underbar och fylld av persika, gula äpplen, söt citrus och honung. Lite fet känsla med massor med kraft och fyllighet. Rundad syra. Mineraler och en aning grapebitterhet mot slutet. Ganska mycket restsötma. Lång eftersmak. Gillar mycket. Fav. <3

 

Laumersheimer Riesling Alte Reben Trocken 2012

2016-11-05. 91/100

Great, dry, full, powerful, mature but fresch riesling with sweet fruit – apples, mandarin and lemon. Food wine. Fav. <3

 

 

Riesling Tradition Trocken 2015

2017-02-21. 89/100

Great value! Decant and air overnight. It transformes from a 3 star standard wine to 3,5 star phenomenon.

 

 

Rings (Pfalz)

(Ungsteiner) Weilberg GG Riesling 2014

2016-11-19. 89/100

Colour: Light yellow
Nose: Excellent deep, fruity with great flint character.
Palate: Full and powerful, a bit restrained fruit – apples snd peaches – and acid. Classic minerality. Weak finish – taste fade away quite quickly.

 

Ungsteiner Nussriegel Riesling 2015

2017-01-20. 90/100

Great wine! Clean, powerful, full and fruity with good minarality and awesome acid. Young but totally drinkable. Fav.

 

 

Kalkmergel Riesling 2015

2016-11-10. 85/100

Ganska fyllig och torr riesling. Till en början mycket källar/jäst-karaktär i doft och smak. Det luftade ut på några minuter. Sedan blommade vinet ut och det är relativt tillgängligt nu, trots att det fortfarande är ungt. Avrundade syror och rund frukt med massor av mogna äpplen och tendens till brödighet. Ganska stram smak med en fin mineralitet som balanserar upp frukten. Ambitiöst.

von Winning (Pfalz)

(Dedesheimer) Langenmorgen Riesling GG 2013

2017-01-29. 91+/100

Colour: Light yellow/lime.
Nose: Really deep fresch with lemon/lime, flowers, spices and honey.
Palate: Aromatic quite light and fresch. Ripe lemon/lime fruit, lemon curd and peach. Some oak but not too much. Elegant balanced medium bodied wine. Young acid. Long mineral finish.

Really good now but I’ll wait a year or so to open next bottle.

(Deidesheimer) Grainhübel Riesling GG 2014

2016-09-23. 86/100

Still closed and a bit oxidized. Fantastic nose bursting with fruit, but quite restrained palate. No obvious fav for me.

 

 

(Deidesheimer) Grainhübel Riesling 2011

2017-02-19. 90/100

Surprised! Last time I drank Grainhübel ’11 it was sharp and quite closed. No fav and I only got tree bottles. Now it is more generous and fruity on the palate with apples, peach and herbs. Nice rounded acid. Oak is present but does not dominate. Wich I got more…

 

 

 

(Deidesheimer) Paradiesgarten Riesling 2014

2016-09-24. 88/100

Trevlig och ganska tillgänglig riesling med en touch av fat men i övrigt typisk frisk citrus/lime-frukt med viss fruktsötma mot slutet. Dekanterad och ordentligt luftad smakade den bäst dag 2.

Lättare och mindre koncentrerad än Reiterpfad 14 men mer tillgänglig än Grainhübel 14. Helt OK!

 

(Ruppertsberger) Reiterpfad Riesling 2012

2016-08-20. 90/100

Really nice wine! Instant fav with great bouqet and rich concentrated fruit and great character.

 

 

 

 

(Ruppertsberger) Reiterpfad Riesling 2014

2016-09-07. 89/100

Round and full of fruit – apples more than lime/lemon. Acid in balance. Dry palate with a distinct almost sweet finish.

 

 

 

(Ruppertsberger) Reiterpfad Riesling 2015

2017-02-11. 89/100

Light yellow colour. Apples, peach, herbs and lemon on the nose. Quite concentrated taste with apple and peach fruit and lemon/lime freschness. There is some oak in the background, but not much and it give the wine roundness. Like it. 2015 is somewhat better than 2014, but it lacks the richness of the 2012 right now.

 

 

 

Win Win Riesling 2015

2016-12-21. 87/100

Väldigt angenäm och lättdrucken riesling. Den är inte så brutalt torr eller mineralig utan snäll och lättillgänglig. Bra kvalitet! Prisvärt!

 

 

 

Wittmann (Rheinhessen)

Westhofener Riesling Trocken 2015

2017-02-10. 88/100

Hårt, slutet, syrligt och ganska ordinärt till en början. Efter en natt med luft öppnar det upp och blir väldigt spännande: Medelstor doft med blommor, blöt flinta och citrus. Stor, frisk väldigt mineralig och fruktig smak full av sten, citrus och gröna äpplen. Framträdande utmanande riktigt bra syra är hela grejen med vinet. Kommer att bli mycket mer generöst med tiden. Nu 3.8 stjärnor men om två/tre år säkert 4.

 

Riesling Vom Kalkstein Trocken 2015

2017-02-04. 91/100

Great riesling. Full, concentrated, fresch, acidic and fruity wine after some airing. A lime/lemon bomb with honey, pear and peach. Still young but highly recommended. Really good value. Fav <3. Buy!
