Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2013 Weingut Battenfeld-Spanier Eisbach Riesling. Sick wine especially for the price of admission. Lemon zest, honey and laser focused minerality. Maybe even a touch of salinity. As one would expect, plenty of acid in this and some real structure as well. At $20 this is a stupid good bottle of wine. Maybe the best value Riesling @grapeylyle has sold along with the Wagner Stempel a couple of years back.
I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
