2013 Karlheinz Schneider Riesling Schlossböckelheim Vulkanstein

2013 Karlheinz Schneider Riesling Schlossböckelheim Vulkanstein. When life gives you lemons, you drink this. Lemon, grapefruit, green apple, fresh spring water and a touch of salinity. This is so focused it is like a laser beam. The acid…speechless. This wine is grown and made right around where I used to spend my weekends as a kid and some of my favorite vineyards like Kupferberg and Herrmannshoehle are literally right around the bend of the Nahe. I could say this is a poor man’s Doennhoff, but that would not give this its proper due. Lovely.

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.
