Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
2015 Freie Weingärtner Wachau / Domäne Wachau Riesling Federspiel Terrassen is a solid wine for the money. It was $15 at Costco here in Austin and shows a pale color and has lemon, juicy nectarine, chalky mineral and faint hints of juniperberry on the palate. Terrific stuff from start to finish. The finish itself is bone dry and mighty persistent…just how I like it.
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.
