Now that we have managed a slightly drier January, the taste buds are in need of re-awakening.
After tasting our 125 wines at the annual portfolio tasting last month, I would very much like to propose the following selection (3 bottles of each) to help with the wake up process:
Bercher: 2014 Jechtinger Grauburgunder/Pinot Gris dry
Two-thirds stainless steel, one-third big oak casks. Volcanic soils. Savoury, a light popcorn note and a rounded rich peachy palate. Slightly nutty. Lots of interest there. (Tamlyn Currin – JancisRobinson.com)
Busch: 2014 Riesling Vom Roten Schiefer/Red Slate dry
Intense red fruit, spiciness, herbal notes in the smell. Full body and well balanced, good length.
Göttelmann: 2015 Chardonnay dry
The long contact with the yeast and the weekly stirring gives the wine its typical aroma of fresh buttered bread, and caramel. It is a very lively wine with a refreshing acidity.
Allendorf: 2015 Winkler Riesling dry
An aroma of fragrant apples, ripe peaches and fresh chervil can be detected from each newly poured glass. The wine has a lively character complemented with the spirit of a summer breeze. It is robust, yet not too intense and can be enjoyed with every new sip.
