2016 Domaine Weinbach Cuvée Sainte Catherine Riesling Schlossberg

Going big and by big, I mean MAGNUM, this Wine Wednesday on Alsatian Riesling. I mean, let’s be honest – a little Riesling out of a magnum is always fun. Lemon spritz, honeysuckle, slate minerality on the nose and palate. Tingling acidity with a long finish. Lovely!

1976 Hugel & Fils Riesling Vendanges Tardives

Kicking off the weekend with this nicely aged late harvest Riesling by one of my go-to Alsatian producers! Sweet apples, honeysuckle, honey, and apple tart on the nose. Honey and apple with a mix of tropical notes, ginger, and peach on the palate. Beautiful balance with the acidity. Pure minerality on the finish. LOVELY.

2017 Field Recordings Hock White

It’s hump day! Enjoying this Alsatian blend of noble grapes out of California! Fresh and dried apricots, pears, Meyer lemons, sweet lemon rind, and sweet hay notes on the nose. Apricots, peaches, prickly pear, and lemon on the palate. There’s just a HINT of sweetness to this that makes it a great pairing to spicy food like Indian, Thai, or Szechuan!

2016 Cave Spring Riesling Estate

Feeling pretty smug today with some Canadian Riesling on paw. I haven’t had much dry (off-dry) wine from Canada, but maybe “thanks” to global warming, their wines are getting better for the table. Apples, oranges, lemons, apricots, yellow flowers, and a hint of petrol on the nose. Similar on the palate with nice acidity. There’s a tingle on the tongue of sweetness but the acidity really clears it out. This is some solid, solid stuff and could use some aging. Grab a few bottles and hide them in your cellar!

Oh heyyy… Enjoying some much needed sun as it turns to spring! Honeysuckle, Meyer lemon, honeycomb, and a hint of orange on the nose. Lemons, browning pears, and apricots on the palate with minerality mid-palate. Bone dry with tongue-tickling acidity.
