TNs: Two Rieslings

Made for an excelleng pairing with Indian food!

  • 2015 Markus Molitor Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese (Golden Capsule) - Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer (30/7/2021)
    A little smoky on the nose, slightly more austere and felt heavier than the Willi Schaefer. Well-made but a little mechanical.
  • 2019 Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese #5 - Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer (30/7/2021)
    Wanted to check in on the hype behind the 2019 vintage and am rather disappointed that it is very much warranted - this had so much to say as a young wine. Very pale colour, some peaches and slight mint note at the start before the zesty acidity kicked in. Even in its infancy this had so much complexity and balance, clean fruit and purity. Love Willi Schaefer.
