2012 Trittenheimer Apothekle Riesling AUSLESE     91 points

While remarkably lithe and delicate in style, this complex auslese is lusciously concentrated, with ripe peach and nectarine flavors balanced by hints of smoke, spice and musk. It’s zippy and bright,with tart tangerine acidity and a wave of minerality on the finish.  — A.I. (6/1/2014)

 

2012 Dhroner Hofberger Riesling AUSLESE    90 points                 

Smoke, spice and earth notes mark this deeply mineral auslese, adding depth and complexity to the sunny palate and peach and apricot flavors. A beautifully executed calibration of savory and sweet, it finishes with a twang of struck steel and lime.  — A.I.  (6/1/2014)

2012 Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Riesling KABINETT   90 points

Refreshing aromas of tangerine and lime are laced with petrol on this steely kabinett. Waves of ripe peach and nectarine flavor add delicate sweetness on the palate, accented by savory notes of dried herb and tea leaves. Lemon-lime acidity leads the long finish.  — A.I. (6/1/2014)

BOLLIG-LEHNERT PIESPORTER GOLDTROPFCHEN RIESLING SPATLESE 2012
BOTTLE SIZE:750ML
This almost clear colored Spatlese level Riesling from Mosel opens with a mild Mandarin orange bouquet with a hint of ginger. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, pretty sweet and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a ripe lemon-lime blend with notes of ginger and hints of white pepper. The finish remains slightly sweet and its flavors linger nicely after the wine is gone.

 

 

Generation Riesling

My VanCity

At the trade tasting after lunch, I am attracted by a line-up of 4 cute looking bottles with fantastic wine label designs at the Bollig-Lehnert station. The next thing I know, I am drinking yet another two Rieslings: The Flagfish Riesling and the Fire Dragon Riesling of classic characteriestics but crafted with Bollig uniqueness. While the Flagfish is seductively juicy and hints of honey-dew and pear, the Fire Dragon is crisp and refreshing. The bad news is; their wines are available out east only; the good news is – they’re seeking a wine agent in BC. I’ve told owner Jill Bollig who is tending the station to send me an email once she secures the agency, ‘cause I am going to grab a few bottles of those Flagfish and Fire Dragons!

The Mosel is the Germany’s most northerly Region with the most slate in its soils. it makes the most elegant Rieslings . we’ve been fans of Bollig Lehnert’s sweetly spicy style for years. Their racy 2013 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Spatlese might well make one of you too.

Bollig-Lehnert Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Spatlese

2012 BOLLIG-LEHNERT PIESPORTER GOLDTROPFCHEN RIESLING SPATLESE

A bit earthy on the nose, with dried apple driven aromas topped with pollen floral notes, a touch of green herb and a dusting of white pepper. Easy going and well balanced, if on the lighter side for Spatlese. There’s a nice core of sweet apple and pear fruit here topped with lime notes and a touch of mineral austerity along with the aromatic herb element from the nose, all driving the medium length and attractively complex finish. This has an almost astringent edge of austerity to it which I find attractive. It’s a bit simple, but nicely structured. 87pts

EDITORIAL REVIEWS FOR 2011

BOLLIG-LEHNERT RIESLING KABINETT TRITTENHEIMER APOTHEKE

 03/13/2013

A bit heavy and slightly herbal on the nose with plenty of apple and citrus pith topped with a hint of white pepper. Even with lovely acidity, this still opens a touch on the heavy side, showing off ripe apple and slightly fig-like flavors. There’s distinct minerality here adding interest, but the wine is slightly heavy, with building acidity adding lemon flavors and brightness to the moderately long finish. 86pts

Review date: August 13, 2012

Wine Review: This straw colored Kabinett finished in first place in our first blind flight of Rieslings at this level. It opens with a mild Anjou pear bouquet with a hint of barley. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and really nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a gentle mineral infused light lemon with a hint of green tea, Fuji apple, and grapefruit. The finish is on the dry side and friendly. The panel suggested pairing this really good Riesling with grilled red snapper served with butternut squash ravioli. It is a great deal at $18, but may be hard to find with only 220 cases made. Call your favorite retailer quickly before it disappears. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Goldtropfchen is one of the best-known individual vineyards (Einzellagen) in the Mosel region of Germany. It is located in the district (Grosslage) of Michelsberg, in, as the name implies, the town of Piesport. This vineyard consists of steep, slate slopes arranged in a dramatic amphitheater-like shape for ideal exposure. The excellent Rieslings are typically sun-warmed and ripe, with pronounced slate minerality and balancing acidity.

Review date: October 11, 2012

Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Auslese is Excellent and very classy. It starts off slow and barely has a bouquet. Perhaps you can swirl it to a hint of apple and wet stone. However on the palate, this wine is a knockout! It is light bodied, elegant, slightly sweet, refined and impressive. The flavor profile is a delicious mild ripe Anjou pear with hints of pineapple, ginger and ripe red apple. If you want to serve a Riesling to impress someone, this one would do the trick. The finish is slightly sweet and its flavors drift away nicely. This wine is a steal at $25 and would be a perfect complement to grilled Tilapia. Call Lee and beg for a bottle or two. Not much was made or imported. Enjoy – Ken

Sweet surprise: The Bollig-Lehnert Riesling Kabinett has enticing mineral, honey and floral aromas.

Spring is a great time for riesling. Fava beans, pea shoots, black cod and creamy goat cheeses are just some of the things we can look forward to in greater abundance during the coming months, and all of these foods are fantastic with this noble grape variety.

Once cast off as a super-sweet wine that came in oddly shaped and strangely colored bottles, riesling has become much more accepted in the past decade.

Ten years ago, I had to twist my friends’ arms to join me in a glass, while today some of those same people are ecstatic when I open a bottle.

Riesling is often fairly low in alcohol, with many not exceeding 10 percent. Not everyone sees this as a good thing, but in today’s wine world, where many wines exceed 14 percent, it is a breath of fresh air — especially in the warmer months.

High-acid yet fruity, the key to a riesling’s success is balance. Alcohol is part of this equation. Many rieslings have some residual sugar, but the acidity prevents them from seeming cloying on the palate. And more and more dry rieslings are coming our way, especially from Germany.

Today’s recommendations are all German. They are vibrant and superb right now, but they will age for several years if stored in a cool, dark place.

Bollig-Lehnert Riesling Kabinett, Trittenheimer Apotheke, 2009 (Mosel, Germany):While others in the Mosel get more attention, Stefan Bollig goes about his business making some of the region’s best bargains.

This is a sensational riesling with enticing mineral, honey and floral aromas, and bright green apple fruit and melon tones on the palate.

Wine Category: Riesling

Grape blend: 100% Riesling

Region: Mosel Saar Ruwer

State or country: Germany

Price: $18

Cases produced: 220

KWG Score: 91 (based on 1 review)

Ken’s Wine Rating: Very Good+ (91)

Review date: August 13, 2012

Wine Review: This straw colored Kabinett finished in first place in our first blind flight of Rieslings at this level. It opens with a mild Anjou pear bouquet with a hint of barley. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and really nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a gentle mineral infused light lemon with a hint of green tea, Fuji apple, and grapefruit. The finish is on the dry side and friendly. The panel suggested pairing this really good Riesling with grilled red snapper served with butternut squash ravioli. It is a great deal at $18, but may be hard to find with only 220 cases made. Call your favorite retailer quickly before it disappears. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Goldtropfchen is one of the best-known individual vineyards (Einzellagen) in the Mosel region of Germany. It is located in the district (Grosslage) of Michelsberg, in, as the name implies, the town of Piesport. This vineyard consists of steep, slate slopes arranged in a dramatic amphitheater-like shape for ideal exposure. The excellent Rieslings are typically sun-warmed and ripe, with pronounced slate minerality and balancing acidity.

2011 Bollig Lehnert Riesling “Dhroner Hofberger Auslese”

 

Winery: Bollig Lehnert

Vintage: 2011

Wine Name/Vineyard: ”Dhroner Hofberger Auslese”

Wine Category: Riesling

Grape blend: 100% Riesling

Region: Mosel Saar Ruwer

State or country: Germany

Price: $25

Cases produced: 56

KWG Score: 94 (based on 1 review)

Ken’s Wine Rating: Excellent (94)

Review date: October 11, 2012

Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Auslese is Excellent and very classy. It starts off slow and barely has a bouquet. Perhaps you can swirl it to a hint of apple and wet stone. However on the palate, this wine is a knockout! It is light bodied, elegant, slightly sweet, refined and impressive. The flavor profile is a delicious mild ripe Anjou pear with hints of pineapple, ginger and ripe red apple. If you want to serve a Riesling to impress someone, this one would do the trick. The finish is slightly sweet and its flavors drift away nicely. This wine is a steal at $25 and would be a perfect complement to grilled Tilapia. Call Lee and beg for a bottle or two. Not much was made or imported. Enjoy – Ken

Wine Review: This light yellow colored Riesling is terrific and a great value. It opens with mild tangerine and faint peach bouquet with a hint of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, silky, smooth and slightly sweet. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild apple with a hint of ripe Bartlett pear and a touch of apricot towards the very end. The finish is pleasantly sweet and refined. This wine would pair perfectly with an assorted cheese platter to finish off a romantic evening. Enjoy – Ken

Sweet surprise: The Bollig-Lehnert Riesling Kabinett has enticing mineral, honey and floral aromas.

Spring is a great time for riesling. Fava beans, pea shoots, black cod and creamy goat cheeses are just some of the things we can look forward to in greater abundance during the coming months, and all of these foods are fantastic with this noble grape variety.

Once cast off as a super-sweet wine that came in oddly shaped and strangely colored bottles, riesling has become much more accepted in the past decade.

Ten years ago, I had to twist my friends’ arms to join me in a glass, while today some of those same people are ecstatic when I open a bottle.

Riesling is often fairly low in alcohol, with many not exceeding 10 percent. Not everyone sees this as a good thing, but in today’s wine world, where many wines exceed 14 percent, it is a breath of fresh air — especially in the warmer months.

High-acid yet fruity, the key to a riesling’s success is balance. Alcohol is part of this equation. Many rieslings have some residual sugar, but the acidity prevents them from seeming cloying on the palate. And more and more dry rieslings are coming our way, especially from Germany.

Today’s recommendations are all German. They are vibrant and superb right now, but they will age for several years if stored in a cool, dark place.

Bollig-Lehnert Riesling Kabinett, Trittenheimer Apotheke, 2009 (Mosel, Germany):While others in the Mosel get more attention, Stefan Bollig goes about his business making some of the region’s best bargains.

This is a sensational riesling with enticing mineral, honey and floral aromas, and bright green apple fruit and melon tones on the palate.
