Schlossgut Diel dinner

Wine dinner at Cuisine Cuisine at the Mira in Hong Kong.

2004 Diel Dorscheimer Goldloch Riesling Sparkling Brut - notes of orange, lemon and minerals.  A little ripe on the palate and slightly bitter.

2011 Diel Dorscheimer Pittermännchen Riesling Kabinett - white flowers, very elegant, a little ripe tangerine.  Nice level of sweetness for food.

2011 Diel Dorscheimer Pittermännchen Riesling Spätlese - white flowers, very elegant, sweeter on the palate and fatter.

2008 Diel Dorscheimer Goldloch Riesling Großes Gewächs - nose of petrol, mineral, white pepper, white flowers.  Dry but slightly ripe on the palate.

2002 Diel Dorscheimer Goldloch Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel - marmalade, acetone, honey.  Lovely.

After dinner Victor Diel and I joined a few friends for more wine…

1990 d'Auvenay Meursault Les Narvaux - lots of heavy, intense toasty oak, flint, very ripe, with a hint of honey.  Nose was absolutely beautiful after about an hour.

2005 Dugat-Py Bourgogne "Cuvée Halinard" - minty, forest, exotic spices.

1971 Schloss Schönborn Hattenheimer Nußbrunnen Riesling Beerenauslese - orange marmalade, honey and acetone on the nose, pretty sweet on the palate with some acidity.  My contribution.
