This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Sweet German rieslings

Tasting of sweet German Rieslings at Watson's Wine Cellar, hosted by Katharina Staab - the current German Wine Queen.

1992 Wegeler Oestricher Doosberg Riesling Auslese - grassy, sugar cane, ripe pineapple, and marzipan.  Lots of sweetness but also plenty of acidity on the palate.

1993 Diel Riesling Eiswein - very intense nose of pollen, plastic, honey, marmalade.  Viscous on the palate.

2012 Max Ferd. Richter Mülheimer Helenenkloster Riesling Eiswein - very elegant and floral, with white flowers, young dried tangerine peel, a little polyurethane, and still a little pungent on the nose.  Lots of sugar and more concentrated on the palate, with mandarin notes.

2011 Keller Cuvee Trockenbeerenauslese - polyurethane, marmalade, honey, dried apricot notes.  Sweet but has enough acidity here.

2008 Gunderloch Nackenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese - intense nose of honey, honeydew melon, a little floral, with plastic glue notes.  Very thick and viscous on the palate, almost chewy.  Really sweet and totally up my alley.

2007 Max Ferd. Richter Graacher Dompropst Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese - a little pungent plastic, a little more floral, with orange blossom.  Really ripe with lots of botrytis.
