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.

Rieslings and La Turque

Dinner at Woo Cheong Tea House.

2009 Keller Westhofener Kirchspiel Riesling Großes Gewächs - flinty, polyurethane, mineral. A little ripeness here and big on the palate, grippy and almost with a little bitter finish.

2001 Guigal La Turque - served about 30 minutes after decanting. A little dusty on the nose, with notes of leather. Not bad, with some fragrance and sweet fruit on the nose. Acidity was relatively high on the palate. Not nearly the beautiful La Turque I was hoping for.

1990 von Schubert Maximin Grünhäuser Herrenberg Riesling Kabinett - completely oxidized on the nose with Chinese licorice, and lots of white flowers. On the palate this was relatively dry and just barely off-dry, and very rounded.

Full post on dinner is here.
