After having visited numerous German wine makers last year, and tasted many, many wines, a group of 41 wines, out of which 20 were from the Moselle, received scores of 95 or more.
A dry white also scored 95, giving it an almost instant cult status. And also a red wine, a Spätburgunder (pinot noir), scored 92+.
….. at the old Vinothek in Sydney, Australia, in its book wall bar (yes, the wall is composed entirely of real books).
Right after being able to tell everyone the good news about the new Riesling shipment. our shopping cart and ordering system goes down, and won’t be fixed until after the weekend.
But have a look at everything anyway.
Have a great weekend everyone!
The latest shipment of fantastic Rieslings from the Mosel has arrived at last ….. 11 quite different Rieslings all from the one fantastic, almost unique wine maker … and they will be going out at better than bottle shop prices. Ahh… there will be some fine drinking for a while now!
Ein Glas Wein auf die Suppe ist dem Arzt einen Taler entzogen
A glass of wine with the soup is a dollar taken from the doctor
Un pane, un fiasco e un anno - veloci se ne vanno.
A loaf of bread, a bottle of wine, and a year - they go quickly.
Nimm Du täglich Deinen Tropfen,
wird dein Herz stets freudig klopfen,
wirst im Alter - wie der Wein,
stets begehrt und heiter sein.
Take daily your drops,
always will your heart beat gladly,
become with age - like the wine
ever treasured and mellow.
(Old German Toast)
A bottle of good wine begs to be shared
(Old Chinese proverb)
In Australia, Vinothek is the source of outstanding and exceptional, prize winning German wines from mostly small, exclusive producers of both white and red wines.
