Sleeping Beauty Middle Rhine

31 October 2020

Boppard Hamm: vineyards on the largest loop of the Rhine

The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge. You, who so well know the nature of my soul, will not suppose, however, that I gave utterance to a threat. At length I would be avenged; this was a point definitively settled — but the very definitiveness with which it was resolved precluded the idea of risk.

I must not only punish but punish with impunity. A wrong is unredressed when retribution overtakes its redresser. It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong. It must be understood that neither by word nor deed had I given Fortunato cause to doubt my good will. I continued, as was my wont, to smile in his face, and he did not perceive that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation.

Lemon yellow. Apple scent still marked by fermentation aromas. On the palate green-herbal, mineral and with medicinal notes. Repulsive phenolic aromas. Decent length. Probably out of shape due to the late filling, close to the time of our tasting. We eagerly await the post-tasting, for which we will now take a little time. At the moment we see the (defensive and conservative) evaluation of the wine only as a thumb-point.

Clear, brilliant lemon yellow. Youthful bouquet with tropical fruits. Currently requires a lot of time in the open bottle to fully develop its aroma. The alcohol is perfectly integrated and gives the wine a pleasant fullness, over whose foundation an impressive harmony of all taste parameters rises. Obviously, this is a true long-distance runner, who was in danger of being underestimated in our hidden tasting. In its style no classical Mittelrhein Riesling of traditional coinage, but a genuine monument which we trust with some years bottle ripeness even a higher evaluation. Lasting length.

Jörg Lanius' estate Riesling needs a good day in the fresh air to get rid of his “baby bacon”. In the glass grey lemon yellow. In the nose at the beginning still very closed, with discreet fruitiness. On the tongue quite harmonious, with a fine mineral slate note. At first it looks quite neutral, but it opens on the second day and then reveals a rather concise green and herbaceous spice. Good length.

Light straw yellow. Currently still requires a lot of air. At first it looks completely distorted, but after a treatment in the Ovarius decanter it looks like it has been transformed. A wine that does not live from its primary aroma and a rare acidity in the vintage 2018, but convinces with substance. Here, however, full ripeness was not exhausted to the very end. This benefits the wine. Green herbal aromas and a fine acidity run through the creamy fullness of the fruit and ensure revival. The phenolic component will probably not be everyone's cup of tea – but it doesn't have to be. Very good length.

Tasted on 3 August 2019 by Werner Elflein and Ioulia Elflein under four eyes

On the first day, the Großes Gewächs "Am Lauerbaum" showed pronounced reduction, so that we had to suspend the evaluation for the time being. Overall, however, the wine was less affected than its counterpart from the Oberweseler Oelsberg. After two days under observation, the reduction has decreased to such an extent that we were able to get an idea of the wine's substance. Lemon yellow colour. In the nose at the moment with only discreet fruitiness. More broadly based than the straighter, more focused Oelsberg. Clear spontaneous aromas and fine wood barrel notes. Traditional, puristic style. Creamy fruit density, good balance and mineral depth. Light phenolic bitterness. Very good length. Unmistakably good material. A rough diamond that absolutely needs a few more years of ripening.

Full lemon yellow. Discreetly planty scent of peach pit and stone fruit. Full-bodied, dry Riesling that continues to be very compact, but has shed its youthful reductiveness. What remains is a high-quality phenolic, no longer bitter at all, which confirms our earlier view of the wine. Thanks to its thoroughly piquant acidity, which is perfectly embedded in the substance, the Große Gewächs from the Oelsberg now seems much more polished than it did two years ago. Excellent length. Still far from the end of a more than hopeful development. Not a soloist. Ideal food companion.

Even after two days of aeration, the Oberweseler Oelsberg Großes Gewächs still showed a noticeable reduction note, but finally allowed a closer examination. Lemon yellow. In the nose, overlaid by spontaneous fermentation aromas, hints of stone fruit, especially peach stone. Traditional, puristic style. Vertical, with deep and multi-layered minerality and excellent depth. Lighter than the alcohol content suggests. Discreet phenolic bitter note. Very good length. Requires a few more years of maturation.

Christos Christian Theodoropoulos' Riesling seems to pull out almost all the stops in order to avoid evaluation. Only the lemon-yellow colour of the wine is unambiguous. But already at the bouquet it seems as if during the 72 hours in which we observe its development, it will take on almost all possible states of taste. From citrus aromas to nutty notes and liquorice, everything seems to be there, so we cannot find a descriptive text that does any justice to this wine. In the mouth it presents itself to us as a typical cool climate Riesling. A fine acidity, substance and length are recognizable. We therefore regard the adjoining evaluation only as a rough thumb bearing.

Full lemon yellow. On the first day, aromas of rhubarb and wild strawberry dominate the bouquet. Only after 24 hours these are largely replaced by grapefruit notes. On the tongue the grapefruit shows up again, which brings a pleasant bitterness with it. A fine sweetness in combination with the elegant acidity on the palate provides a certain tension.

Lemon yellow. Distinctive, green and herbaceous scent with fine citrus aromas. Harmonises with time so that the herbs take a back seat and the fruitiness gains in importance. As in the nose, a similar development takes place in the mouth (accelerated by the use of the Ovarius decanter). Here, too, the initially green vegetable aromas give way to a delicate creamy fruit fullness. The soft acidity of the vintage is well compensated by the minerality. The taste is noticeably semi-dry with only a subtle hint of sweetness. Good length.

Greenish white gold. In the nose aromas of citrus and tobacco. On the tongue spicy and herbaceous. Mineralic foundation. With pull on the palate, but also slight bitterness. Currently strongly marked by carbonic acid and overall not yet conclusive. Needs time. Whether he will have the facilities one day to follow the excellent 2017, I currently can not estimate.

Weakly glowing lemon yellow. At first it seems as if the Domkaule resemble the Rüdenet very strongly this year, but after a few hours of air there are finally serious differences. Overall, the Domkaule appears to be somewhat weaker than the Rüdenet, the fruit is acidic, and also the very present carbonic acid does not yet find any binding. Good length.

From old vines in the Obernhofer Goetheberg, planted in 1927. Lemon yellow. In the nose monolithic and dense. A profound secondary aroma with a dominant ethereal spice that tolerates hardly any fruit next to it. Enormously expressive, without relying on volume. Individual in style, but completely coherent in itself. Only after two days of aeration do fine citrus notes appear. Impressive length. A great character actor among the dry Mittelrhein Rieslings.

The wine currently needs about 48 hours in the air to get rid of the annoying reduction notes at least to the extent that a look into the future is possible. Lemon yellow in colour, the bouquet is much more open than at the beginning with citrus aromas and a fresh, ethereal component that is most reminiscent of mint. On the tongue, besides the fruit, we also perceive the dense and firm substance of a dry Auslese with a sufficient acidity for the vintage and green herbaceous hints. Good length and persistence.

Light greyish yellow. Initially completely closed nose and also on the palate supposedly without a clear definition. But after a longer air supply the incomprehensible happens: The dry Riesling from the Bopparder Hamm Ohlenberg comes to life and suddenly shows clear contours and a very typical aromatics with ripe, tropical-sounding fruit. The wine is light and delicate on the palate. A picture book Kabinett. Serious and delicate, vinified “without tinsel”. Good length.

Tasted on 1 August 2019 by Werner Elflein

The colour spectrum ranges from medium lemon yellow to light straw yellow. Although the class of the wine can already be guessed on the first day, it only shows its full potential after 24 hours. This does not mean that everything can be discovered with just one sip. Because this chameleon plays with the taster “hare and hedgehog”, new facets open up again and again. Sometimes it's the floral components that push themselves into the foreground and evoke memories of white flowers, shortly afterwards a green and herbaceous note demands attention. Then again it is the expansive, tropical fruit that lines the mouth and seems to tolerate nothing else next to it, until a very fine, harmonious acid dares to come out of its hiding place and once again shuffles all the cards anew. No question about it, Florian Weingart's dry Spätlese “Am Weißen Wacke” is a masterpiece that, in my opinion, is one of the (few) really great dry Rieslings of the vintage 2018 in Germany.

Straw yellow with golden accents. At first in the nose still with a lot of carbonic acid, yellow fleshy aromas and a rather broad base. With a few hours of air the picture changes permanently. The nose becomes much more subtle and complex, even more focused. In the mouth it has a creamy fruitiness and an excellent balance between harmonious acidity and fine sweetness. Over time it develops into one of the most beautiful Rieslings of the vintage, probably also beyond the Mittelrhein region. Very long. Requires time.

Harvested in the night of January 21, 2019. Pure white gold. In the nose honey and a clearly focused grapefruit aroma. Mature acidity, excellently integrated in creamy fruit fullness and balanced with the sweetness. Outstanding length. In spite of the late harvest typical for ice wine and hardly recognizable Botrytis.

Straw yellow. Spicy and planty bouquet with subtle aromas of ripe yellow fruits and melon. In the mouth with very good presence and creamy fruitiness. Off-dry taste with a clear but excellently integrated sweetness. Harmonious and with some air without the initial bitterness. More reminiscent of a Chardonnay than a Pinot Blanc. Excellent length.

Light lemon yellow. Spontaneously spicy fragrance with hints of Swiss herbal sugar. The fruit is rather neutral, but the wine is full-bodied and well-balanced with good length, which shows the potential of this grape variety, which is mainly used as a table grape, for viticulture.

Bright yellow-green. Complex, not easy to grasp bouquet, dominated by barrique perfume and tropical fruits. Creamy on the palate and clearly recognizable as a child of the 2018 vintage due to its acidity structure. Shows a fine spiciness and very good length. May polarize, but is at the beginning of a hopeful development.

Straw yellow. The nose, with its typical Traminer aroma and the scent of rose blossom and lychee, suggests a monovarietal wine.

Bright, transparent garnet red. Individual scent, which reminds of red berries and potato chips. On the tongue with cool and sweet fruit, silky velvety tannins and a distinctive acid backbone. Ordinary length. In the current stage of development, the Ovarius decanter is urgently needed.

Bright purple garnet. Very unconventional Pinot Noir, which shows pronounced apple aromas in the nose and would therefore be a perfect candidate for a black glass tasting. On the tongue and palate, however, it is completely different: delicate roast flavours, red berry aromas, sweet fruit, but also with a slightly acidic component. Good length.

We often have doubts as to whether our methodical approach of observing wines over several days for a well-founded evaluation does not overshoot the mark a little. In most cases, our four-eyes-review does not bring any new insights. But there are wines that are worth waiting for. The Spätburgunder from the Lithos winery is such a case. Although already tasted on the first day in numerous variants (without aeration, with aeration, in the Ovarius decanter), it only reveals itself to us after more than 24 hours in the open bottle. The apple aromas perceptible on the previous day now clearly recede, a soft berry note now dominates the nose and continues on the palate. All in all, the wine now appears much more coherent. We reward this development with an accordingly clear adjustment of our score.

Brilliant full straw yellow. Fine tertiary aromas, a bouquet of fruit aromas, superimposed with the scent of roasted coffee bean. Only on the tongue pineapple, peach and a hint of passion fruit appear in an opulent, juicy and mouth filling form. At 8.5 % alcohol rather medium- than light-bodied with restrained sweetness and harmoniously integrated acidity. Excellent length.
