    QOTD: Yes, Yes. Riesling has become only of my favorite wines. I am amazed and intrigued by their complexity and ability to age. I recently had a 1995 Carl Schmitt-Wagner Longuicher Maximiner Herrenberg Kabinett and it was exceptional! Decanted it!

    Coming in late here, but very much yes and yes. I started drinking German Rieslings 20+ years ago and love them. Among other things, I belong to the German Wine Society and also attended the German Wine Academy a few years ago. I think that Rieslings probably account for over 50% of the European wines in my cellar.

    QOTD – yes, yes

    Growing up, my parents pretty much only drank German Mosel Rieslings and Canadian icewines. I think the low alcohol level makes German Rieslings a great wine to drink with your family, even for smaller children. So when I went to college near the fingerlakes region, I was predisposed to like the fingerlakes rieslings (which I do). :)

    I’m looking through all of the older episodes on German wines after looking through a set of 3,000 pictures I took along the Rhine river outside of Frankfurt, Germany last summer. The wines there grow along the cliffs, at–what looks from afar–to be close to 90 degree angles, but are really between 30-60 degree angles to flat earth. I LOVE German wines, particularly Trokken wines, and it was an amazing experience to be on some of the vineyards there. It was also amazing to buy bottles of wine for the equivalent of $10-20 there that would cost three or four times that here in America.

    You should go to Germany to do an episode. Hit up Italy and Spain and Portugal too while you’re there…

  • Phredd3

    QOTD: Sure, and sure. I love 'em. Got several big ones aging in the cellar now. I tend to prefer the auslese, but drier is OK, too.

  • question

    YES times 2. I love dry, crisp riesling.

    GV- You are awesome. Thanks for hours of fun, entertainment, and education!

    Mott- Never fear, GV knows we want a shirt!

  • corkscrew

    Not tried any of these wines.. QOTD-yes..but not many. ww.winelx.com

  • John__J

    qotd: yes I've had QBA's, kabinett's, spatlese's, and a beerenauslese. Oddly enough I haven't had any auslese's. I also have yet to try a trockenbeerenauslese (much to my chagrin), or an eiswein, but with their sugar level requirements being lower than those of Canada's icewine's, I fail to see why I should take the chance on shelling out all those bones for a pricey German eiswein, when I can spend just as much on a Canadian one that's guaranteed a higher ripeness level.
