Weekend drinking thread ( 17th to 19th April 2020 )

Hello, discriminating wine lovers , can I take the opportunity to start this weekends thread ?

Here goes anyway, tonight’s TV dinner for one…

…my sommelier has more talent than the chef. The food was decent but the wine was great. It’s an Iphofner Kronsberg Silvaner Alte Reben 2015 from Wirsching. Spatlese Trocken in style ( as per the 2009 ).

For once, I’m not going to waffle as to its attributes. The best Silvaner I have ever drank will have to suffice. Cheap examples, both from Germany and Alsace. have a tendency for coarseness. This is the opposite, fine, elegant, intense, lots of depth, it’s simply superb.

Can’t wait to see what you’ll be trying too. Best wishes everyone.


Oh, sorry @Embee! I already started one literally minutes before… :grimacing:

Hope you don’t mind if I merge the two?
