RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". It is a way to easily distribute a list of headlines, update notices, and sometimes inventory changes to a wide number of people. Think of it as a one-stop shop for all the stuff you want to read online. For the consumer, an aggregator or reader, either web-based or installed on your computer, ties it all together.

To make use of this information, you have to download and install an RSS feed reader like SharpReader. Every so often, the aggregator checks the RSS feeds you selected. You log on to the aggregator and see the updates to your favorite sites, blogs and stores, all in one place. For more information on RSS, please visit:

1994 Schloss Saarstein - Serriger Schloss Saarsteiner Riesling Spatlese
Nice petrol nose and beautiful acid with no edges. I can imagine that the acid was more pronounced a few years earlier. Terrific pairing with a variety of foods.

2007 Bernhard Ott - Riesling Von Rotem Schotter
Quite dry, precise and satisfying. Excellent minerals and balance.

2007 Dr Randolf Kauer - Oberweseler Oelsberg Riesling Spatlese Trocken
Simply beautiful Mittelrhein dry wine. Superb minerals and a subtle and precise texture. Just a hint of sweetness. I am new to these dry Rieslings but love it - great with a wide variety of food and cheese. Enjoyed it at an open air summer concert.

2004 Donnhoff - Oberhauser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett
Greenish gold. A little bit of C02, a bit of petrol. More spatlese like sweetness and nice finish. Definitely hints of lemon, peach. Not a particularly long finish but quite satisfying nevertheless. Pretty good acid too.

2005 Herbert Messmer - Burrweiler Schawer Riesling Spatlese
Lovely wine with a medium length finish. A touch bit on the sweeter side and hint of future petrol nose is already in place. Nice smooth palate which was not too viscous. Quite enjoyable but perhaps better with age to take a bit of the sugar edge off.
