- Peter Lauer Riesling Barrel X Saar 2014 Product #30459 (In Stock)
Work with us here. Forget that you think you don't like German Riesling and try this. Yes, there's sugar, but that's not what this wine about. Breathtaking.
"Made not exclusively from their own vineyards the 9% alcohol (plus 20 or 22 grams residual sugar) 2014 Alt Scheidt Riesling (or Barrel X in the US) is an untamed flavored Saar Riesling with a lovely slate aroma and a very sappy and piquant taste. It is lovely juicy and sweet, but also very elegant, and a nothing but lovely type of Kabinett, although Floran Lauer does not want to name it like this because predicates are used only for sweet wines."Wine Advocate 93 points
- Monchhof Riesling Spatlese Mosel Slate 2013 Product #28818 (In Stock)
Another terrific vintage for this old-school Mosel producer, Robert Eymael. As you'd expect from a wine called "Slate", this delivers loads of stone and mineral flavors over ripe pear and Fuji apple fruit. Definitely spatelese weight and richness here, but with vibrant, almost crunch, acidity and minerality on the long, savory, finish.
