Dr Loosen Dr L Riesling 2016 Product #32318 (In Stock)
Dr Loosen Dr L Riesling 2016 Dr Loosen Dr L Riesling 2016

Another fine vintage for one of Germany's best value - and most consistent - entry-level Rieslings.  As usual, rich and creamy with bright acidity underneath and plenty of apricot and fresh peach aromas and flavors.  Rich but not heavy and very easy to drink with a zesty, fresh, finish.

Pewsey Vale Riesling 2015 Product #30067 (In Stock)
Pewsey Vale Riesling 2015 Pewsey Vale Riesling 2015

FALL FESTIVAL MIX/MATCH 2CS $13.49/EA

Is this the greatest bone-dry Riesling in the world?  It's in the running, but it runs away with "best value" honors in the category and may hold the record for the most 90+ point ratings.  Intense lemon-lime, chalk, and floral herb aromas lead to a sizzling, dry, palate of yellow-green citrus, ginger, white pepper, peach, and more.  Finishes stony, long, and bone dry with a lingering touch of honeysuckle and lime zest.  Brilliant stuff.

"Very pure lemons and limes here that are concentrated, stony and fragrant. There's very pure fruit focus here, as this has the right balance of acid and texture. It's smooth, fleshy, dense, really deep and will drink early and live long."  James Suckling 95-96 points

"Ripe citrus fruits, fig, green tea and a hint of honey on the nose. Shows more roundness and heft than usual for this bottling, offering pliant orange and pear flavors and a subtle touch of honeysuckle. Finishes smooth, seamless and persistent, with a building mineral note and repeating orchard fruit character." Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

"Starting with pronounced green apples, citrus and white pepper, the 2015 Riesling leads to some notes of coriander seed and jasmine. Light, dry, lively and fresh on the palate, this Riesling is still a little tight, but possesses some spicy hints and great length."Wine Advocate 90 points

"Apple, lemon blossom and pear flavors are lively and open-textured, showing finesse and lingering beautifully on the finish. Drink now through 2025."Wine Spectator 90 points

Kuentz-Bas Riesling Alsace 2013 Product #31631 (In Stock)
Kuentz-Bas Riesling Alsace 2013 Kuentz-Bas Riesling Alsace 2013

From one of Alsace's leaders in organic farming (and certified biodynamic since 2008), this entry-level Riesling is full of fruit and pithy, cistrusy, zip. A fine sipper and great with seafood.

"Pale, bright straw-yellow color. Lemon, orange, pepper and pungent herbs on the nose. Bright and juicy in the mouth, with clean flavors of grapefruit pith, oregano and talc. Finishes firm-edged and citrussy, with the lemony acidity providing persistent finishing zip. This easygoing wine will go great with oysters and shellfish in general."  Vinous (d'Agata) 89 points

"Ripe Gala apple, star anise, verbena and apricot notes show in this lithe, elegant white, framed by bright acidity and a subtle accent of chalky mineral. Drink now through 2020."Wine Spectator 90 points

Liebfrauenstift Rheinhessen Dry Riesling 2013 Product #32317 (In Stock)
Liebfrauenstift Rheinhessen Dry Riesling 2013 Liebfrauenstift Rheinhessen Dry Riesling 2013

DRY!  Yes, it's German Riesling, but it's made the way Germans like their white wine today - which meand dry, crisp and mouthwatering.  This is loaded with peach, guava, and apricot fruit on the nose and plate with nice does of citrusy lime skin and mineral crushed stone.  Light in weight but loaded with intense flavor and a long, bone-dry, finish.  A great value, too.

Peter Lauer Riesling Barrel X Saar 2016 Product #32427 (In Stock)
Peter Lauer Riesling Barrel X Saar 2016 Peter Lauer Riesling Barrel X Saar 2016

The review below is for 2014.  The 2016 is equally outstanding; don't miss it! "Untamed 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 (for 2014 vintage)

St Nikolaus Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese 2015 Product #31913 (In Stock)
St Nikolaus Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese 2015 St Nikolaus Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese 2015

Founded in 1458, this is the oldest estate in Germany's Middle Mosel and here they are working with perhaps the Mosel's most famous vineyard:  Wehlener Sonnenuhr.  In 2015 the ripe Spatelese-level fruit explodes from the glass and on your palate with crisp autumn apple, juicy peach, and zesty lime fruit riding over intense crushed slate minerality.  With great drive and mouthwatering acids, this finishes in style leaving juicy apple and lime zest behind.  Yes, it's a little sweet.  Get over it.

Steininger Riesling Sekt 2014 Product #31798 (In Stock)
Steininger Riesling Sekt 2014 Steininger Riesling Sekt 2014

Steininger's sparkling wines are all about varietal purity, and here Riesling's floral, peal and lime character shines through.  Dry.

"The fragrant floral nature of Riesling shines through on the fresh nose. The palate also holds this lemony freshness, harnessed by small bubbles fizzing away on the lively, slender, dry palate. A streak of lemony acidity adds some extra brightness."Wine Enthusiast 88 points

Monchhof Riesling Spatlese Mosel Slate 2014 Product #31484 (In Stock)
Monchhof Riesling Spatlese Mosel Slate 2014 Monchhof Riesling Spatlese Mosel Slate 2014

Classic Mosel freshness and verve to go with the ripe fruit and luscious texture.

"Mosel Slate” is the nickname long prominent on the label of Eymael’s Treppchen Spätlese. Site-typical sassafras-laced lime and orange penetrate the nose and inform a palate sorbet-like in its alluring combination of lusciousness, polish and cooling refreshment. The finish reflects adept integration of sweetness and highly satisfying persistence.Wine Advocate 89 points

Tegernseerhof Riesling Steiner Pfaffenberg 2016 Product #32285 (In Stock)

Last vintage of this bone dry, very stylish, Riesling earned 94 points from Wine Enthusiast - this is better.  Big aromas and flavors of ripe yellow peach drenched in fresh lime juice with dry, dusty, slate minerality and a hint of fresh fruit blossoms.  Palate-coating and intense through the mid-palate and then stony, zesty, and very long through the mouthwatering finish. Should cost 2x this amount.

Pewsey Vale Riesling The Contours 2011 Product #32041 (In Stock)
Pewsey Vale Riesling The Contours 2011 Pewsey Vale Riesling The Contours 2011

If you enjoy the bone dry "regular" Pewsey Vale Riesling, step up to this late release bottling of the estate's best fruit.  Dry, driven, toasty.

"This release deserves some sort of award for consistency, year in and year out. The 2011 is light to medium in body and long, zesty and vibrant on the finish. Aromas and flavors of bergamot, honey (although the wine is completely dry) and toast are classic aged Eden Valley Riesling. Drink now–2030."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

"Up front and refreshing, offering a seamless mix of lime, pear and green apple flavors. This wine's details gain momentum on the finish, where smoke, lanolin, beeswax and chamomile accents add complexity and depth. Drink now through 2027."Wine Spectator 93 points

Selbach-Oster Riesling Bernkasteler Badstube Auslese 2013 Product #30192 (In Stock)
Selbach-Oster Riesling Bernkasteler Badstube Auslese 2013 Selbach-Oster Riesling Bernkasteler Badstube Auslese 2013

From a family-owned estate in the Mosel comes this delicious traditional off-dry Riesling. Quite a bit richer than a Kabinett-style Riesling, but still not quite in dessert wine territory, this single-vineyard Auslese smells of ripe peaches and orange blossoms, and tastes like candied apricots, minus the cloying texture. At once indulgent and refreshing, it's what German Riesling is all about!

Jj Prum Riesling Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spatlese 2015 Product #32294 (In Stock)

A top-quality single-vineyard Riesling from one of Germany's top producers. Complex and delicious!

"The 2015 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spätlese has a clear and discreet, but very deep and elegant fruit aroma that indicates a cool smokiness of crushed stones. This Riesling is very clear, piquant and elegant on the palate, with a gorgeously lush fruit and lingering salinity and mineral grip. This is an excellent, well-concentrated and expressive terroir Riesling from the other Sonnenuhr. Now the Wehlener needs all its charms, because otherwise the Zeltinger is Prüm's Spätlese king in 2015."Wine Advocate 93 points

Trimbach Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 2009 Product #31587 (In Stock)

A classic; mature, complex, bone dry.

"Citrus zest, fruit pit, huckleberry, and white pepper lend Trimbach’s 2009 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile an aromatic piquancy and tactile bite that – allied to an oily texture – might pull a bit too much in a bitter direction were it not for a satisfying and far from vintage-typical abundance of exuberantly juicy lime, tangerine, and kiwi. A high-toned aura of pit fruit distillate hovers over the entire performance. Crushed stone and alkaline mineral notes add depth to an invigoratingly and tenaciously lingering finish. This ought to perform admirably in the classic Frederic Emile role for at least 12-15 years."Wine Advocate 92 points

"A compact white that marries a firm backbone of acidity with focused flavors of apple and green pear, petrol and lanolin, honeycomb and ground spice. Delivers a fresh, zesty finish. Drink now through 2029."Wine Spectator 92 points

Dom Weinbach Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg SGN 2009 375ml Dom Weinbach Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg SGN 2009 375ml

Luxurious, intense, and nearly immortal.

"Bright, pale yellow-gold. Orange flower, strawberry and glazed kumquat on the enticing nose. Pure, palate-staining flavors of cinnamon apple, pear and tea leaf carry through to a very long, smooth aftertaste. The sugar/acid balance (136 g/l residual sugar and 7.25 g/l total acidity) is truly compelling. Great wine."International Wine Cellar 94 points
