Riesling wines can age quite well. With the right levels of sugar and acidity, Rieslings can age for much longer than most would think (wines of up to 100 years of age, good wines Read More...
mind you, are not uncommon; the townhall of Bremen, Germany stores wines, including Riesling-based wines, that date back to 1653!).

This Riesling is at a great point in its lifespan right now and should be optimum over the next 8-18 months. Trockenbeeren-Auslese (TBA) wines have the highest level of sugar in the Prädikatswein system utilized in German and Austrian wine classifications. This means that the grapes have been individually picked and are shrivelled with noble rot, often to the point of appearing like a raisin. This translates to a wine that's rich and full of flavor and depth.

The first thing that struck us is the color of this TBA. So dark! Dark caramel, medium-strength ice tea, medium-grade maple syrup in color, the nose alone is worth the price of admission on this bottling: aged honey comb, marzipan, vintage rum, a hint of diesel, plantain, ripe tropical fruits, spun sugar. The palate continues the show: viscous and rich, tastes of maderia, banana, stewed tree fruits, aged peach syrup, ripe apricot, kerosene and rhum agricole are awash in decent acidity, keeping everything uplifted uplifted and delicious, fresh and vigourous. This is a great opportunity to taste a quality aged Riesling at a fantastic price.

thickness and sweetness on the palate while managing – thanks to its sheer density and spine-tingling citricity? no, make that electricity! – to be not at all cloying, and indeed positively animated. Warm cinnamon stick, vanilla, jellied red fruits, dried concentration of apple and plum, a wealth of citrus ? there is such concentration, complexity, purity and sheer length one becomes light-headed thinking about the sacrilege of trying to do it justice in a wine journal."

Wine Spectator 96 Points: "Classic eiswein, exhibiting the sweet/tart profile and intense, concentrated flavors of apricot, preserved lemon, mineral and vanilla pastry. It's on the tart side now, but should settle down with time. Best from 2008 through 2035."

From the legendary producer whom many consider to be the Nahe's best, comes this Estate Riesling from the 2013 vintage. When we were offered this last small quantity by the importer, Read More...
we knew we had to jump on it, because, as you should be aware, the 'Estate Riesling' from a top-notch producer is often one of the best value propositions Germany has to offer. This one offers bittersweet herbal, citrus zest, and berry flavors in a surprisingly creamy yet refreshing medium. Almost needless to say about this cuvee, the balance of sweetness is impeccable and the residual sugar barely noticeable. A great effort from the legendary Helmut Dönnhoff.

Paul Fürst has for many years been one of Germany's greatest practitioners of Pinot Noir and his Klingenberger is the quietest, the most understated and elegant in his stable.

Read More...
The Furst Spätburgunder Klingenberger Pinot Noir has been cultivated on the hot red sandstone of Centgrafenberg and Schlossberg for centuries. Nestling between the woods of Spessart and Odenwald the river Main has formed a basin, creating an environment perfect for the Pinot vines. The mild climate promotes ripening of the grapes and the soil provides them with the structure the Fürsts' red wines are known for. Over the last few years there has been much investment in the quality of the vineyards. Natural cultivation, reduced yields, extensive canopy management, graduated picking of the grapes and careful vinification with long barrel aging time make sure the wines reach their full potential.

Item: #304570

This is an unusually rich, flavorful, yet totally dry, Pinot Gris (Grigio) from the Franken region of Germany. On the nose you find aromas of green melon, spiced pears and white peaches. Read More...
In the mouth this wine delivers rich, viscous stone fruit flavors balanced with citrus notes and good acidity. The finish is long with excellent minerality. While this crisp white has some similarities to the Pinot Grigios found in Italy, it is easy to tell that it comes from Germany.
The stunning Schloss Hallburg (schloss = castle) in Franken dates to 1284. It is bordered on the north-west by the Main River and to the east by a canal. The surrounding towns of Hallburg, Nordheim, and Sommerach form a triangular region around it flanked by water, thus creating an "island" of quality wine-making in the heart of the region. The castle was acquired by the von Schonborn family in 1806. The vineyards are farmed organically and biodynamically under the direction of Georg Hünnerkop, named Estate Manager of the Year in Germany by Gault -Millau in 2009. His style of winemaking features vigorous, refreshing whites without oak or "make-up." These are pure tasting wines from a great, ancient site in the bone-dry Franconian tradition.

Winemaker Reinhard Lowenstein makes atypical, intensely focused Rieslings. He has really honed into the fact that his sites are based on different kinds of slate that really add Read More...
intensity to his wines.

Löwenstein, who founded the winery in 1980, was carefully searching for the best locations (terroir) before starting his venture in Winningen, a small hamlet along the lower Mosel (south of Koblenz). He is an innovator whose wine styles differ from the Mosel tradition, an inspiration to many young wine-makers at the Mosel river.

Yields are kept low, harvest is late and the steep slopes of the slate stone reflect the days heat during the night. Moreover, the juice is allowed to stay with the skin for up to two days. Some Botrytis infected fruit is sometimes also added giving complexity to the wine. Rheinhard Löwenstein’s wine making philosophy is non interventionist. He intends to bring out the terroir. The wines are Organic.

Heymann Lowenstein produces Riesling from several very steep terraced sights in and around Winnigen. The great sights that Reinhard utilizes include: Uhlen, Rottgen, Vom Blauem Schifer, and the wine Schieferterrassen which is a blend of 10 to 20 selected sites, all 1st growths. These are exotic wines with power and precision.

What Peter Weygandt has to say:
Reinhard Lowenstein, whose family had been winegrowers for generations, was as a youth somewhat rebellious and intially he did not want to follow the family tradition. His questioning mind and views of the world, however, put him in good stead to be a winemaker. He has become one of the most famous and iconoclast winemakers in Germany. His wines are so sought after that he sells nearly 60% of his production to private customers in Germany, and the rest are highly allocated around the world.

His vineyards are located on the far eastern edge of the Mosel, above Winnigen, just a few miles from Koblenz, on some of the highest and steepest slopes of the Mosel. Here the soils are virtually all slate, and Reinhard has made a study, not only of expositions, but even more, each type (color) of slate. So there is Blauen Schiefer (blue slate), Roth Lay (red slate, Lay being another name for slate), prominently noted on the various cuvees. In fact, he is so well-known for these minute studies of soil and exposition that he has been given the name “terroir-ist” by the German press.

Due to the extreme low yields and old vines, these are not “light, pretty” wines, either. They are big, powerful Auslese level wines with little residual sugar and imposing structure. As one goes “up the ladder”, each wine is more and more concentrated and an even more perfect expression of its terroir.

These are German wines for people who would also love Grand Cru white Burgundy like Batard-Montrachet or Corton-Charlemagne. Indeed, Revue du Vin de France named Heymann –Lowenstein (Reinhard’s wife’s maiden name is Heymann), Foreign Winery of the Year last year, over Vega-Sicilia and three other nominees.

One could fairly describe Reinhard, both in fame and style, as the F.X. Pichler of the Mosel.

and followed by subsequent generations, the winery is now maintained by Dr. Manfred Prum. The 33 acres of estate vineyards on the steep, rocky slopes of the middle Mosel produce 13,000 cases annually, running the full spectrum of the Pradikat. These vineyards boast 70% original rootstock, and low-yielding old vines. The resulting wines are known for their full-flavored fruit, spiciness, and slow development, which greatly rewards patient cellaring.

With their signature style of vibrant, shimmering acidity, rich, deep fruit, and larger-than-life aromatics that nearly jump out of the glass, the wines of Joseph Leitz have Read More...
understandably – especially with the unstoppable litany of high scores bestowed on them by the press – become one of Terry’s most sought-after German estates. This modest, entry-level wine has always been one of the best values in German wine, and consequently one of Terry’s most popular. Although a Qba wine (the level of quality wine just below Prädikatswein), this wine actually comes from a single vineyard in the Rheingau region called Rüdesheimer Drachenstein (Drachenstein means “Dragonstone”) and is 100% estate fruit! Terry tells us that it is “bright and salty; has some of the flint and kirsch of the site but also wisteria and mint, all in a suave context…potentially the best Dragonstone in many years.”
