ALEXANA 11 RL REVANA
$27.95
Quantity

The Revana Vineyard is located in the Dundee Hills appellation of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. This unique appellation is marked by distinct geographic elements that effectively insulate Read More...
this region from the dramatic weather variations experienced in other nearby growing areas. True to the appellation, Alexana's 80-acre property possesses an incredibly diverse and complex series of soils and exposures. Located between 360 and 640 feet above sea level, the site has eighteen soil types spread over a combination of rolling hills, steep slopes and some rugged terrain.

Stunning and bright, the Alexana 2011 Riesling is clean, crisp and austere - almost Alsatian-style Riesling. Abounding with green apple and loads of minerals, the texture is rich and expansive. Grapefruit, honeysuckle and a hint of petrol come together to create a complex wine with intense layers and brilliant acidity, perfect for pairing with spicy food.

styled sweet Rieslings. He has been on target with these wines since he first began making them at Chateau St. Jean 30 years ago. The auslese-styled 2007 Special Select Late Harvest Riesling Saralee’s Vineyard contains 21.7 grams of residual sugar as well as terrific acidity, and gorgeous aromas of lychee nuts, apricots, peaches, and apple butter. This sweet white should drink easily for another 5-6 years."

enhances many kinds of cuisine without trying to dominate them. Riesling is a wonderful wine with poultry and seafood, especially shellfish (Dungeness Crab and Dry Riesling are a match made in heaven). It also complements the exotic flavors of Asian food (Chinese, Thai, Indian, sushi), and is the “go-to” wine for vegetarian dishes."

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.

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.

Riesling were sourced from sustainably farmed 60 to 70-year-old vines from a steep, south facing vineyard. The Saar is a region that has benefited from global warming as the fruit is now able to ripen more fully thus balancing the minerality and crispness of Saar wines. This Riesling has a lovely nose of peaches and apricots. On the palate you find yellow plum, white peach and nectarine flavors leading to a concentrated grey slate minerality on the finish. The wine is both flavorful and refreshingly light on its feet. Perfect with snacks on a warm afternoon or serve with fish, seafood and chicken dishes. This would also be a great wine to serve with your Easter ham.

Elk Cove’s "Ultima" wines are their definition of dessert; opulence in a bottle. Having long ago established a “cult-like” status, Riesling remains the cornerstone of this new blend. Read More...
The Ultima is comprised each vintage of a selection of aromatic varietals consisting of a proprietary blend. While Riesling supplies the weight of this wine with fresh pear, apricot and honey notes the supplemental varietals adds beautiful delicate aromatics. Our process for crafting the “ice wine” style for this blend involves late picking the grapes and commercially freezing them before pressing followed by blending in tank before ferment. Very little botrytis is present.

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.

WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS: "The 2005 Riesling Jubilee – coming, as usual with this bottling, from the Schoenenbourg – offers sweet scents of honeysuckle, Read More...
orange blossom, rowan, lemon and tangerine. Luscious honeydew melon fruit enlivened by juicy, invigorating citrus and tinged with lemon zest, ginger, and chalky mineral traces informs a silken-textured palate, leading to a strikingly honeyed and bright, bitterly zesty and overtly stony finish. This is an excellent candidate for at least 9-12 further years of aging. (The 2001 Jubilee, incidentally, is no finer in overall quality, and now overtly fusil, chalky, peachy, and truffle-scented, with an oily-rich palate and full-throttle finish.)"
