1. Joh. Jos. Christoffel Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Mosel 2018

    Joh. Jos. Christoffel Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Mosel 2018

    The Christoffel family of Ürzig has been involved in wine production dating back to the 17th century. The Ürziger Würzgarten, or ‘spice garden,’ is so named because its iron rich slate is red, and produces notably spicy wines. This spiciness is combated by some residual sugar that gives this wine an amazing texture that is silky and sweet, yet with a sleek dry finish with incredible depth. Thai food anyone? Learn More
  2. Spreitzer Buntschieffer Riesling Reingau 2018

    Spreitzer Buntschieffer Riesling Reingau 2018

    From up the hill in Hallgarten, where the slatey soils and cooler nights give nutty, firm wines utterly unlike the riverfront charmers. Here we find classic green-apple and walnut aromas and a fleshy, smooth palate, a sort of Graacher Himmelreich echo, mutsu apples, scree and slate, the wine is yummy, gentle and suave. This does not have the laser like acidity of the steep-cliffed Mosel wines. Learn More

    Von Winning Riesling Extra Brut Sekt

    If you look at many of the Champagne houses in France, they may have a relationship to Germany… In fact Germans are the largest consumers of sparkling wine in the world. This is a stellar production from a German house that can do no wrong when it comes to their winemaking. A serious wine with it being an extra-brut; Riesling may never appear the same to you again. Tart citrus, nectarine, green apples and bone-dry. No sweetness here. Learn More

  5. Mac Forbes "RS8" Riesling Strathbogie Ranges 2018

    Mac Forbes "RS8" Riesling Strathbogie Ranges 2018

    From the wonderfully named Strathbogie Ranges comes this impossibly delicious Riesling. The Ranges are known for wines with high acidity – balanced here by the well-integrated residual sugar which also gives the wine some weight. Extra concentration comes from un-grafted vines planted in 1983, as well as native yeast and some lees ageing. Lots of lemon, lime, and peach aromas as well as a smoky, mineral texture. Complex, expressive, and extremely drinkable. Learn More

    Jager Riesling Ried Steinriegl Federspiel Wachau 2018

    Roman Jäger’s wines are exemplary, structured around a precise fruitiness and vivacity, consistency, and clarity. He wants to enhance the specific authentic terroir notes of his terraces in his wines and the Federspiel achieves this. The Steinriegl Riesling from the Wachau is characterized by tightness and minerality. We find this wine to be compact, steely crisp and exhilarating, bone-dry but so refreshing. Lime zest, herbs, and a dry, salty minerality. Learn More

The “Pfoeller” Riesling comes from a half hectare parcel that was planted in 1982 on fossil-rich limestone.
