Albert Boxler Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg E - 2012

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Riesling (100%)

Nose: Wonderfully aromatic, with citrus, herbs and grapefruit, lively and mineral.

Palate: Incredible acidity on the palate which shows citrus, grapefruit and complex mineral notes. Bone dry, linear and laser-sharp.

Notes: The family’s holdings are centered around the ancient village of Niedermorschwihr in the Haut-Rhin, dominated by the imposing granite hillside Grand Cru, Sommerberg. The Sommerberg hillside terminates in Jean’s driveway, making it easy to basically live in the vineyards, ensuring exceptionally healthy fruit year after year. After harvest, the wines are vinified and aged in old foudres (A generic French term for a large wooden vat between 20 and 120 hectoliters) in a small cellar underneath the family home until bottling. The E stands for Egbert which is the upper part of this Grand Cru vineyard.

Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg E
Domaine Albert Mann Riesling Schlossberg Grand Cru (1500ml) - 2012

Unit Volume: 1500ml

Cultivars:
Riesling (100%)

Nose: Elegant and delicately on the nose. Fine flavors of a green apple, citrus and peach mix with notes of fresh ginger, coriander and saffron.

Palate: It offers a precise minerality and acid which seems multilayered and complex on the palate. Salty notes reminding of mussels and oyster shells cover the tongue and let it seem very Burgundian.

Notes: This well-regarded Alsace Domaine is run by two brothers, Maurice and Jacky Barthelme, in the village of Wettolsheim, near Colmar. Maurice, who took over the winery in 1984, is married to the daughter of the late Albert Mann who gave his name to the Domaine. The label destined for the Grands Crus puts forward the predominance of the soil, its richness and its beauty. It is this soil which is the legacy of the work and the care of several generations of passionate persons. A passion expressed by the red colour which thus keeps the memory of the old labels. The four squares express the diversity of the parcels of land, disseminated and however subtly intertwined, which are the particularity of the Domaine.

Riesling Schlossberg Grand Cru (1500ml)
Domaine Marcel Deiss Schoenenbourg Grand Cru - 2009

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Riesling
Gewürztraminer
Pinot Gris

Nose: Notes of pear and sweet pineapple on the nose, but with that ever present minerality in the background.

Palate: A very complex palate, with layers of honey, marmalade, lemons and mandarins, with fine acidity to balance the sweetness. This is a stunning wine from Marcel Deiss and one to really savor. As long as the Great Wall of China, impassive as the enigmatic face of Buddha!

Notes: Schoenenbourg, which became famous since the Middle Ages, is the flagship of the vineyards at Riquewihr. The greatest wines of this commune are born on this Terroir which help it to gain the universal recognition. This Terroir is distinguished by its topography (southern exposure, at the bottom of the valley, steepness) and its special geology: iridescent marls mixed slightly with Keuper gypsum and covered by the spreading of Vosges sandstone. The combination of a light, non-sticky soil and a subsoil of clay is quite rich in fertilizers and offers a good water retention, which probably explains why the character of the special wines – Schoenenbourg is dominant by Terroir other than by cépages. Schoenenbourg is one most the most veritable Grand Vin from the Alsace Terroir. This white is drawn from a 50 year old vineyard on the famous Schoenenbourg hill, the plot itself located above Riquewihr next to an old sulphur mine. Long pressing of the whole bunches. Fermentation with indigenous yeast takes place in foudre. The wine is aged on its lees for one year in the cellar. Bottling with light filtration.

Schoenenbourg Grand Cru
Domaine Weinbach Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg (1500ml) - 2012

Unit Volume: 1500ml

Cultivars:
Riesling (100%)

Nose: Smells like pineapples, cedar and elder flowers.

Palate: Palate has a fruity acidity, mild eucalyptus and a bit of smoke. Very stylish and persistent!

Notes: The Schlossberg hill is one of the world's most authoritative Riesling vineyards. It rises north of Kaysersberg and Kientzheim and sits at an altitude of 230-350m. The quality of Schlossberg's granite rich soils was well known as early as the 15th century and it was the first vineyard in Alsace to receive the status of Grand Cru, in 1975. This wine is cropped from the highest vines that the Faller family own in the Schlossberg. Here the soils are shallow, rocky and mineral rich, typically yielding a tightly wound, citric wine.

Domaine Weinbach Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg Cuvée Sainte Catherine (1500ml) - 2011

Unit Volume: 1500ml

Cultivars:
Riesling (100%)

Nose: Slightly high-toned aromas of crystallized lemon peel, tangerine, mirabelle, honey and wild herbs, plus hints of toasty lees and brown spices.

Palate: Medium-bodied wine with a refreshing acidity and full-bodied texture. An intense mouth feel that leads to a long finish.

Notes: From 60 year old vines in the middle of the Schlossberg slope where the exposure and granitic, mineral-rich soils make for a Riesling 'Eden'.

Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg Cuvée Sainte Catherine (1500ml)
Domaine Weinbach Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg Sélection de Grains Nobles (375ml) - 2006

Unit Volume: 375ml

Cultivars:
Riesling (100%)

Nose: The wine offers live-wire acidity and subtle flavors of apricot anise and papaya with a touch of smoke.

Palate: A juicy elegant wine with a lingering nut-tinged finish.

Notes: Domaine Weinbach is located just outside the castle-crowned town of Kaysersberg, the birthplace of 1952 Nobel Peace Prize winner Albert Schweitzer. The Domaine Weinbach is a former monastery built in 1612 by capucines monks, who made wine already in the Clos. During the French Revolution, the monastery was seized and sold as a national property. In 1898, it was acquired by the Faller brothers. The Fallers believe in minimal intervention in the winemaking process. The Sélections de Grains Nobles are obtained thanks to picking out the berries suffering from noble rot. They are real nectars, dense and balanced.

Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg Sélection de Grains Nobles (375ml)
Domaine Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Brand Sélection de Grains Nobles - 2006

Unit Volume: 375ml

Cultivars:
Riesling (100%)

Nose: Tangy tropical fruits, fresh apricot and a whiff of celery on the captivating nose.

Palate: Glyceral, chewy and wonderfully thick, with great tactile intensity to the flavors of fruits, spices, flowers, marzipan and honey; it's hard to scrape this off your palate. A superb expression of roasted botrytis, finishing with saline soil tones and great palate-staining sweetness.

Notes: The properties of Zenon Humbrecht and Emile Zind merged in 1959 to form Zind-Humbrecht. This is the first Riesling SGN Olivier Humbrecht has made from this site, and only the third Riesling SGN overall, following the 1989 Clos Windsbuhl and the 1998 Rangen. These old vines yielded the equivalent of 12 hectoliters per hectare. A knockout.

Riesling Brand Sélection de Grains Nobles
Dr Loosen Riesling Beerenauslese (187ml) - 2006

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Riesling (100%)

Nose: Gorgeous aromas of apricot, lime zest and freesia introduce this elegant dessert white.

Palate: With its airy texture and weightlessness, it wears the sweetness and acidity effortlessly, with a very clean finish.

Notes: The 2006 Riesling Beerenauslese (berry select) is an intense, ultra-concentrated dessert wine made from grapes that have been shriveled by botrytis. In the words of Homer Simpson, 'This must be what angels taste like!' The golden foil that seals this 2006 Dr. Loosen Riesling Beerenauslese (along with the cork of superb density and quality) is a typical feature of a “superior quality” Beerenauslese in Germany.

Riesling Beerenauslese (187ml)
Dr Loosen Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese (187ml) - 2006

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Riesling (100%)

Nose: The wine has a multi-layered, deeply complex aroma of fruit, showing remarkably pure pear and pineapple scents.

Palate: So intensely sweet on the palate that it makes you shudder. But once again, Riesling’s naturally brilliant acidity keeps the wine lively and freshening.

Notes: Trockenbeerenauslese is German for “dried berry selection.” This is the most labour-intensive and intensely concentrated wine that we can produce. It is made by individually selecting only the fully shrivelled, botrytis-affected grapes and pressing them very slowly to yield a tiny bit of ultra-dense nectar. Made from an early picking of botrytized grapes from the Bernkasteler Lay vineyard.

Hugel & Fils Riesling Jubilee - 2007

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Riesling (100%)

Nose: Excellent, promising bouquet, lively, brisk, young and vivacious, completely open, with citrus aromas, lemongrass, verbena, gooseberry, fern, but with a discreet mineral touch that shows the fine, elegant character of the Riesling varietal.

Palate: On the palate, it is distinguished, harmonious and well-balanced, nicely structured, with a true dry wine finish that not only refreshes the taste buds and quenches the thirst, but fills the mouth.

Notes: Produced in a selection of the finest plots of the Hugel estate in the heart of the grand cru Schoenenbourg. This fantastic historical terroir has been almost exclusively devoted to Riesling for centuries. Keuper, marl, dolomite and gypsum, rich in fertilising agents, overlaid with fine layers of quaternary siliceous gravel, Vosges sandstone and Muschelkalk, with at its eastern extremity outcrops of Lias marl limestones.

Riesling Jubilee
Paul Cluver Estate Dry Encounter Riesling - 2016

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Riesling (100%)

Nose: On the nose, apple blossom, green apple, fynbos honey and beeswax aromas are apparent.

Palate: The crisp, clean palate is lemon sorbet-like, holding more weight than anticipated. There is good interaction between the acidity and residual sugar. Although the wine is quite controlled, it also shows a nervous character, so typical of Riesling.

Notes: The majority of the grapes for this vintage came from the 27 year old Riesling block with a small percentage from the younger blocks. The soil in the older block varies from a ‘ferricrete’ top layer (surficial sand and gravel masses) on decomposed Bokkeveld Shale and/or light clay. The younger blocks are also on duplex soils, but dominated by shale. The average gradient is 1:7 and height above sea level is 300 meters. In addition to vineyard sorting, a second stage of bunch and berry sorting occurs at the cellar to eliminate all traces of rot. Limited skin contact prior to fermentation. Pressing is always gentle. Only free run juice is fermented. After settling, the juice is fermented using a selected yeast culture. Fermentation is stopped on some of the wine, generally the batches with the highest acidity. The wine with lower sugar levels is left on the lees - this adds a creamy texture to the wine. The wine is then blended, stabilized and prepared for bottling. 20% fermented in large oak oval fermenters.

Palate: The Königsbacher Ölberg Riesling Trocken shows extreme elegance with a royal minerality. Tightly controlled acids kept it carefully balanced.

Weingut Clemens Busch Marienburg Riesling Raffes - 2008

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Riesling (100%)

Nose: Intense and layered nose that is ethereal, ripe and slatey.

Palate: Super concentrated tiny berry fruit that explodes like a bunker buster on the palate. The finish is epic and lasts ages.

Notes: The parcel Falkenlay lies between Fahrlay and Rothenpfad. The soil here runs deeper and is defined by gray slate. This area is regarded by the older winemakers to be the “filet mignon” of the Marienburg. A very special selection of healthy grapes is grown in the oldest part of the Falkenlay vineyard, which is called the Raffes. This selection creates the densest and most concentrated wine of our winery each year, the Marienburg Raffes.

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:
Riesling (100%)

Nose: Offers a delicate, slate mineral nose with melon and peach fruit.

Palate: Clear and dense, with beautiful fruit - mainly sweet peach with very delicate but insistent minerality and fine acidity, it presents itself gracefully. The sweetness is perfectly integrated and reflected more by the balanced and layered finish.

Notes: The Scharzhofberg vineyard has been greatly renowned for centuries as one of the greatest vineyards in all of Germany. According to Egon Müller, the monks' vineyard was first cited in existing records that date back as far as 1340. The wines are fermented and aged in thousand liter, old oak fuders, with the fermentation done with indigenous yeasts whenever possible. The wines are raised in the deep, very cold and damp cellars that date back to the days of the monks, and offer a perfect environment in which to gently mature wines built for the long haul.

Unit Volume: 750ml

Cultivars:

Nose: Exotic bouquet of passion fruit and mango, lifted by fine floral nuances.

Palate: The wine's luscious peach pit flavor and velvety texture are given shape and verve by a finely chiseled minerality. Dense yet airy, this Spatlese boasts great refinement and stunning length. One of the stars of the vintage.

Notes: The Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard has become intrinsically attached to the name of Joh. Jos. Prüm. The Estate owns five hectares of this majestic site. It offers perfect growing conditions for the Riesling grape with its deep, weather-beaten grey slate soil, good water support, extreme steepness of up to 70 % gradient, and its optimal south-south-west exposure. From perhaps the greatest vineyard in the Mosel, this wine will need little introduction to lovers of Prüm wines. It is, in fact, the most famous of the Prüm vineyards and always exhibits a wickedly seductive, pulpy, stone fruit rich personality. The 2009 is a blinder, as always it is in fact an Auslese level in ripeness terms yet there is a wonderful balance between the richness and acid/mineral elements of the wine.
