Featuring the King of German wines, Riesling; through the eyes of three German Winemakers of the Year and three rising stars we believe may one day achieve the same title!
Our German Winemaker's of The Year 6 Pack contains 1 x wine each from the following German Riesling:
Balthasar Ress Hattenheimer Schützenhaus Riesling Kabinett Rheingau 2016
Rheingau: ''Pale lemon colour in the glass and has just enough sweetness. Orange blossom on the nose with wet stone and fresh peach, ripe apple flavours on the palate. Refreshing acidity.'' 93 Points, Natalie Maclean
J.L Villa Wolf Wachenheimer Riesling 2019
Pfalz: ''Generous and full of life with plenty of citrus and fresh herbs, the balance of ripeness and crisp acidity very attractive. Long, lemony finish.'' 92 Points, Stuart Pigott, Jamessuckling.com
Dr H Thanisch Riesling Kabinett 2019 Mosel: ''Expressive, juicy and seductive, with spice, lemon-lime and Bosc pear flavors in harmony, supported by vibrant acidity and a minerally undertow.'' 91 Points, Wine Spectator Magazine (Previous Vintage Review)
Max Ferdinand Richter Riesling 2019
Mosel: ''This delivers a very expressive bouquet of lime peel, pear, a nice touch of Brauneberg-like botanicals, a good base of slate and a top-note of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is bright, medium-full and beautifully balanced, with a lovely core, fine mineral drive and bounce, zesty acids and a long, complex and succulent finish. This is drinking beautifully out of the blocks, but has the balance to also age gracefully.'' John Gilman, View From The Cellar
Reichsrat Von Buhl Riesling Trocken Pfalz 2020
Pfalz: This is a juicy, mineral-rich Riesling, with the extra palate-weight of the vintage proving a perfect foil for the rocky texture, the mouth-watering, citrus-edged acidity and near-absolute-dry finish.
G.H. von Mumm 50 Riesling Trocken 2018
Rheingau: GH Von Mumm '50th Parallel' Trocken Riesling has cracking acidity, fresh apple-like fruit and super balance.
