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's:
Dreissigacker Riesling Trocken 2018
Rheinhessen: ''Vividly peachy and bursting with racy acidity this 2018 is everything you’d want in a wine at this price with layers of tangerine, apricot, lime and a hint of green apple along with wet (chalky) stones, verbena, caraway seeds (something unique, somewhat suggested by the winery after tasting it) as well as delicate floral tones, steely mineral and a touch of tropical essences. Keep your eyes open for this one.'' 91 Points, Grapelive.com (USA)
J.L Villa Wolf Wachenheimer Riesling 2016
Pfalz: The Wachenheimer Riesling has an elegant mineral purity and good intensity on the palate. It is a refreshing wine that’s very easy to drink, but there is also a distinctive stony character that reflects the terroir of Königswingert.
Reichsrat Von Buhl Riesling Trocken 2017
Pfalz: ''Its gorgeous and an outstanding value! Iris and lemon blossom on the nose anticipate the piquant and zesty aspects of a satin-textured palate, where a sense of extract sweetness supports further flavours of ginseng, white peach and sweet corn. This illustrates admirably how density and body are compatible - in the best instances, anyway - with playful animation.'' 90 Points, David Schildknecht, Vinous Media
Von Hovel Saar Riesling Feinherb 2017
Mosel: '''Look for aromas of amalfi lemon, blood orange, with a little bit of patina. Nice juicy acidity, spicy accompaniment, high intensity; stylish wine.'' 90 Points, Falstaff Magazine
Dr H Thanisch Riesling Kabinett 2017
Mosel: "Sweet honey and citrus aromas, lemon, lime, fresh and gorgeous, a lovely nose, a step up in ripeness and intensity from the 2018 vintage kabinett. It's also had an extra year in bottle to build its bouquet and richness. A very smart wine." 93 Points, Huon Hooke, therealreview.com
G.H. von Mumm 50 Riesling Trocken 2017
Rheingau: GH Von Mumm '50th Parallel' Trocken Riesling has cracking acidity, fresh apple-like fruit and super balance.
