2014 Loosen Bros Riesling Dr. L 2014 Loosen Bros Riesling Dr. L

Dr. L comes exclusively from traditional Mosel vineyards, read steep slopes and slate soils, and serves well as an excellent introduction to the elegant and racy style that is classic Mosel Riesling. Vivid, fresh aromas suggest clean slate and stone fruits like peach and apricot; bright and fresh on the tongue with lively interplay between intensity of delicate ripe fruit and a bright fresh acidity that keeps things bouncing along crisp and clean, ultra-refreshing to the finish. Brilliant value, too!

Produce of predominantly Graacher, Wehlener and Bernkastel Riesling fruit blended to achieve a kind of quintessential middle-Mosel wine; delicate, fragrant, ripe Riesling aromas that suggest citrus flower, vanilla; ripe and just round at the edges, brilliantly balanced with bright acidity that charges the palate and keeps everything fresh and moving forward.

2012 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese Joh. Jos. PRÜM

Crisp aromas of passion fruit, nut oils and cinnamon. Rich, sleek and invigorating, but with creamy tropical fruit flavors remaining light and ethereal. Well-balanced, elegant and impeccably long. This does not have the depth of the auction wine, but at present more it offers greater drinkability. Rated 94. - Joel B. Payne,

2010 Maximin Grunhauser Abtsberg Riesling Spätlese SCHUBERT 2010 Maximin Grunhauser Abtsberg Riesling Spätlese SCHUBERT

The Maximin Grünhaus estate lies at the foot of a long steep south-facing slope on the left bank of the Ruwer river, about two kilometres before it joins the Mosel. The estate belongs to the von Schubert family and is divided into three separate but contiguous vineyards: the Abtsberg, the Herrenberg, and the Bruderberg. Wines harvested from the Abtsberg vineyard were originally destined for the table of the Abbot of the Abbey of Sankt-Maximin. The site covers 14 hectares (just shy of 35 acres), parts of which have been planted with vines for over a thousand years. The subsoil is blue Devonian slate and the hillside runs south-east to south-west, achieving a gradient of up to 70%. Abtsberg wines are characterised by a finely structured, subtle minerality, racy acidity, generous fruit and great delicacy. They are amongst the longest lived Rieslings of the region.
