Leitz Geisenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Eiswein 2010

94 Vinous, Joel Payne
(1/2012) "Bright aromas of camomile tea, orange rind and lemon oil, plus a whiff of smoky botrytis. The supple black cherry flavor is animated by finely chiseled minerality. Dense yet vibrant, this is what eiswein should be in a vintage that produced very few examples of this quality."

G. D. Vajra "Petracine" Langhe Riesling 2012

A stunning Riesling from one of our favorite Piedmont wine families! If you like the dry, Alsatian style of Riesling, this is a must-try. This wine makes a name for Italian Riesling!

91 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(10/2013) "Vajra's 2012 Langhe Riesling is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Lime, tropical fruits, white flowers and spices all jump from the glass. This is one of the more immediate, open, young Vajra Rieslings I can remember tasting, which means the 2012 will drink well beautifully right out of the gate. Floral notes add lift on a finish of exceptional beauty."

Adam Dhron Hofberg Riesling Spatlese 2011

Importer Terry Theise says this is his wine of the vintage, and winemaker Andreas Adams greatest achievement to-date!
91 Wine Advocate
(4/2013) "From healthy fruit, as usual for wine of this Pradikat chez Adam - the botrytis having been picked-out beforehand from the relevant parcels - his 2011 Dhronhofberger Riesling Spatlese is, nonetheless, far-gone on sheer ripeness and nearly decadent in its aromas and lush, almost palpably pulpy palate expression of papaya, mango, orange, banana and musk melon. Creamy and glossy in feel and ripe though it is, this, nonetheless, displays an admirable sense of transparency to subtly stony and liquid floral nuances not to mention ample primary juiciness to serve for a refreshing finish. I suspect it will be best enjoyed over the next 10-12 years, but Adam's wines have been evolving (going from strength-to-strength) so steadily and his approach is so singular that one really doesn't have obvious benchmarks for age-ability."

Selbach-Oster "Rotlay" Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling 2010

96 Our Score
93 Wine Advocate
(2/2012) "The remarkably nuanced, savory complexity as well as the combination of creaminess with vivacity and elegance that characterize this site at its best certainly accrue to the Selbach's block-picked (at 140 aggregate Oechsle!), Pradikat-free 2010 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Rotlay, just as in this year's corresponding Spatlesen and Auslesen. Nut paste, honey, citrus cream, dried apricot, and brown spices are among the layers to be found densely packed yet coursing with almost electric energy and citricity (at 14 grams acidity!). Its hold on my palate is equaled by that on my imagination. Following this over the next two or more decades will be an adventure, and I suspect that it will unfold its layers and its sheer dynamism will turn to captivating dance."

Kanta Adelaide Hills Riesling 2013

Legendary German winemaker Egon Muller is making vividly intense Rieslings down under!
92 Our Score
92 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(7/2014) "Greenish yellow. Fresh pear and melon on the mineral- and ginger-accented nose. Chewy citrus and orchard fruit flavors show a hint of leesiness and a chalky mineral underpinning. Rounds out with air while maintaining precision and vivacity thanks to a solid spine of juicy acidity. Closes with lingering pear and orange notes and excellent mineral-driven persistence."

Selbach Oster Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese 2012

92+ Our Score
92+ Wine Advocate
(2/2015) "As the dry wine, the sweet 8.5% alcohol 2012 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese is more delicate and subtle on the nose compared to the relative of the Schlossberg. Picked eight days earlier than the latter, the Sonnenuhr is very sweet on the palate as well, but reveals more finesse and raciness, more Spiel and elegance. It is a stimulating and mineral-flavored wine, which I would not serve (or drink) before 2025."

Muller-Catoir Mussbach Riesling Kabinett 2011

91+ Our Score
90 Wine Advocate
(3/2014) "Muller-Catoir's 2011 Mussbacher Riesling Kabinett features ripe peach, persimmon and musk melon tinged with caraway, celery seed, and bacon fat as if a bit of Gewurztraminer had been blended in. But a threading of fresh lime enlivens a silken-textured and buoyant palate not nearly as soft as the nose had led me to anticipate. The hint of citrus here is joined by a mouthwatering touch of salinity in a long, luscious finish. I would plan on enjoying this by 2018 in contexts where it judicious but generous sweetness is welcome."

Domaine Schoffit "Harth" Alsace Riesling 2013

91 Wine Spectator
92+ Our Score
(8/2015) Whoa! Tasted blind, we would've guessed this as Grand Cru. The $23 price is outrageous as this beauty from Domaine Schoffit drinks more like a $40 wine. The fruit is sourced from a single vineyard (lieu dit) called Harth, which is a continuation of the famous Herrenweg cru. So delicious, look for orchard and stone fruit flavors and wonderfully high acidity. A very precise style of Riesling, it cries out for grilled veal sausages from Paulina Meat Market!

Belle Pente Willamette Valley Riesling 2008

90 Our Score
(12/2014) This gorgeous and dry Riesling comes from Yamhill Vineyards in the heart of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA in Willamette Valley. Crisp apple and aromatic floral notes jump out of the glass. The wine is medium in body with crisp, zippy acidity that adds to the citrus tones on the long finish. This is a Riesling to accompany foods such as fish, spicy cuisine, roast chicken, turkey and sushi.
