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."

(12/31/2016) "Plush and fruity, with concentrated red peach, melon and apricot tart flavors that are layered with plenty of rich, spicy notes. Plush creaminess lingers with unctuous honeyed accents on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 200 cases made."

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."

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."

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."

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."

Hofgut Falkenstein "Niedermenniger Herrenberg" Mosel Riesling Spatlese 2015

92 Our Score
(11/2016) This off-dry Riesling from the much-lauded 2015 vintage is complex delicious and extremely youthful. The wonderful sweetness is tempered by an electric tooth-stinging acidity. Flavors of ripe lime and red and green apple are enhanced by extremely high minerality and a very dense texture that goes on and on. Even 10 days after opening, our sample bottle was still going strong! An excellent bottle of Mosel Riesling.

St.Urbans-Hof "Ockfener Bockstein" Mosel Riesling Kabinett 2015

92 Wine Spectator
(12/31/2016) "This is racy and pure, featuring intense minerality to the green apple, peach and Bosc pear flavors. Very lithe midpalate, with a steely finish that offers notes of white stone and dried herbs. Drink now through 2022. 500 cases made."

Seehof Feinherb Rheinhessen Riesling 2015

90 Our Score
(6/2016) The wines of Seehof are not your typical Rheinhessen renditions. Florian's wines are all about understated elegance. They are calm and precise, displaying immense clarity. His wines display many of the hallmark characteristics of the region, but they shine through in such a subtle way that they only register on the periphery, never dominating the wines. The 2015 "Feinherb" smells like a blossoming lime tree. The palate is airy and pure. There is a faint, yet distinct bitter note that reminds one of pineapple cut from close to the core. The finish is long, with bright acid and minerality. This is the first time they have come into the Chicago market and we are very excited to be working with these beautiful wines.
