    2015 Saar Riesling ‘Schiefer’ Trocken, Willems Willems

    £1850

    Smoky earthen notes of crushed stone and salt accent crisp pineapple and nectarine notes here. While dry and lean in style, a kiss of residual sugar accentuates its juicy, mouthwatering feel. Bristling lime and tangerine acidity leads a long, lip-smacking finish rimmed with salty minerals.

  • 2016 Lorcher Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese, Eva FrickeSweet wine, White Wine

    2016 Lorcher Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese, Eva Fricke

    £3500

    Eva Fricke is a superstar of the Rheingau, with her 13-hectare estate, that she only started in 2006. Her Rieslings stun with their focus and texture, they are some of the most soulful, expressive wines coming out of Germany today.

    The 2016 Lorcher Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese is a late harvest (Spätlese) wine made from vines planted in the early 1970s.   This sweet, intense and concentrated Riesling opens with a bright, aromatic bouquet with some tea aromas. Lush and elegant on the palate with lychee and passion fruit tones.  This is a mouth-filling and generous Spätlese with ripe, juicy fruit and an almost salty minerality.

    2012 Riesling Spätlese, Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Dr Loosen

    £3600

    Wehlener Sonnenuhr is a precipitously steep and rocky vineyard that yields some of the most elegant and sophisticated white wines in the world. It has very light soil and the purest blue slate of any Mosel vineyard. This gives the wine a lively minerality and a delicate, crisp acidity that perfectly balances the bright flavours of white peach and lemon. It’s an aristocratic and charming wine that dances gracefully on the palate.

    Spätlese is a richer, bolder style of Riesling made from healthy grapes harvested a week or more later than Kabinett. The longer hang time increases the sugar ripeness of the fruit, giving it higher potential alcohol (11–12 percent). It also increases the “aromatic ripeness,” which brings deeper, more developed white and yellow fruit flavours to the wine. Fermentation is stopped at a finished alcohol level similar to Kabinett. Since the potential alcohol of the unfermented juice is higher, Spätlese will typically have more residual sweetness than Kabinett.

  • 2020 Grunlack Riesling Spatlese, Schloss Johannisberg Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2020 Grunlack Riesling Spatlese, Schloss Johannisberg

    £4600

    The legendary Schloss Johannisberg is steeped in history. The vineyards were planted on the orders of the Roman Emperor Charlemagne. Planted solely with Riesling grapes in 1720, Schloss Johannisberg was the world’s first Riesling Estate and plays a significant part in wine history. It was here in 1775 that the Spätlese quality was discovered using late picked grapes suffering from “noble rot”. Following this discovery, in 1787 the estate gave Auslese, Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese to the wine world.

    This 2020 Grunlack (Green label) Riesling Spätlese opens in the glass with an exotic bouquet of orange peel, pineapple, and lime complemented by ripe, red apple and delicious mineral undertones. Initial sweetness is perfectly balanced by a juicy freshness on the palate and a delicately creamy finish.

    The south-facing vineyard is steep, with a gradient of 45° and climbs from 114 to 181 metres above sea level. The Riesling vines are grown in quartz stone from the Taunus hillsides interspersed with red clay and topped with loam and rich loss, which retains water and the heat of the day. This unique vineyard sees the 50° parallel run directly through the vineyard and the forest on the top of the Taunus hillsides protects the vines from cold winds. The vines produce limited yields and the grapes are carefully harvested by hand. Spätlese is translated as “late harvest”: the grapes are harvested at least seven days after the normal harvest, so they are riper, have higher sugar content and produce wines of greater intensity.

  • 2015 Riesling Silberlack 1st Growth, Schloss JohannisbergWhite Wine

    2015 Riesling Silberlack 1st Growth, Schloss Johannisberg

    £5500

    The Schloss Johannisberg Riesling Großes Gewächs Silberlack (Silver Seal) is one of the finest dry white Rieslings in Germany.  Grapes for the wine were handpicked and fermentation took place in 1,200-litre old oak barrels from Schloss Johannisberg oak and lasted for six weeks. The wine was then left on its fine yeast lees for seven months, adding complexity and weight to the wine.

    Deep lemon yellow in colour this wine shows complex aromas of mellow apricot and quince, complemented by pear, white floral notes, a hint of smoky minerality and an elegant spiciness in the background. Concentrated on the palate, with mouthwatering acidity and a long, clean finish.

  • 2001 Riesling Auslese, Ürziger Würzgarten Goldkapsel, Dr. Loosen Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2001 Riesling Auslese, Ürziger Würzgarten Goldkapsel, Dr. Loosen

    £14500

    The Ürziger Würzgarten vineyard is blazing red and insanely steep, it fills a picturesque amphitheatre formed by a dramatic bend in the Mosel river. Although it is directly adjacent to the vineyards of Erden, this site produces a completely different kind of wine, with exotic, spicy aromas and a mesmerizing earthiness. No other vineyard on the Mosel produces wines so bursting with tropical fruit flavours. Many of the Dr Loosens estate’s oldest vines are found here.

    This Auslese is which means selected out of the harvest is a luscious, medium-sweet wine made from clusters of very ripe grapes that have been partially affected by botrytis.   This classic example is now 20 years old and in majestic condition.  Stored since purchase many moons ago in our cellar and last sampled in 2019 with its sister the 2001 Riesling Auslese, Wehlener Sonnenuhr – both were extraordinary.
