    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.

  • 2003 Riesling Kabinett, Erdener Treppchen, Dr LoosenWhite Wine

    2003 Riesling Kabinett, Erdener Treppchen, Dr Loosen

    £3650

    The Erdener Treppchen vineyard is so steep that stone steps were built into the hillside long ago to help workers reach the vines. The iron-infused, red slate soil produces wines that are muscular and complex, with intense minerality on the finish. Wines from Erdener Treppchen are more like a powerful, hard-body rock climber than the graceful ballet dancer of Wehlener Sonnenuhr. They are precocious in their youth but like this 18-year-old example benefit greatly from years in the bottle.

    The lightest and most delicate style of Mosel Riesling, Kabinett is produced from the earliest picking of fruit, with a potential alcohol between 10 and 11 percent. Early picking retains higher acidity, with flavours that lean more toward citrus and green fruits. Fermentation is stopped by chilling, which results in a lower final alcohol (typically 7.5–8.5 percent) and a moderate amount of residual sweetness that beautifully balances the bright acidity

  • 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.

  • 2012 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Auslese #11, Willi Schaefer Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2012 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Auslese #11, Willi Schaefer

    £7500

    This is one of the wines of the world and only made in tiny quantities.  From a tiny estate based in the village of Graach, Schaefer produces some of the Mosel’s most intense and powerful wines from the Himmelreich and Domprobst vineyards. The latter vineyard has particularly diverse soil types so several parcels tend to be vinified and bottled separately as different Fuder numbers. The wines are all aged and fermented in large oak fuders and usually bottled by the May following the vintage. These are taut, powerful and complex, some of Germany’s finest and most mineral wines.

    This 2012 Auslese #11 is an extraordinarily beautiful magical wine.  Made with a small percentage of botrytised grapes added to the winemaking process it soars from the glass with complex aromas of lime, orange, slate, petrol and lavender. The palate is deep, textural, concentrated, pure, racy with a rock-solid core of fruit and huge mineral drive.  Snappy acids bring everything into focus.   The length of the finish is incredible with grip and purity and lingering salinity.  The recommended drinking window is 2020 to 2060 – so plenty of time to enjoy staring at the bottle and resisting temptation!
