  1. Selbach-Oster Riesling Zeltinger Schlossberg 'Schmitt' 2016
    WA97
    $49.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points! The 2016 Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese "Schmitt" (AP 24 17) is a very clear, fresh and precise on the nose, with very fine mineral aromas of crunchy slate. This reminds me a bit of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr in its finesse, perfectly ripe fruit and the finest possible expression of minerals in wine. This is the finest Schmitt I have ever had and surely one of the greatest 2016s from the Mosel. Its finesse and elegance are mind-blowing. - Stephan Reinhardt, robertparker.com Learn More

    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! Picked on the 5th of December, the 2016 Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling Eiswein (AP 14 17) has a very clear and concentrated bouquet of pineapples and weathered slate. Sweet yet piquant and elegant on the palate, this is a highly finessed and salty-piquant picture-book ice wine with lingering salinity and grip. This is super precise and perfectly balanced. Tasted February 2018. - Stephan Reinhardt, robertparker.com Learn More

  5. Markus Molitor Riesling Spatlese Urziger Wurzgarten Weisse Kapsel 2016
    WA95
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95+ Points! The 2016 Riesling Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese (White Capsule) offers a deep and complex yet delicate and discreetly flinty nose with a very fine, fresh and bright citrus and stony aroma. Full-bodied, intense and lush on the palate, this is a silky textured, highly elegant and superbly balanced Würzgarten with an intense and powerful, very mineral and salty finish. The wine reveals great complexity along with serious grip and tensioned length but keeps its great finesse. Fermented and aged in large oak barrels until the bottling in September 2017. Tasted March 2018. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

  6. Dr. Burklin-Wolf Riesling Trocken Burklin Estate Pfalz 2016
    JS92
    VM90
    Special Price $9.98 Regular Price $22.00
    Availability:Out of Stock
    90 Points! Widely sourced but incorporating a high percentage of Wachenheim fruit, this epitomizes the clarity and precision characteristic of Bürklin-Wolf Rieslings, reinforced by the tendencies of its vintage toward animation and levity. White peach and lime are tinged with raw ginger and tangy, sweat-like salinity on the nose as well as on a polished, buoyant, infectiously juicy palate. Green herb pungency enhances the invigoration of an energetically sustained finish. (Each successive bottling of the Bürklin-Wolf generic will have had more time on the fine lees, but each represents the same initial blend. This bottling is labeled in some English-speaking markets as “Bürklin Estate Riesling.”) - David Schildknecht, Vinous Media

  7. Gunther Steinmetz Riesling Piesporter Treppchen von den Terrassen 2016
    WA95
    $44.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points!  The 2016 Piesporter Treppchen Riesling "von den Terrassen" was picked at 96° Oechsle ("strangely, like every year," says Stefan Steinmetz) and fermented in stainless steel down to 11.5% alcohol and 20 grams of residual sugar. It is deep, ripe and complex on the nose, with very fine slate aromas and remarkable precision. From up to 90-year-old vines on very well weathered gray slate in high altitudes just below the forest, this is a very elegant and linear but mouth-filling and structured Riesling that tastes very intense and complex, thanks to the old vines and the concentrated fruit. The sweetness of 20 grams per liter is almost completely swallowed by the immense mineral freshness and the well-structured body. "A wine that always needs a lot of time to show its potential," says Stefan Steinmetz. Indeed, this is a very promising, powerful, compact Riesling with remarkable grip and tension. The finish is mouthwateringly salty and highly complex. A great wine to be served in a decade. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate #236

  8. Schafer-Frohlich Riesling Spatlese Bockenauer Felseneck 2016
    WS93
    WA92
    VM91
    Special Price $29.98 Regular Price $50.00
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points! Sourced from steep plots with 30- to 40-year-old vines, the 2016 Nahe Riesling Bockenauer Felseneck Spätlese was picked early—just one week after the Kabinett—to preserve the acidity and with perfectly healthy berries at 95° Oechsle. This is a flinty-spicy, stony-mineral Riesling with beautiful herbal and minty notes. Round, very clear and elegant on the palate, this is a lithe, greatly finessed and delicate Spätlese with crystalline clarity and a slatey character. This reminds me of a Wehlener Sonnenuhr or Graacher Himmelreich from the Mosel. This is a highly precise and delicate Spätlese with lingering salinity and crystallization. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

  9. Hexamer Riesling Eiswein Meddersheimer Altenberg 2016 375ml Half Bottle
    JS96
    WA93
    $74.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! Picked on December 5th, the 2016 Nahe Riesling Eiswein Meddersheimer Altenberg offers a clear and elegant bouquet with lychee aromas and a very fine flintiness in the background. Clear, lush, round and piquant on the palate, with beautifully ripe raisin flavors and crystalline acidity, this is an opulent, fresh, fine and very elegant Eiswein with sweet, intense fruit and a stimulating, well-structured finish. Bottled in April 2017 with 6.23% alcohol and 196 grams of residual sugar. Due to slightly softer acidity (almost 11 grams per liter), the Altenberg tastes a bit richer, softer and sweeter than the corresponding Rheingrafenberg. However, both are gorgeous. 375-milliliter bottles. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

    WS92
    JS94
    WA93
    Special Price $19.98 Regular Price $31.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    93 Points! The 2016 Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese (AP 19 17) opens with its typical coolish-flinty and spicy bouquet that indicates a lovely ripeness and transparency. On the palate, this is an enormously lush, piquant and salty Schlossberg with grip, salt and tension. Extremely dangerous since you probably cannot stop drinking once you have started. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

    WA93
    $21.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    93 Points! The 2016 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett (AP 18 17) is pure and flinty on the nose, offering ripe and darker toned stone fruit aromas intertwined with crunchy slate and flinty aromas. On the palate, this is a super lush and stimulating Kabinett with fine tannins, grip and lingering salinity. This is a gorgeous Kabinett, and it's extremely stimulating. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

  12. Richter Riesling Kabinett Elisenberger 2016
    WA93
    $18.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! From another tributary of the Mosel, the 2016 Elisenberger Riesling Kabinett is from slate soils rich in quartzite. The wine opens with clean and flinty but also ripe and concentrated fruit on the nose, intermixed with crunchy slate flavors. Lush, piquant, very salty and stunningly pure and fresh, this is a very fine, elegant and unique Mosel Riesling that has a bit of the precision and mineral character of an Eiswein. The grapes are picked seven to ten days later than the Himmelreich Kabinett, and the acidity is super clear and precise, cutting through the concentrated fruit like a laser sword. This is a very promising Kabinett, perhaps the finest of the 2016 vintage chez MFR. Tasted in March 2018. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

  13. Richter Riesling Spatlese Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr 2016
    WA96
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! Picked with 10% of botrytis, the 2016 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese is beautifully pure, precise and fine on the nose. Silky, lush and very pleasant on the palate, this is a salty-piquant and nicely racy Spätlese of remarkable finesse and elegance. The finish is enormously salty, pure and piquant, and the sweetness of 90+ grams per liter is swallowed by the mineral freshness. This is another extraordinary Richter Spätlese from 2016. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

  14. Markus Molitor Riesling Auslese *** Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Grune Kapsel 2016
    WA99
    $89.98
    Availability:In Stock
    99 Points! From over 100-year-old vines and fermented in an eight-year-old 2,000-liter Stockinger vat and 15% in small oak barrels, the 2016 Riesling Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese *** (Green Capsule) offers a deep and concentrated, terribly fresh and oaky nose. Round and lush on the palate, this is a very elegant, intense and refined Sonnenuhr with super lush fruit, very fine tannins and ripe acidity. Molitor is extremely proud of all his Sonnenuhr bottlings, but they demand a much longer period of bottle aging. The richness (which is still elegant and fine) and the oak flavors (which are discreet but present) will surely integrate, so the wine has huge potential. Bottled in September 2017; tasted March 2018. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

  15. Markus Molitor Riesling Auslese ** Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Goldkapsel 2016
    WA97
    $49.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points! Molitor and Mosel fans shouldn't miss the chance to buy at least a case of the 2016 Riesling Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese ** (Golden Capsule)—one of the five different Auslesen Markus Molitor selected in his most important grand cru. The sweet two-starred Auslese comes from the Schiesswingert and the Fliegenberg. It opens with a deep, clear, very fine and complex bouquet of perfectly ripe Riesling berries with very fine botrytis flavors and refreshing flinty notes from the fine slate of the Sonnenuhr. Lush and generous on the palate, with a perfectly ripe and concentrated Riesling fruit, very fine minerals and crunchy slate flavors, this is an exciting Auslese of great finesse and elegance. The finish is delicate but tensioned thanks to the crunchy-salty slate sensation that gives structure as well as finesse and energy. Bottled in September 2017; tasted March 2018.- Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

  16. Markus Molitor Riesling Auslese ** Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Weisse Kapsel 2016
    WA98
    $49.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points! The 2016 Riesling Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese ** (White Capsule) is a different style of Mosel Riesling compared to the other 2016 Auslesen. Fermented in different oak vats, from barrique size to 3,000-liter vats (including one big Stockinger vat that was new), this is clear, ripe and complex on the nose, with toasty as well as smoky-mineral notes framing the perfectly ripe and elegant stone fruit aromas. Full-bodied, round and complex, with gorgeous sweetness and mind-blowing silkiness and balance, this is a rich yet fine, elegant, highly complex and persistent Auslese from Markus's most important single vineyard. The 2016 is concentrated yet very clear and elegant, revealing very fine tannins and a very long, complex finish. It already drinks with great wonder, and this wine will even gain more complexity though it's already hard to resist. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate
