  1. Selbach Oster Riesling Kabinett Zeltinger Sonnenuhr 2017
    WS91
    WA94
    $21.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! The 2017 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett is bright in color and flavors—it's very elegant and subtle on the deep, refined and aromatically discreet nose. Salty-piquant, vibrantly fresh and even racy on the palate, this is a juicy, intense, very complex, straight and crystalline Riesling with a seemingly coolish character but a warm and wide soul. The finish is piquant, fresh and salty, with the tension of iron. This is still young but already very attractive. Tasted in March 2019. - Stephan Reinhardt, robertparker.com Learn More
  2. Vols Riesling Spatlese Wiltinger Braunfels Vols I 2015
    WA92+
    VM91
    Special Price $19.98 Regular Price $34.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92+ Points! The 2015 Riesling Spätlese Vols I (AP 08 16) is sourced from almost 55-year-old vines in the eponymous vineyard that is officially part of the Wiltinger Braunfels. The wine opens with a ripe and subtly intense Riesling bouquet with floral and herbal aromas. Round, finessed and piquant on the palate, this is a gorgeously lush and intense yet precise and frisky Riesling of remarkable elegance, mineral grip and tension. The finish is long, complex and salty and very stimulating, although the 2015 is still very young. - Stephan Reinhardt, robertparker.com Learn More

  4. 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

  5. Fritz Haag Brauneberger Riesling Kabinett 2016
    JS91
    VM92
    $24.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points!  A faintly cheesy fermentative overlay lifts with aeration to reveal ripe apple, honeydew and quince. Buoyant, silken-textured and generously, lusciously fruity, the palate features a judicious measure of entirely supportive sweetness and an influx of fresh grapefruit and lime that lend delightful animation and eventual refreshment. A hint of almond paste on the finish reinforces the sense of ripe melon and northern orchard fruits, but the wine’s citricity and undertone of wet stone never let up. This clings both soothingly and stimulatingly – an impeccable example of its genre (and one that entirely eclipses its rather inexplicably weak vintage 2015 predecessor). Calling it “super clean and clear,” Oliver Haag predicted that this Kabinett will be a fine ager, and I concur on all counts, other than the need for the nose to shed its slight funk, which will happen within a couple of years.  - David Schildknecht, Vinous Media

  6. Dr. Crusius Riesling Trocken Top of the Rock Nahe 2015
    WA91
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91 Points!  Crusius's 2015 Riesling Top of The Rock is a negative selection of the grands crus Rotenfels and Felsenberg and a bit of the Traiser Bastei. It opens with a clear, deep and intense bouquet of flinty volcanic aromas along with ripe and concentrated Riesling-on-the-rocks flavors. The wine is full-bodied, round and piquant on the palate, really vital and structured by prickling minerals. It shows power and finesse and finishes with a long, stimulatingly salty aftertaste. I would recommend cellaring this excellent Riesling for another two or three years, but you can surely enjoy it over 10-15 years.  Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate #228, December 2016

  7. Monchhof Riesling Spatlese Urzig Wurzgarten 2015
    WA91
    $27.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91 Points! The 2015 Ürzig Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese is clear, deep and discreet on the nose, with ripe, concentrated fruit and beautiful flinty and herbal aromas. The wine is light, lush and round on the palate, enormously elegant and provided with highly delicate "salts" and "minerals." The finish is aromatic, beautifully balanced and extremely stimulating. This is a gorgeous Spätlese from one of the Mosel's most fascinating vineyards. Bottled with 8% alcohol and 77 grams of residual sugar, it tastes medium-sweet rather than anything else. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate #230

  8. Clemens Busch Riesling Kabinett Pundericher 2015
    VM91
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91 Points!  At only 7.5 percent alcohol, it goes without saying that this bottling is prominently sweet, though that sweetness doesn’t come off as syrupy. On the contrary, there is a delightfully bright fresh juiciness of lime and white currant, while the sweetness is appropriate to a simultaneous, harmoniously integrated expression of candied and confitured citrus and berry, as well as to a hint of quince jelly that is allied with glycerol slick. The finish is gushingly intense and lusciously juicy although entirely fruit-dominated and to that extent not enormously complex. But I would not be surprised to witness some interesting counterpoint emerging with bottle age. (There is no corresponding generic Busch Kabinett this year.)
