We are very excited to present the Kalinda Rheingau Riesling. The wine comes from one of the top producers in the Rheingau that pays the utmost attention to detail in the vineyards and the winery. Aromas of honeysuckle, freshly zested lemons and stone fruits lead to a palate that is alive with yellow apples, nectarine and a hint of lanolin. This off-dry Riesling is balanced by loads of acidity and is the perfect pairing for spicy or fatty foods. (Olivia Ragni K&L Germany liaison)
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Rüdesheimer Magdalenenkreuz Riesling Spätlese (AP #87 16) is pure and precise on the nose. Super ripe, but clear and healthy Riesling flavors, as well as some tropical fruit flavors (mainly pineapples), are displayed. On the palate, the wine is very lucid, piquant and intense, revealing a great precision and lovely concentration. The acidity is racy, but ripe and will perfectly integrate into the lush and fruity texture. Pure and salty in the finish, this is a Spätlese that can compete with the best from the Mosel. Great tension and finesse here ...Read More »
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Rheingau Riesling trocken Eins Zwei Dry is very clear, fresh and stony on the nose, a classic Rheingau Riesling with bright, fine and citric fruit aromas intertwined with crushed stone flavors. The racy attack on the palate is followed by a pure and salty taste, and a pretty intense and aromatic finish with a very nice phenolic grip. This Rheingau Riesling is refreshingly pure, straight and dry, and its acidity is mercilessly Riesling-like." (10/2016) K&L Notes: A wonderfully dry, but not mouth-searing, style of Riesling for those who love the delicate attri... Read More »
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 10% alcohol 2015 Riesling Dragonstone (tasted from AP #16 16) is pretty smoky on the nose where ripe Riesling flavors are displayed. Lush and fruity on the palate, this is a light but pretty intense and charming Riesling with grip and raciness, but not much length. It is an enjoyable wine with a nice finesse, but a rather robust finish." (10/2016) K&L Notes: Extraordinarily aromatic, vigorous wines from a vintner who grows more commanding each vintage. This is the wine that once was called Rüdesheimer Drachenstein, and it’s the wine David Schildknecht said was th... Read More »
A bright, energetic style of rosé that shows wonderful fruit textures and flavors that carry on and on. Lots of strawberry, spicy rhubarb and elegant flower petals abound throughout. This an amazing value for the high quality this wine displays. As I’ve been drinking the 2014 until just recently, I suspect that this will also be drinking unbelievably well right up to and through the next vintage—good stuff! (Eric Story, K&L German wine buyer)
This is quintessential cool climate Pinot Noir. Lighter bodied with snappy aromatics, subtle spice and a mix of fresh red and blue fruits. A strong pick for an easy going sipper which also pairs well with an array of foods and will even math up nicely with the majority of fish dishes.
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Citrus-colored, the 2015 Rüdesheimer Riesling Trocken opens with a somewhat creamy flavor before ripe seed fruit aromas intermix with notes of wet and milled stones. The attack on the palate is very racy, fresh and pure, and the wine reveals a lot of citric flavors intermixed with stone flavors. Medium-bodied and pure but intense, this is a very straight, fresh and grippy, dry Riesling. It has a mouthwatering astringency in the finish. Remarkably fresh and pure for a 2015. A very expressive cool-climate Riesling that gives me an almost Canadian feeling. ...Read More »
This is an extraordinarily unique blend of Portugeiser, Dornfelder and Pinot Noir. It has a bright, fragrant nose, super creamy mousse with pretty strawberry fruit flavors accented by a hint of lemon zest and a dry, refreshing finish. It is great on its own, but has the body to complement a variety of foods, making it an excellent and versatile choice for entertaining. Try it with grilled pork sausages!
Now into the third generation of leadership, this winery has over one hundred years of winemaking tradition.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Riesling 101 is a medium-dry blend from the three single vineyards Lenchen, Doosberg and Hendelberg -- of which only the must of the Doosberg was fermented in oak. Clear, pure, fresh and with bright fruit aromas on the nose intermixed with some flinty/stony notes, this is a light-bodied, salty, pure and refreshing Riesling with a straight, juicy, but also mineral character with a gorgeous sweetness. This wine is more filigreed and lighter than the powerful Lenchen Alte Reben. (SR)" (12/2015)
From Johannes Leitz, the creative winemaker behind Dragonstone Riesling and EINS-ZWEI-DRY. Now, mit bubbles. What more can we say, but, "Feierabend!"
From Johannes Leitz, the creative winemaker behind Dragonstone Riesling and EINS-ZWEI-DRY, a bubbly take on one of our favorite German rosés.
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Green floral notes and lemon zest perfume this pristine, pretty kabinett. Zesty lemon-lime acidity lends a breathless elegance, brightened by sweet-tart streaks of mango and tangerine that pucker and delight. Drinks gorgeously now, but will continue to improve through at least 2020. (ALCI)" (8/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Harvested between October 20 to 25 the Schloss Vollrads Riesling Kabinett shows a very clear, pure and subtle nose and starts with a racy attack on the sweet palate. This is a very mineral, quite complex and firmly structured Kabinett with a good length and an ...Read More »
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Oestricher Lenchen Riesling Kabinett is very clear, fresh and pure on the smoky nose... Fruity, piquant and really sweet, this is a light 8% alcohol Riesling with 45 grams per liter of residual sugar that gives a charming (maybe too charming taste, at least for Northern European palates). Although, the Spreitzer's reduced the residual sugar from 65 grams to now 45 grams. However, this is a fresh and fruity German Kabinett classic. (SR)" (12/2015)
95 points Vinous: "From ancient terraces high above the Berg Roseneck that Leitz began restoring at the turn of the millennium, this bottling as usual finished with residual sugar just above the cut-off for legal Trockenheit. Nearly every installment since has been memorable, but none more so than this one. A glorious nose mingles ripe white peach, gentian and iris perfume, raw almond, along with intimations of the crustacean shell reduction that goes on to capture the salivary glands on a palate generous in succulent fruit and bittersweet inner-mouth floral perfume. A riv ...Read More »
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Oestricher Rosengarten Riesling trocken GG is clear, deep, fresh and mineral on the nose, displaying bright fruit and lemon flavors. Full-bodied, rich and very elegant, this is a mouthful of silky textured, powerful and juicy Riesling with a lot of tension, finesse and grip. The long finish is very salty, full of complexity and indicates a great aging potential. Again (like in 2013), this is Spreitzer's most fascinating Riesling of the vintage. (SR)" (10/2015) 90 points Vinous: "Now that the Spreitzers’ immaculately-tended riverside near-monopole is an officially re ...Read More »
Residual sugar: 45.8 g/l ABV: 9.5%
Vinous: "From a riverside site highly susceptible to botrytis and consequently in recent years often problematic, this bottling’s relative success reflects the Spreitzer’s knack in picking and sympathy for alcoholic levity. Crunchy apple and winter pear are wreathed in bittersweet floral perfume, mint and tarragon for a coolingly stimulating performance. The sweetness suffices to enhance the fruit but backs off in the finish. Polished and buoyant... (DS)" (5/2016)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Well-spiced flavors of peach, apple and apricot flavors blend well. Vanilla, chocolate and cream notes chime in, with a long finish of glazed citrus and hints of tarragon. Drink now." 60 cases imported. –KM According to the importer Terry Theise: "In effect this is an Auslese without botrytis; high toned and still needing to integrate its lavishly vanilla-flowery sweetness; it’s a highly regal wine, impressive but not really calm, and it will reward patience – lots of patience."

This estate, which dates back to 1875, cultivates 222 acres of Riesling using organic methods and hand harvesting. Tasting notes from the importer: "The Estate Spätlese is sourced from parcels that neighbor the estate’s classified single-vineyard sites. It also includes pre-selection fruit from the top sites, which gives the wine an extra dimension of fruit and mineral intensity. It is made with the same exacting standards and meticulous attention to detail as the single-vineyard wines, and is designed to showcase Spätlese’s riper, richer style from late... Read More »
92 points Wine Spectator: "Offers flavors of ripe citrus, smoked apple, pear tart and pineapple that are rich and lush. Well-spiced, this is loaded with creamy notes that linger effortlessly, leading to dried ginger hints on the finish. Drink now through 2018." (3/2014)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very aromatic on the nose, the 2014 Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland Riesling Trocken Hinterhaus displays intense, dense white stone fruit aromas underlined by a refreshing lemon perfume. Very elegant and intense on the palate, this is a full-bodied, powerful and very salty wine. It is very elegant, balanced and reveals a long complex finish with a persistent salinity. Great aging potential." (12/2015)
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The bright citrus-colored 2015 Kiedrich Riesling Trocken has a very concentrated, but again reductive and aromatically discreet nose, with a good mineral background. Medium to full-bodied, piquant and salty on the palate, this is a dense and pretty expressive Riesling with a ripe and concentrated, almost lush fruit texture. The finish is compact and well structured, indicating an excellent ageing potential. (SR)" (10/2016) Jancis Robinson: "Fascinating composition of citrus fruit and green herbs on the nose. The palate continues on the same theme with the flavour of juicy g ...Read More »
