2015 Kalinda Riesling Rheingau

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)

2013 Hauth-Kerpen Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett Feinherb Mosel (Previously $22)

This happens to be the cousin and neighbor of Martin Kerpen of Heibert Kerpen - go figure right? Anyway, we were turned on to these wines by a friend who is now importing them in Berkeley, and we thank him for that. These are old style Mosel wines from vintages that were not shy on acid and they have not moved from the cellar where they were born until making their maiden voyage last month and landing here on our welcoming shelves. Hello acidity!!! Do you pine for the days when a zippy, and I mean zippy, Mosel wine would bring your palate and salivary gl... Read More »

2015 Wwe. Dr. H. Thanisch (Müller-Burggraef) Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Kabinett Mosel

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "While initially a bit earthy and savory on the nose, this ethereal kabinett abounds in fruity, floral complexities. Cutting and spry, its sweet, tangy citrus and stone-fruit flavors seem to dance nervously on the palate. It's nuanced and minerally, with a deliciously salty finish. (AI)" 91 points Wine Spectator: "Racy and rich, with concentrated green peach and grapefruit flavors accented by notes of wet stone. Tropical details emerge on the minerally finish alongside hints of smoke. (KM)" (11/2016)

2015 Dr. Pauly Bergweiler Bernkasteler alte Badstube am Doctorberg Riesling Kabinett Mosel

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Perfumed and so pretty, this lively kabinett abounds with aromas and flavors of sweet citrus, pineapple and mango. Lavish lavender and potpourri notes persist from nose to finish, lending elegance to this otherwise juicy fruity wine. The sweet-tart tangerine finish is long and meandering. (AI)" (10/2016)

2015 Leitz "Dragonstone" Riesling Rheingau

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 »

2015 Leitz "Eins Zwei Dry" Rheingau Riesling Trocken (Dry)

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 »

2015 Leitz Rüdesheimer Magdalenenkreuz Riesling Spätlese Rheingau

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 »

2015 Dönnhoff Kreuznacher Krötenpful Riesling Kabinett Nahe

The now-legendary wines of Dönnhoff are fermented on natural yeast, and some are aged in neutral, thick-staved large oak. This slightly off-dry Kabinett comes from a vineyard that, according to importer Skurnik, "is rich in quartzite and gravel for perfect drainage. Krötenpful means 'turtle pond' and is named for the water source in the vineyard."

2015 Leitz Rüdesheimer Riesling Trocken Rheingau

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 »

2014 Markus Molitor Riesling Spatlese "Zeltinger Sonnenuhr" White Capsule (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Riesling Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese (White Capsule) displays ripe and intense yellow apple, as well as concentrated quince and apricot confiture on the nose. Rich and intense, concentrated, sweet and tart on the palate, this is a very elegant yet concentrated, round and fruity Spätlese that develops a stunning purity, finesse and elegance in the stimulatingly salty finish. This is a stunning Riesling with two faces at the moment: the one is ultra-ripe and reveals pink grapes and a bit of good botrytis, the other has the salinity, puri ...Read More »

Lush and salty-piquant on the palate, this is a very elegant, relatively round, smooth-textured Spätlese with a delicate tannin structure and banana flavors in the finish. Still very young, this wine reveals good complexity and tension, and should be cellared for at least another five or seven years, but should age ...Read More »

2015 Ökonomierat Rebholz Riesling Trocken (Dry) Pfalz

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Rebholz's 2015 Riesling Trocken Ökonomierat offers a beautifully clear, pure, intense, mineral and herbal-flavored bouquet, which indicates a real Rebholz character. The wine is light, pure and bone dry, but intense and slightly creamy on the palate. It is also very mineral and salty, and well structured by fine tannins. This is a serious wine for Riesling freaks that do not want to spend too much money for a great wine. (SR)" (8/2016)

2015 Mönchhof Estate Riesling Mosel

The Mönchhof estate dates at least as far back as the 12th century, as evidenced by a document still in the Eymael family's possession, signed by Pope Alexander III, showing the Cloister Himmerod--a Cistercian Abbey--having vineyard holdings in Urzig as early as 1177. And the wines have been popular for a long time, too. At the Chicago World's Fair in 1893, Mönchhof won medals for their wines. These days, the wines reflect the personality of the estate's proprietor Robert Eymael: easy to like, with a sense of style and simple sophistication.

Light to medium-bodied this is quite long and tension-filled Riesling with just a touch of sweetness. (SR)" (12/2015) Vinous: "We’re down to 32 grams of residual sugar here.

2014 Gessinger "Josefsberg Old Vines" Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese ** Mosel

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "While shades of slate and saffron lend complexity and nuance, this semisweet wine is more a showcase of sumptuous yellow peach and pear flavors. Its high-toned acidity and delicate, lacy mouthfeel make it irresistibly gulpable. (ALCI)" (6/2016) Jancis Robinson: "No producer likes to be labelled predictable, but over the years I have come to the conclusion that traditional Spätlese is the Gessingers’ true forte. I enjoy the combination of racy acidity, zesty citrus fruit, tasteful sweetness and slim-line figure, nothing over-elaborate, but a pure pleasure to drink. Not too s ...Read More »

2013 Schloss Vollrads Riesling Kabinett Rheingau

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.

2014 Kerpen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese* (Artist Label) Mosel

90 points Wine & Spirits: "Martin Kerpen marks his best Spätlese with a discreet asterisk on the label; more readily notable is the art that graces it, a fantastical bird reclining in a boat, dining on ripe grapes. The decadence it implies is reflected in the wine. Shy at first, once it’s drunk in some air the tart, limey fruit grows exuberant, peachy in its juicy richness and citrus-bright in its acidity—a virtual call for a party, with plenty of food."

2014 Carl Loewen Leiwener Laurentiuslay Riesling Spätlese Mosel

90 points Vinous: "From a high-altitude 1982 planting whose fruit nonetheless attracted considerable botrytis, this brims with sappy, tart-edged fresh orange, apple, and pear, to which a glossy, glycerol-rich texture offers contrast. There are unobtrusive hints of lanolin and resin from the relatively new cask in which this fermented and matured. The wine’s formidable density and its oily, zesty orange and kumquat cling are, as with other wines in the present collection, coupled with a certain sense of opacity.

2014 Von Hovel Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett Mosel (Saar)

Jancis Robinson: "Green fruits and wild herbs on the nose and still showing a little SO2. Definitely has that same reductive quality on the palate. Pretty tight and clean and needing a little longer in bottle to mesh. (JH)" (6/2015) K&L Notes: Mosel Fine Wine: "This Kabinett offers scents of fresh mint, white peach and orchard fruits. The wine is crisp and clean on the palate, with an almost 'as light as water' feel of airiness. The off-dry side of the slightly tart finish gives this wine great drinking appeal. This rather retrained and backward wine should gain complexity with a few ... Read More »

If you haven't had the wines from this estate you should. They are classy, elegant, and don't try to beat you into submission by being anything they are not. The estate wine from Dr. F. Weins-Prüm is feinherb in style. What does that mean? Basically, it is a wine that is dry, but with just a touch fruitiness to it that makes it an easygoing, quaffable wine for everyday use. This particular one is loaded with crisp apple and ripe peach, with rounded-out minerality and a juicy finish. Before you know it, the bottle will be empty. It's a good wine any time ...

2014 Heinrich Spindler Riesling Trocken (dry) Pfalz

Vinous: "Sourced from gentler, deeper-soiled sites east of Forst, in Ruppertsberg, Friedelsheim and Niederkirchen, this generic bottling is for some reason labeled 'Riesling Trocken Rural' in its home market. Salt-tinged bright citrus and apple are complemented by levity from just under 12% alcohol, leading to a mouthwatering and refreshing if simple and only modestly sustained finish. (Surprisingly, a fuller-bodied village-level Forster Riesling that includes fruit from some top sites and receives some time in cask struck me as less satisfying due to significant ...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)

2015 Stein "Blue Slate" Riesling Trocken (Dry) Mosel

"Hand harvested from old vines in steep vineyards," as proclaimed on the label, this wine is made by Ulrich Stein, an iconoclast in the Mosel who champions old vines and the area's historic, impractically steep viticulture. “Dr. Ulrich Stein is infamous for such lost causes as the reclamation of abandoned, frighteningly steep sites; and battling the entrenched 1971 German Wine Law. It seems, though, that he is more a David than a Don Quixote, because he has won them all.” (David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate)

2014 Spreitzer Winkeler Jesuitengarten Riesling Kabinett Halbtrocken Rheingau

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)

2014 Mönchhof Estate Riesling Mosel

(Feinherb) From the importer: "Grown on all iron-infused Devon Slate, this wine first feels like biting into a ripe white peach, juicy, rich, creamy and sweet, with a full aroma. Yet the wine offers great minerality and acidity to balance the sweetness and make it, well...a delicious joy. Most of the fruit comes from the famous grand cru vineyard site 'Würtzgarten' (spice garden) in the town of Ürzig, which gives the wine its spicy profile."
