2019 Dry Riesling (Konstantin Frank, Dr.)

Dr. Konstantin Frank, Dry Riesling, Finger Lakes, NY 2019

{organic} 100% Riesling

ZESTY LEMON, BRIGHT BLOSSOMS, SLATEY & CLEAN

The name Konstantin Frank is law in the Finger Lakes region, and his eponymous winery is still the apotheosis of quality vinifera on the east coast. This is a classic old-world-style dry riesling bursting with bright citrus (and citrus peel) flavors and bouyant blossomy aromas. But it's the squeaky clean finish that is truly the star here, a thread of acidity and minerality that elevates the wine from "refreshing" to "ethereal."

Serving Suggestion: Whole grilled trout with lemon and sea salt, alongside buttered sourdough and a medley of summer greens.

2016 Niersteiner Hipping Riesling Spätlese (Schneider, Georg Albrecht)

Georg Albrecht Schneider, Niersteiner Hipping Riesling Spätlese, Rheinhessen, Germany 2016

100% Riesling

ZESTY LIME & PINEAPPLE, MAGNIFICENT MINERALITY

Whatever the time of year, when we taste the zesty combination of bright citrus and restrained tropicality – the graceful contrast of mouthwatering acidity and gentle sweetness that punctuates the profile of classic Rheinhessen Spätlese, we immediately want to hit the slopes… The famously red slope of Nierstein, to be precise. Like a wintery piña colada that hasn't had any irritating songs written about it, this perennially refreshing white could bring a kiss of healthy chill to a summer evening or pair spectacularly with traditional Thanksgiving/holiday fare.

Serving Suggestion: Pineapple-baked ham w/ crisp, steamed string beans. Papaya salad w/ fish sauce & coconut rice.

2018 Riesling "Oppenheimer" Kabinett (Dr. Heyden)

Dr. Heyden, Riesling Kabinett, Oppenheimer, Rheinhessen, Germany, 2017

BRILLIANT CITRUS, TANGY & TINGLY, SLIGHTLY OFF-DRY

When Karl Heyden’s son, Frank, took over winemaking at the family estate, he went to work catapulting quality to new heights. With a deep commitment to sustainable agriculture, the Heyden family is a leader not only in quality but environmental friendliness as well. With inspired balance, lemony-limeish citrus, and glimmering minerality shining through, it's a true head turner!

Serving Suggestions: This wine plays well with powerful, pungent flavors. Stuffed cabbage with tomatoes and nutmeg is a natural. Strong, aged goat cheeses make for heavenly pairings.

2018 Riesling Alsace (Baur, Charles)

Charles Baur, Riesling, Alsace, France 2018

{organic} 100% Riesling

LEMON & GREEN APPLE, FLINTY & DELICATELY BLOSSOMY AROMAS

Alsatian Riesling not only occupies an especially lofty place in the hearts of seasoned enthusiasts of both the variety and the region, but it often represents a kind of Riesling-er-rific gateway drug or electrifyingly zesty tidal pool whose distinctive aromas and typically distinctive lack of residual sugar converts many Riesling skeptics into true believers. This example from Charles Baur delivers that classic clarity, intensity of tangy fruit, and ethereal perfume combining white flowers and flint.

Serving Suggestion: Creamy, washed-rind cheeses. Beef & lamb shawarma w/ tangy tzatziki & tahini sauces.

2019 Riesling Dry ''Magnus'' (Staffelter Hof, Weingut)

Weingut Staffelter Hof, Riesling Dry "Magnus", Mosel, Germany 2019

{organic} 100% Riesling

TART PINEAPPLE & ZESTY LIME, CLEAN SLATE, ANGULAR ACIDITY

With no residual sugar to be found, this driest offering among the “Wolf Wines” from Staffelter Hof teams with the signature tropical citrus and minerality of modern Mosel offerings and does so enticingly and accessibly. Named “Magnus” for a helpful wolf who lived a millennium ago and helped the ancestors of Staffelter Hof when they found themselves with no beast of burden to help ferry stones around (for some reason). Appropriate for a wine whose vibrant glimmer makes us want to howl at the moon!

Serving Suggestion: Smoked haddock & poached egg salad w/ watercress, spinach, lemon juice, & mustard. Washed rind cheeses of relatively gentle intensity.

2016 Riesling Eiswein "Krov Paradies" [375ml] (Staffelter Hof, Weingut)

Weingut Staffelter Hof, Riesling Eiswein "Krov Paradies", [375ml] Mosel, Germany 2016

{organic} 100% Riesling

TROPICALICIOUS ADVENTURE DOWN A RIVER OF WARM HONEY

Meet eiswein: a rare dessert wine made from grapes that froze on the vine, were picked on that same cold winter night, and pressed while frozen, yielding a few drops each of rich, concentrated juice. The resulting wine is nothing short of magical: unctuous, heady with tropical fruit and citrus peel, ripe peach, juicy pear, and fresh-cut honeycomb. All the summery sweetness is tempered by blindingly bright acidity, cleansing the palate and getting you ready for more. Brace yourselves.

Serving Suggestion: Liverwurst spread thin on dark rye bread. Cinnamon- and nutmeg-spiced apple tart, topped w/ creme brulee. Sipped slowly beside a fire, on a winter night so clear that you can almost see by starlight.

2017 Riesling Feinherb Kabinett ''Kroc Letterlay'' (Staffelter Hof, Weingut)

Weingut Staffelter Hof, Riesling Feinherb Kabinett "Krov Letterlay", Mosel, Germany 2017

{organic} 100% Riesling

KIWI & KEY LIME, GRANNY SMITH, RIPE YET RAZORY

Germany’s Mosel, while probably not the precise origin of the Riesling grape, is practically a prism that focuses the variety’s unremitting personality into its most distinctively defined, dictionary-worthy depictions. In fact, the razory zenith reached can, at times, be a bit much for some of us, but this offering from “the home of the wolf” and the estate’s Klein family beautifully tempers that fierce freshness with ripe, round citrus, and a kiss of sweetness.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled salmon w/ spicy watermelon gazpacho. Simi-soft sheep’s milk cheeses.

{biodynamic} 100% Riesling

LEMON & PINEAPPLE, GINGER, SLATE & FLINT, UBER-ERFRISCHEND, JA!

It might not be fair to outright assert that Mosel Rieslings represent the absolute epitome of the grape’s signature combination of intense terroir and unremitting tropical citrus, but the region is certainly a contender for Riesling “world capital” status. The wines ain’t cheap, but the quality is reliably very high. The Melsheimer estate crafts this cuvée from grapes grown in its prized vineyards, striving for exceptional balance. The hand-crafted moniker is well deserved here. Delicious and tremendously complex!

Serving Suggestion: Japanese squid salad w/ sesame, cucumbers, & pickled plum. Hawaiian pizza w/ tomato, garlic, & pineapple (ham optional).

Christoph Edelbauer, Riesling Reserve, Kamptal, Austria 2017 {organic} 100% Riesling

ROBUST LEMON & LIME, RACY YET ROUND, SEDUCTIVE

"Slatey, full of stone fruit! Soft, with corners and edges!" Almost serving as a counterpoint to the famously firm and assertively acidic wines of Austria's Wachau, this impressive selection from Christoph Edelbauer presents an outstandingly opulent rendition of Riesling. One of the most full-bodied examples of the variety you're liable to encounter, it manages to combine the zesty citric zeal and proclivity for mineral complexity with a more mouth-filling voluptuousness.

Serving suggestion: Savory Szechuan salt & pepper squid w/ crispy-roasted green beans. Tempura squash & shiitakes w/ ponzu dipping sauce.

2017 Riesling Smaragd "Kellerberg" (Tegernseerhof)

Tegernseerhof, Riesling "Kellerberg", Wachau, Austria 2017 {sustainable} 100% Riesling

CONCENTRATED LEMON & GREEN APPLE, MEGALITHIC MINERALITY

True to its name, the Kellerberg is indeed a mountain whose vinous denizens are destined for the cellar (and are often capable of aging gracefully for aeons). The grandest of what might be considered Austria’s grand crus, this steeply sloping corner of the Wachau isn’t only prized by Austrians but is indisputably one of Riesling’s world capitals and a World Heritage Site. This spectacular specimen of Riesling is bone dry, blazingly acidic, resoundingly ripe, and built around a rock-solid core of mineralistic complexity.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled squid w/ lemon-caper sauce & asparagus. Tempura green beans & sweet yellow onions w/ aioli.

LUSH GREEN APPLE, PEACH & APRICOT. DRY & FULL

Jobst-Julius (trying saying that five times fast) Karp of Karp-Schreiber is clearly no fish out of water when it comes to crafting a masterful dry Riesling. Here he captures the rich essence of the grape, all while bringing out its own unique ensemble of flavors. The symphony begins presenting notes of green apple and lime, then reels you in and crescendos with an incredibly lush movement of stone fruits and honey.

Serving Suggestion: Lightly spiced Japanese curry w/ jade rice. Halibut w/ orange-miso sauce & fennel salad.

Intense, modern, and uncompromisingly expressive of the gorgeous Rheinhessen terroir, the Kammerton (named for the “chamber tone” pitch of the Baroque period,) more than meets the lofty expectations of clarity and finesse previously set by the estate. Alexander Gysler embraced biodynamic farming early on, ushering in a new era of consistent quality and vintage-by-vintage individuality and diversity. “Perfection” and “life” seldom intersect, but you’ll find this dry Riesling right there when they do.

Serving Suggestion: Tuna cakes w/ water chestnut, coriander, ginger, & chipotle-lemon aioli. Cheddar-garlic smashed sweet potato w/ lemon-basil chickpea & parsley salad.

2019 Riesling Trocken "Sandstein" (Gysler, Alexander)

Alexander Gysler, Riesling Trocken "Sandstein", Rheinhessen, Germany 2019

{biodynamic} 100% Riesling

LIME & APRICOT, PRONOUNCED MINERALITY, CHISELED & SEXY

“Sandstein,” unsurprisingly refers to the sandstone vineyard site that the vines responsible for this cuvée call home. If judging a book by its cover is a bad idea, then choosing a wine by its label is similarly unwise. Yet here is a wine whose label actually does speak volumes aesthetically. Alexander Gysler proudly “strives for less,” and the minimalism, elegance, and utopian purity of his wines are almost architectural, tangible elements on the tongue. This offering perfectly encapsulates the essence of contemporary, dry Rheinhessen Riesling – robustly ripe yet enticingly acidic, agile, and angular. 

Serving Suggestion: Lightly smoked trout w/ capers & spaghetti squash w/ lemon, garlic, & butter. "Country brunch” w/ hickory bacon, poached eggs, & citrusy asparagus / tomato salad.

2016 Riesling Trocken "Vom Kalk" (Schneider, Georg Albrecht)

Georg Albrecht Schneider, Riesling Trocken "Vom Kalk", Rheinhessen, Germany 2016

TANGY WHITE PEACH & ZESTY LIME, CHALKY MINERAL, ORANGE BLOSSOM

Clinging to the steep, stoney, iron-rich inclines of Nierstein's Red Slope, the vineyards of Georg Albrecht Schneider indeed occupy a precious vantage point overlooking the Rhein. The family ownership of these 37 acres can be traced back seven generations, and yet the reputation surrounding the wines stems as much from their current excellence and exuberant character as it does from notions of historical significance. Shimmeringly bright acidity and wholesomely healthy fruit invigorates our palates while tantalizing aromas and a pristine finish leaves smiles on our faces. Fantastisch!

2017 Riesling Weinviertel ''De Vite'' (Minkowitsch, Roland)

Ronald Minkowitsch, Riesling "De Vite", Weinviertel, Austria 2017

{organic} 100% Riesling

LEMON & GOLDEN APPLE, LIQUID MINERAL ELEGANCE, RACY & RIPE

From the far northeastern reaches of Austria, the sprawling Weinviertel region, this generous dry Riesling balances characteristic brightness with a, perhaps, somewhat unexpected impression of roundness & juiciness (maybe courtesy, in part, of the 50 year-old vines employed) given these climes’ reputation for leaner, more herbaceous stylings. The label sports the distinction “Rheinriesling,” but don’t be confused as this term is helpful here and in Czecchia’s Moravia to the north to distinguish from the unrelated Croatian native, Welschriesling, whose presence is significant in this part of Austria.

Serving Suggestion: Crisp-skinned, panfried trout w/ parsley, lemon, butter, & potato salad w/ dill & sour cream. Thick, hearty butternut squash soup w/ cream cheese, marjoram, cinnamon, & cayenne.

2020 Riesling, Kabinett "Trittenheimer Apotheke" (Bollig-Lehnert)

Bollig-Lehnert, Riesling Kabinett "Trittenheimer Apotheke", Mosel, Germany 2020

100% Riesling

BAKED APPLE, JUICY LIME, FLORAL, LIGHTLY SWEET

Stefan Bollig is an old friend of ours who makes his lovely Mosel Valley Rieslings in the traditional style: juicy, lightly sweet, greatly rich and layered with complex flavors of apples, citrus, and petrol. Through the front window of his winery/home climbs the steep, slatey Goldtropschen hillside he farms just across the street, so close he can hear birds chirping on the vines from his front yard. Although this riesling is touched with a hint of sweetness, it has enough mouth-watering acidity to reach a perfect balance. Delicious!

Serving Suggestion: Smoked salmon with potato leek soup as we had in Stefan's kitchen.
