Bollig-Lehnert Trittenheimer Apotheke, R Kabinett 2007, Mosel, Germany
Astounding for the price, hits all the marks you expect in a Riesling—lush fruit, hints of petrol, and a crisp mineral-laden finish.
Clean Slate Riesling, Mosel, Germany
Powerful, focused, sings to the heavens, glorious harmony of sweet and crisp fruit flavours.
Note: this is a non-vintage wine.
Domaines Schlumberger Riesling, Les Princes Abbes 2007, Alsace
Soft minerality and a tad off-dry.
Graf Hardegg R, Von Schloss 2008, Austria
A surprisingly delicate and gentle Austrian Riesling, hints of real minerality.
Grove Mill Riesling 2008 New Zealand
Unusually layered and nuanced for the modest price.
