Brand 2019 Pfalz Pet Nat Blanc 1.5 L

Daniel and Jonas Brand are fifth-generation wine makers in the northern Pfalz, currently with 18 hectares in the family. Soil types in the northern Pfalz range from clay and loam, to loess, and limestone at different states of erosion. For a region that gets most of their rain in winter, the soil plays a vital role in holding water for the vines. They began experimenting with converting their vineyards to organic farming in 2011 and are now fully-certified since the 2018 vintage. Their Pét-Nat Blanc is made from 30-year-old vines of Silvaner and Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc) grown on scant soil over limestone.  -CB

Breuer, George 2019 Rauenthal Estate Riesling Trocken

Bottled under screw cap. The palate is a very pale yellow with greenish flecks. Aromatically unrevealing verging on dumb upon opening. With air the nose reveal pretty aromas of white peach, Mirabelle plum, be pollen and herbs. The palate is a touch more expansive that of the Rudesheim Estate bottling, with a bit more gras, but slightly less tension. Notwithstanding, flavors of stone fruit, citrus peel, wet rock, and green tea dominate with notes of malt, pollen, and peach skin making up the balance of the profile. This is a touch more overtly ripe with a  suspicion of sweetness cloaking the salty, vibrant core of stone within. This is by no means flabby, but one does get the sense that with time in the cellar for the ripeness to integrate with the structure, this could really over-perform its class. A fine pairing with risotto with yellow peppers and green beans. Lovely bottle with plenty of charm and an excellent upside. John McIlwain

Breuer, George 2019 Rüdesheim Estate Riesling Trocken

Bottled under screw cap. The wine has a pale-yellow green robe. Upon opening the nose is a bit reticent and shows a touch of reduction. Aromas of citrus oil, apricot, and Rainier cherry with wisps of mineral smoke and crushed herbs emerge with air. The palate is lithe and racy with a juicy, piquant, medium-length finish with just enough salty sea breeze elements to shade this to the savory side of the flavor spectrum. A bonny companion to a cucumber salad with smoked salmon and an herb-mustard dressing. This is excellent currently, but should benefit from another couple of years in the cellar. Lovely juice!

Busch, Clemens 2019 Mosel Pündericher Marienburg Riesling Grosses Gewächs

The Marienburg GG comes an all from gray slate parcel. Fermented with native yeast. Aged in fuder, bottled with low sulfur. The 2019 Clemens Busch Pündericher Marienburg Riesling Großes Gewächs has a pale green-yellow robe. The nose offers an attractive array of wild flower and red fruit aromas, with hints of orange oil, ginger, and wet slate. The palate is concentrated and coiled, with ripe orchard fruit entwines with a firm mineral core on a long, persistent finish. This is only showing nascent complexity, but is showing great promise and should really begin strutting its stuff with another 3-5 years in the bottle and beyond. John McIlwain

Fricke, Eva 2020 Rheingau Riesling Trocken

The Eva Fricke 2020 Rheingau Riesling Trocken has a pale green pale yellow robe. Bottled under screw cap, this shows some reduction and a hint of spritz upon opening, which blows off to reveal aromas pretty aromas of lime skin, white flowers, and stone on the nose. Flavors of grapefruit peel, apple, and salt on the palate with racing acidity and ripeness following. Good depth and incisive stoniness on medium length finish. Harmonious and energetic. Very good.

Gernot's parcel of the Ellergrub is 2.2 hectares of ungrafted vines, over 80 years old. Farming is organic, fermentation is spontaneous, and the wine ages in a neutral oak barrels. In a shocking twist, the 2016 Ellergrub is slightly off-dry! The wine boasts a floral elegance and herbal freshness on the nose, yet is still quite dense and rich, with notes of yellow apricot, roses, and white peach skin giving way to a touch of citrus zest and strawberries on the finish.

Loewen, Carl 2018 Mosel Riesling Thörnich Ritsch Auslese

A fantastic Auslese from a warmer vintage: subtle and elegant nose of herbs and ripe citrus with no botrytis, the palate is layered and fresh, stone fruit and deep minerality with lemon candy and delicate florals. A bottle to cellar for at least ten years to begin to see the balance and intricacy of this wine. Cari Bernard

Meyer, Stefan 2019 Pfalz Riesling Trocken 1L

Hailing from the Pfalz, Germany directly north of Alsace, this is a trocken (dry) riesling of brilliant purity! Immediate aromas of petrol, kefir lime, white peach and wet rocks blast the nose. On the palate, flavors of limeade and  peach nectar burst with vivid acidity and minerality. Sporting a long, dry yet juicy finish, this is a super refreshing , classic riesling perfect for end of summer pleasure. I'd serve it with grilled swordfish and a veggie medley of zucchini, cherry tomatoes, cipolline onions with a balsamic glaze (last night's dinner pairing!) or a spicy Thai seafood curry.  Giselle Hamburg

Weiser-Künstler 2020 Mosel Riesling Trarbacher Schlossberg Kabinett

Pale green/yellow robe. A bit on dissolved CO2. Touch of reduction (more than sponti), but a brisk decant and this blows off. The nose offers cool toned aromas of lime zest, lemon blossom, cool herbs—is that fennel?— and sea spray. The palate shows a bit of the ripeness of the vintage, not screaming with acidity, but a bit of dry extract that takes a minute (or 20) to settle in before a punchy mineral/salty core reveals itself. On the palate there’s plenty of white fruit and a faint nectar-ish sweetness, but there’s a sapid bitterness that Champagne grower Olivier Horiot terms mineral expression in Riceys, rather than acidity, which seems apt in the the glass. And while this doesn’t display leanness of cooler vintages, it comes off as “complete.” If one were to insist upon a vintage comparison in recent-ish memory, 2005 comes to mind. It was a year that didn’t struggle for ripeness, but seemed a bit fleshy relative to the tangy 2004s. That said, anyone who has opened a 2005 recently, can probably affirm there is beautiful balance between ripeness and terroir expression on the wines currently and I can’t imagine they’re looking to unload any bottles they’re holding. There’s real depth here and this is deeply satisfying with a salad of smoked salmon and cucumbers with an herb mustard crème fraîche dressing. John McIlwain
