Critical Acclaim

SP92 Wine Spectator Web only – 2014

"There’s a crisp edge to the fennel, green apple and minerally flavors, supported by concentrated acidity. Features lemon drop notes midpalate, with a laserlike focus to the marmalade accents on the finish. Drink now through 2042." (92 pts.)

VN92 Vinous Mar 2015

"Bright aromas of fresh apple, star fruit and nut oils. Densely packed but showing enormous verve and even an element of delicacy to its papaya flavor, this Riesling is kept alive by its brisk acidity. The clear, refreshing slate character on the long, spicy finish make this the estate’s finest Spätlese of the vintage." (92 pts.)

WE91 Wine Enthusiast 8/1/2015

"Zesty and lean, this exquisitely fine-framed Riesling builds in intensity. It’s mineral and spry from start to finish, but juicy-sweet tangerine and honey notes add brightness and sunshine to the midpalate. It’s enjoyable now, but likely to intensify through 2025." (91 pts.)

Germany

The German wine-making tradition is long and illustrious, dating back to as early as AD 800. And for a country just slightly smaller than Montana, Germany produces and consumes a great deal of wine (it's the seventh-largest producer and sixth-highest consumer).

Germany is situated at the most northerly latitude at which grapes can ripen; the winters are cold and the growing season short, all of which, incidentally, are nearly identical to the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Most of its wine regions are situated in central and southwestern Germany. The most significant are the Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Rheinpfalz, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Nahe, Franken and Baden.

The Riesling grape is king in Germany, even though it represents only 20% of total plantings: Müller-Thurgau (a Riesling-silvaner cross) has the most, followed by the red grapes Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Dornfelder. In good years and in the care of master winemakers, Riesling makes one of the greatest white wines in the world, with a perfect balance of sugar and acid, exquisite fruit and fragrance and with considerable potential for aging.
