  1. Egon Muller Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Auslese 2015
    Egon Muller Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Auslese 2015
    It's hard to single out individual aromas from this complex fragrance. The nose invites to explore the many facets of fine fresh fruit, subtle nuances of spice and minerality and a gentle floral notion which all add to an extraordinary sensory experience. On the palate the Braune Kupp excels with a delightful interaction of vibrant acidity and delicious residual sweetness, putting grace and finesse above overwhelming opulence. An Auslese as racy as only the Saar can produce. 18.5 JANCIS ROBINSON MW

  2. Egon Muller Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Kabinett 2018
    Egon Muller Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Kabinett 2018
    Purple plum is laced with mint on the nose, and those two elements serve for a succulent and subtly cooling effect on the glossy, polished palate. Tangy plum skin, piquant plum pit and a hint of seedy red raspberry serve for invigoration critical to pushing back against unusually high residual sugar, but without diminishing the sense of richness that is engendered on first sip. “I believe some casks would have benefited from fermenting a bit further,” noted Müller, but the fermentations simply petered out. As a result – though, naturally, must weights in the low 90s are also contributory – nearly 60 grams of residual sugar remain in the finished wine. The impressively sustained finish is amply refreshing as well as transparent to smoky and stony nuances. DAVID SCHILDKNECHT, Vinous

  3. Zind Humbrecht Riesling Roche Roulee 2020
    Zind Humbrecht Riesling Roche Roulee 2020
    This used to be bottled as the single vineyard Herrenweg and comes from the famous village of Turckheim.
    Pale straw yellow colour. The nose is bright and reveals a beautiful panoply of fruity aromas as well as lime blossom. This early character and already quite open style is also found on the palate. The loamy-gravelly terroir of Turckheim produces expressive wines in their youth and the sunny climate of 2020 will have built a charming, expressive and intense wine. The attack on the palate is supple, caressing but firms up on the finish, revealing a ripe and structuring acidity. Beautiful saline finish that lingers on with an attractive fruity profile. Although already very expressive, this wine will age well. OLIVIER HUMBRECHT MW

    Effusive citrus and floral aromas with too many nuances to list. Leaps and bounds over the very juicy palate, which splash-lands in a very bright and zesty finish. From mature vines in the mostly alluvial Herrenweg vineyard of Turckheim. STUART PIGGOT, jamessuckling.com

  4. Robert Weil Kiedrich Grafenberg Riesling Auslese 2020
    Robert Weil Kiedrich Grafenberg Riesling Auslese 2020
    The 2020 Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling Auslese is impressively deep, precise and refined on the nose, with fine slate and highly precise fruit aromas. Round and lush on the palate, with crystalline acidity and highly stimulating salinity, this is a dense, gorgeously piquant and mouth-filling Auslese with remarkable precision, grip and salinity on the finish. 8.5% alcohol. 97 STEPHAN REINHARDT, wineadvocate.com

  5. Eva Fricke Rheingau Riesling Krone Trocken 2020
    Eva Fricke Rheingau Riesling Krone Trocken 2020
    Anyone who doubts the greatness of the best wines from the 2020 vintage in Germany should taste this extremely complex and pristine dry riesling. Enormous minerality and structure, in spite of only being medium-bodied. So finely nuanced. Very long finish, in which slatey and chalky elements are beautifully interwoven with the white-peach and Amalfi-lemon aromas. Enormous aging potential. From organically grown grapes. JAMES SUCKLING, jamessuckling.com

    ...opens with an intense and complex, very elegant and chalky-fresh bouquet of perfectly ripe Riesling grapes. Lush and silky as well as crystalline on the palate, this is a dense, very complex, finessed and grippy-mineral Krone with a firm, persistently salty and mineral finish. This is an impressive dry Riesling from predominantly 60- to 70+-year-old vines rooting deep in slate soils covering limestone sub-soils. Drink it from a Burgundy glass, in which the wine sits like an open book revealing all about Riesling, chalk and slate. A gorgeous wine with very fine tannins, lingering salinity and dense and juicy, lemony fruit. STEPHAN REINHARDT, wineadvocate.com

  6. Egon Muller Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett 2020
    Egon Muller Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett 2020
    There’s a bit of mountain stream in the fragrance of the Scharzhofberger Kabinett, but the primary aromas come from local orchards and citrus-fruit groves. Don’t expect an exuberance of sweet temptation on the palate, as zest and spice play at least as significant a role as residual sugar. But what makes the Scharzhofberger so unique is not the fruit, but the zest and spice it is delivered with. It’s still taut at this early stage, not so much a ‘come hither’ but a ‘come up and see me sometime’ Kabinett. MICHAEL SCHMIDT, Jancis Robinson

  7. Frankland Estate Smith Cullam Riesling 2021
    Frankland Estate Smith Cullam Riesling 2021
    The Isolation Ridge vineyard at Frankland Estate is now farmed using organic viticultural practices resulting in greater depth and concentration to our wines. The vineyard sits on an undulating northern and eastern facing slope on ancient duplex soils of gravel and loam over a clay sub-soil. Fruit for this wine was sourced from Geisenheim clone Riesling vines planted in 1988. This clone is renowned for retaining high levels of acidity throughout the vintage, this providing a natural counterbalance to the residual sweetness in this wine.

    Handpicked when ripe in the early morning and whole-bunch pressed for fermentation in 1000 litre French oak ‘foudre’ over 4 weeks. Towards the end of fermentation, when the ideal balance of sugar, fruit weight and acidity had been achieved, the wine was chilled to arrest fermentation. FRANKLAND ESTATE

  8. Hesket Chardonnay 2021
    Hesket Chardonnay 2021
    Delightfully fresh and focused, with a faintly floral fragrance of lemon, grapefruit and creamy vanilla/bubblegum oak backed by a hint of spice. Initially round and juicy, its intense citrus flavour moves with poise and style down a lean, refined palate before finishing with tautness and brittleness. While it will certainly flesh out remarkably, leaving most cool-climate Australian chardonnay appearing stripped and shy by comparison, it will retain its signature focus and acidity, none of which I would add, is actually added. JEREMY OLIVER

  9. Hiedler Zobing Ried Heiligenstein 1ÖTW Riesling 2020
    Hiedler Zobing Ried Heiligenstein 1ÖTW Riesling 2020

    The 2020 Zöbing Ried Heiligenstein 1ÖTW Riesling is clear and crystalline on the nose yet initially rather discreet in its fruit expression. Intense, ripe apricot aromas emerge form the glass after a while. Crystalline, refined and elegant on the palate this, is a powerful, tight and firmly structured Heiligenstein that is still a bit caged and needs aeration or years to open up, refine and shine. The fruit is stewed and the texture accordingly rich and fleshy, whereas the finish remains crystalline, piquant and precise. This should be another gorgeous Heiligenstein in 10 years but in the Hiedler style. STEPHAN RHEINHARDT, vinous.com

  10. Schmolzer & Brown Pret A Blanc 2022
    Schmolzer & Brown Pret A Blanc 2022

    And the kitchen sink… pinot gris, sauvignon blanc, riesling and sylvaner from King Valley all blended up nice ‘n’ pretty. Judiciously, I bet too.

    Texture and freshness, summery feel and high drinkability. Kicking goals. It’s in that vein of pleasing, Schweppers Bitter Lemon soft drink territory, a gently fruitiness, sweetness, dryness, bitterness, all just so and very vibrant and refreshing. A bit of alpine herbiness in the mix too. Squeaky textured and mouth-watering as to finish. Ripper drink. MIKE BENNIE, Wine Front

     

    They say it’s based on the Austrian Gemischter Satz style of field blended dry white wine… cool.

    Tangy, fresh, lively with wafts of the exotic, something that reminds me a little of a wet season evening in our place in Darwin, it’s that mix of petrichor and tropical flowers like wild ginger and lemongrass. Really quite a lot going on aromatically as the parts vie for prime position. Some stone/pome fruit and herbal elements as well. Keeps you excited. The palate is sizzling, so tasty, with a burst of fruitfulness that tilts its head towards texturally rich while remaining oh so bright and clear. Really long. Thirst slacking stuff but also makes you want to drink more. I can tell you for experience this is not a one glass kind of wine. I would love to see how it evolves in the bottle but, as I mentioned earlier, I am already out of stock in my stash. Great stuff. Drinking it will make you a happier person. It couldn’t be any more joyful if the Dalai Lama himself had made it using the tears of unicorns and fermented it in gold encrusted tanks lined with rubies found at the end of a rainbow ?? ROSCOE

  11. Jim Barry Florita Riesling 2015 Museum Release
    Jim Barry Florita Riesling 2015 Museum Release
    Released after 6 years in bottle, and you can totally understand, when you drink this, why this is a wise move. This is gloriously toasty: yellow flowers (there's a buttercup vibe through the finish), hinoki, Golden Delicious apples, preserved lemons, yellow peach, pulverised quartz, saline acidity and a creamy undercurrent of crushed nuts. This is verging on sublime. Or perhaps it just is. ERIN LARKIN, James Halliday

  12. Pewsey Vale Contours Riesling 2016 Cellar Release
    Pewsey Vale Contours Riesling 2016 Cellar Release
    So vibrant for it’s age, this has great concentration of candied-lime and grapefruit-zest character. Terrific structure and energy on the driving palate, but all of this is wrapped in rich citrus fruit to create stunningly complete harmony. Very long and compact finish that suggests this has at least a further decade of aging potential. JAMES SUCKLING

    Pale colour. Classic developed lime, toasty aromas and flavours with hints of oilskin and sage. The palate is superbly balanced and in clockwork condition with attractive fruit complexity, underlying minerally notes, fine lacy textures, very good mid-palate viscosity and fine linear fresh acidity. A touch al-dente at the finish. A beautiful example of Eden Valley Riesling showing the fidelity of vineyard site and masterful winemaking. ANDREW CAILLARD

  13. Markus Molitor Riesling Alte Reben (White Cap) 2020
    Markus Molitor Riesling Alte Reben (White Cap) 2020
    The 2020 Riesling Alte Reben Mosel (White Capsule) offers a pure and crystalline slate bouquet with ripe and well-concentrated Riesling fruit. Lush and ripe on the palate, this is a very elegant, fresh and tensioned Riesling with intensely aromatic and sustainable fruit and mineral and tannic grip. A fabulous Riesling again and the best representative of Mosel Riesling you can get at this price. STEPHAN REINHARDT, Wine Advocate

    Very attractive nose of white and yellow peach, as well as some blossom. Ripe and well structured, but also clean and bright, without a jot too much weight or volume. This is a very classic dry Mosel. Long, complete finish with serious mineral complexity. STUART PIGOTT, jamessuckling.com
