  1. Gunderloch Fritz Riesling 2020
    Gunderloch Fritz Riesling 2020

    How do they do it? This has been a PWS favourite for some time now and it never fails to deliver. Made by Rheinhessen legends Gunderloch with vineyards  close to the Rhines south-east steep slopes. The combination of the red slate soil, the proximity to the river, the exposure to the sun and the steepness of the vineyards - are perfect for producing wonderful ripeness. If you are a German riesling fan it would be hard to beat this for the sheer quality and insane value it represents.

    The wine shows lovely stone fruit, peach and pithy characters as it opens in the glass. There is a salty mineral hit to that is really lovely. The fresh natural acidity zip through the ripe and spice flecked palate while a little aromatic lift gives this some real interest. Dry, fresh and full of character. PWS

  2. Georg Breuer Rudesheim Estate Riesling 2016
    Georg Breuer Rudesheim Estate Riesling 2016
    The 2016 Rheingau Riesling Rüdesheim "Estate" is super clear, bright and elegant on the nose, with lovely stony-mineral notes, almost stone dust but also beautiful concentration. On the palate, this is a round, juicy, very fruity but clear, piquant, well-structured and finely mineral Rheingau classic at 11.5% alcohol. It drinks perfectly today and will also do so over the next 15 to 20 years. Sweetness and acidity are in perfect balance here (8.4 grams per litre). A highly filigreed and delicate Riesling.

  3. Wittmann  Estate Riesling 2020
    Wittmann Estate Riesling 2020
    Wonderful peach, melon and floral nose. Concentrated, racy and filigree with intense, chalky minerality at the long, polished and playful finish. STUART PIGOTT, jamessuckling.com

    Gorgeously juicy little number that delivers ample punch and intensity as it races across the palate. So primary and full of life right now that it's a joy to drink at this early stage. Pithy, grippy, mineral and enlivening, this is yet another exemplary estate Riesling from the master. As completely delicious as it is now I would like to see it in a decade or so, but opening one now, or in fact at any time in its evolution, won't be a shame. Ripping wine. ROSCOE

  4. Gunderloch Rothenberg Riesling Auslese 2016 375mL
    Gunderloch Rothenberg Riesling Auslese 2016 375mL
    Lush and exotic in the nose, but oh so racy and brilliant on the palate, this is a stunning Auslese with a mineral finish that is filigree and intense. Best from 2018 through 2040. (95) STUART PIGOTT, jamessuckling.com

    Made from grapes with 30/40% botrytised berries, the 2016 Rothenberg Riesling Auslese has a clear citrus colour and opens with a bright, fresh and concentrated bouquet of grapefruits, lemons and wet stones. Round and deliciously lush on the palate, this is a mouth-filling, highly elegant, piquant and salty Auslese with nice grip, grapefruit flavors on the aftertaste and pencil wood on the finish. Really stimulating. Very erotic and provided with great aging potential. (Roughly 100 grams of residual sugar.) (94) STEPHAN REINHARDT, The Wine Advocate

  5. Wagner Stempel Hollberg GG Riesling 2020
    Wagner Stempel Hollberg GG Riesling 2020
    What a stunning nose of ripe white and yellow peach, pineapple and grapefruit with a slew of spicy and herbal notes! But that barely prepares you for the breathtaking interplay of super-mineral acidity and the spectacular fruit. All of this is underlined by wonderful salinity that makes this riesling GG almost supernaturally refreshing. So uplifting at the precise and vibrant finish! From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. 97 points JAMES SUCKLING, jamessuckling.com

  6. Wagner Stempel Heerkretz GG Riesling 2020
    Wagner Stempel Heerkretz GG Riesling 2020
    This is so delightful in the nose, but there are so many dimensions to the aromas that it's not easy to grasp this, without sinking into this enormously complex wine. The aromas range from leaves and flowers, dripping after a tropical downpour, to ripe stone fruit, all the shades of citrus zest and delicate spice Tightly wound on the very concentrated, silky palate with minerality that's almost off the scale. So saline and so mouthwatering at the super-long finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. 98 points JAMES SUCKLING, jamessuckling.com
