  1. 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.

  2. Dr Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 2016 375mL
    Dr Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 2016 375mL
    Still very youthful and unready, but packed with flavour. Beautiful fruit and silky acidity. This is a raw diamond. Drink from 2018 to 2050. (95) STUART PIGOTT, jamessuckling.com

    Fresh apple, quince preserves and vanilla cream mingle on the nose and the creamy, buoyant palate. Honeysuckle and heliotrope lend seductive inner-mouth perfume. This finishes with a lovely sense of lift and with just enough primary juiciness to remain animating. DAVID SCHILDKNECHT, Vinous Media

  3. 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

  4. Selbach Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese* 2016
    Selbach Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese* 2016

    The 2016 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese * offers an incredible, gorgeously fine bouquet of weathered slate and perfectly ripe, healthy Riesling berries with just a touch of honey. On the palate, this is a highly finessed and piquant Riesling with great elegance and exotic fruit aromas. The finish is long, piquant and precise, well-structured and firm, but at the same time, it tickles the palate like wine from no other vineyard can do. What an impressive wine! (95) STEPHAN REINHARDT, Wine Advocate

  5. Von Buhl Forster Pechstein Riesling Trocken GG 2016
    Von Buhl Forster Pechstein Riesling Trocken GG 2016

    Penetratingly pungent and high-toned aromas of peppermint, boxwood and lemon zest cover over any aromatic influence there might be from a relatively new Austrian cask. The feel here is polished and strikingly waxy. Alkaline and saline notes serve for enhanced invigoration and saliva-inducement on a resonant and rich yet refreshingly bright finish. Last tasted from cask shortly before an August 2017 bottling, this wine will have a lot more to say given a bit of time. DAVID SCHILDKNECHT, vinous
