  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. Eva Fricke Rheingau Riesling Lorcher Shlossberg Spatlese 2018
    Eva Fricke Rheingau Riesling Lorcher Shlossberg Spatlese 2018

    Compared with the Kiedricher Klosterberg, this smells a little more floral, less pear and more apricot. Sweeter on the palate, luscious but with a fine stony, crisp lemon freshness. Crystalline persistence, so pure. Definitely tastes sweeter than the Kiedricher Klosterberg Spätlese but perfectly balanced by the fresh acidity. (17+) JULIA HARDING MW

    The 2018 Lorcher Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese is coolish, precise and flinty on the more reductive and lime-scented nose than its Klosterberg sibling. Lush yet crystalline and salty-piquant on the palate, this is a generous, enormously lush and super sexy Spätlese with succulent fruit that covers your palate. There are 90 grams of residual sugar, but there is nothing left but gorgeously ripe Riesling fruit from rocky slate. A fabulous Spätlese bottled with 8% alcohol. Tasted from AP 9 19. You can drink it now, but don't be sad if there is nothing left in 20+ years. STEPHAN REINHARDT, Wine Advocate
