6 bottle pack. From our German Revelation virtual tasting exploring various grapes of Germany, we’ve put together a pack of all the wine into one big Teutonic Treasure Trove. You’ll get one bottle each of:
– Ziereisen Heugumber Gutedel Chasselas 2017
The Germans call the grape Gutedel, the French and Swiss call it Chasselas. With 13 months on the lees, this gives it doughy/yeasty/nutty flavours which add to the pear, citrus, hay and wet-stone characteristics.
– Josten & Klein Schiefer Grauburgunder 2018 Mittlerhein
This Grauburgunder (aka Pinot Gris/Grigio) is from parcels around Leutesdorf in the Mittelrhein. Lovely ripe and pure fruit, packs more of a punch than expected from this variety, with some juicy tropical fruit, mingled nicely with a subtle minerality. 92/100 Greg Sherwood MW
– FIO Wines Fabelhaft Riesling 2018 Mosel
The 2018 Riesling Fabelhaft offers a clear, refined, subtle, spring-like Riesling bouquet with discreet flinty notes intertwined with natural fruit and a fine sur lie aroma. Delicate and juicy on the palate, with a fine grip and charmingly delicate texture, this is a pleasant light Mosel Riesling that dinks beautifully today. (Wine Advocate)
– Dönnhoff Tonschiefer Dry Slate Riesling 2019 Nahe
The 2019 Riesling Tonschiefer is clear, deep and complex yet bright and refined on the delicately fruity nose. Juicy and mouthfilling yet dense, piquant and structured on the palate. (92-92pts Wine Advocate)
– Louis Guntrum Gewürztraminer 2018 Rheinhessen
Only a small amount of Gewürztraminer is planted in Germany and, like this one, is usually vinified as a dry wine that is a little less opulent than those of Alsace. Delicate fragrance of rose petals, spices and pear fruit.
– Reichsrat Von Buhl Spätburgunder 2016 Pfalz
This Spätburgunder (aka Pinot Noir) is an elegant wine full of cherry and redcurrant aromas with a mild earthy flavour. The fruits are lively and ripe with smooth tannins and a long finish.
