6 bottle pack. In conjunction with our German Revelation tasting, we’ve put together a pack of all the wines we’re showing 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)
– Donnhoff Tonschiefer Dry Slate Riesling 2018 Nahe
The 2018 Tonschiefer Riesling is ripe, clear and generous on the bright and juicy nose. Lush and piquant on the palate, this is a round yet crystalline, persistently salty Riesling with stunning power. (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 2015 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.
