GunderlochBeerenauslese "Messidor"
Riesling from Rheinhessen, Germany
Great little dessert wine in half bottles! This B.A. or Beerenauslese (specially selected berries which are concentrated by botrytis) is blended from Gewürztraminer, Müller-Thurgau and Riesling. Wines like this are some of the rarest and most labor-intensive bottlings made in the world. Pale gold...

Koehler-RuprechtChardonnay Spätlese Trocken Annaberg
Chardonnay from Pfalz, Germany
The Annaberg is known to hardcore German wine fans as the birthplace of Scheurebe, but its south-facing slope of rich, dark soils inflected with sand and chalk also turns out to be prime ground for Chardonnay. Dominik farms this organically and matures the wine without bâtonnage in old oak barrels...

DoppelcheckDry Riesling
Riesling from Rheingau, Germany
The wine is a single-vineyard selection from Lorcher Seligmayer, a steep slope located just where the Rhine river exits the Rheingau region and turns north toward the Mittelrhein. The grapes grow in hillside vineyards of stony slate and quartzite, which help capture and retain heat in this...

GunderlochRiesling Auslese Nackenheimer Rothenberg
Riesling from Rheinhessen, Germany
90g/l RS, 9g acid, 7% alc. There was botrytis in this vintage, but at Gunderloch it was the dry, clean kind that winemakers love.

Koehler-RuprechtRiesling Auslese Trocken Saumagen "R"
Riesling from Pfalz, Germany

The qualitative equivalent of a GG for the estate,...
