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...

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. Tasted upon release, it showed extremely pale and pretty with great juiciness and lift--atypical for a Rhine Auslese. Sweet lemon tea notes play around the edges. A wine...

Very dry at just 3.5g/l RS. Sourced from Gunderloch's three grand cru sites (Rothenberg, Pettenthal, Hipping), spontaneously fermented and vinified in steel. Red slate  (roten schiefer) coats the tongue and flourishes its herbal, spice-scented signature. 12hrs of skin contact also lends the wine a...

GunderlochRiesling Dry Niersteiner
Riesling from Rheinhessen, Germany
100% Pettenthal fruit vinified in 100% old oak barrels on full lees with a nice, long maceration. Pettenthal has softer soils than Rothenberg, less compressed and smaller, broken rocks in the topsoil. It traditionally makes a lighter, more filigreed wine.

GunderlochRiesling Spätlese Nackenheimer Rothenberg
Riesling from Rheinhessen, Germany
72g/l RS, 8g acid, 9% alc. The sweet Spät from Gunderloch has been one of the core items of the Bowler portfolio since we opened our doors. In 2015 it is practically the perfect Spätlese, ultra-ripe, balletically graceful, and filled with spiced, poached pear flavors and a sense of pure distilled...

GunderlochRiesling Spätlese Nackenheimer Rothenberg
Riesling from Rheinhessen, Germany
Powerful and lavish Spatlese, completely swet and sensuously textured--YET somehow balanced on a dime with a finish that floats. How do they do that?!?! Deep yellow fruis are accented by potpourri, honey and river rocks. These wines have a tremendous history of development with age.
