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...

Koehler-RuprechtPinot Noir Kabinett Trocken
Pinot Noir from Pfalz, Germany
Sourced from a mix of sites in Kallstadt and one vineyard in Bad Dürkheim (planted to Pinot Noir in 2008) where the soils here are light and sandy. The grapes were handpicked, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel; pressed after 4-6 weeks and aged for two years in one new "Doppelstück"  (2400L...

Koehler-RuprechtPinot Noir Rosé Kabinett Trocken
Pinot Noir from Pfalz, Germany
100% Pinot Noir grown organically in limestone; 100% press-juice vinified in 2500L double stück casks with a short soak, no malolactic. At 12.5% alcohol and about 6.5 grams of acidity, this delightful rosé is light in color with lip-smacking freshness and fruit.

Koehler-RuprechtRiesling Auslese Trocken Saumagen "R"
Riesling from Pfalz, Germany
6/750 One of the best bottlings from K-R: everything in its place, everything showing but still evolving, grace wedded to strength, fruit seasoned by salinity, and the petrolly, grainy, apricot-y, classically Pfalz-y flavors that just won’t quit. The qualitative equivalent of a GG for the estate,...

Koehler-RuprechtRiesling Kabinett Steinacker
Riesling from Pfalz, Germany
One of the very few wines with sweetness produced at Koehler-Ruprecht, and a predictably fine one! Steinacker translates to the "stony acre,” a sandstone+loess site characterized by pebbly rocks. Its borders were over-expanded for political purposes (like many famous sites) by the 1971 law, but...

Koehler-RuprechtRiesling Kabinett Trocken Saumagen
Riesling from Pfalz, Germany
The Saumagen is the estate’s crown jewel: 4 hectares of chalky marl and limestone in the shape of a saumagen, the specialty sausage of the region. This vintage, the dry Kab is a “true Kabinett:” light, spicy and elegant with beautiful lingering fruit and river stones.

Koehler-RuprechtRiesling Spätlese Trocken Saumagen
Riesling from Pfalz, Germany
Words like “stunning” and “dazzling” have been invoked by the critics to describe this luxuriantly rich, dry, complex and austerely young wine. Perhaps one of the finest vintages produced at K-R to date.

Koehler-RuprechtRiesling Spätlese Trocken Saumagen
Riesling from Pfalz, Germany
Magnificent wine, one of the top dry Spätlesen of 2015. Not necessarily bigger than the Kabinett from that year, but clearly firmer, more layered, and very young. A noteworthy bargain for those who want to buy some top quality K-R for their cellars without paying "R" prices. DO NOT MISS.

DB1038-15
Koehler-RuprechtWeißburgunder (Pinot Blanc) Kabinett Trocken
Pinot Blanc from Pfalz, Germany
100% Pinot Blanc vinified bone dry but very ripe. A late-harvest selection of older vines (40-50 years old) planted in limestone soils mostly from the Steinacker and some from Saumagen. Mineral-driven and creamy with a touch of acidity.
