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.

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...

Riesling from Mosel, Germany
A new cuvée! Previously this all went to Quebec, but we will get some for NY this year. Grown in grey slate on the Marienburg. Spontaneously fermented, macerated extra time on the skins, then matured 15 months on the lees in Clemens’ big old (50+yr) German oak barrels. Unfiltered and unfined. A...

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...

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,...

GunderlochRiesling Dry Estate "vom Roten Schiefer"
Riesling from Rheinhessen, Germany
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.

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.

HarmRiesling Dürnsteiner Kellerberg
Riesling from Wachau, Austria
The Dürnsteiner Kellerberg is another renowned site in Wachau. Not only does it characterize the famed landscape of Dürnstein, it also provides the foundation for particularly intense Rieslings. Weathered gneiss, the most common rock in this area, stamps the site’s meager, sandy soil. The vines are...

Riesling from Mosel, Germany

Clemens BuschRiesling GG Marienburg Fahrlay
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
A Bowler favorite, year after year. Clemens’ only parcel of blue slate on the Marienburg, which imparts luster, florality, sizzling acids and fantastic staying power to the wine. There is some skin contact in this wine’s vinification, lending a mild tannic backbone. It’s a steely pleaseure for...

Clemens BuschRiesling GG Marienburg Fahrley-Terrasen
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
Grapes for this cuvée are harvested on the steepest terraces of the Fahrlay grand cru, a volcanic formation of blue slate that is hundreds of millions of years old. The Terrassen (terraces) cuvee is always slightly "sweeter" than the GG from here.

Clemens BuschRiesling GG Marienburg Falkenlay
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
65-90 year old ungrafted vines planted on grey slate. A dry wine from a site famous for its noble sweets. Firm, vivid, gingery, incredibly ripe and saline with acidity that elevates it to a quiveringly “alive” state of being. Perhaps the best food wine in this collection and clearly a long term...
