Weinhaus Peter Lauer en primeur

Back to producer list Grower profile 2017 was a challenge, but ultimately very rewarding. Frost damage to the early bud break was mitigated by vigorous secondary bud growth, but rot problems in September greatly reduced yields. Painstaking work in the vineyard and rigorous selection of individual bunches and even berries resulted in clean, rich and balanced wines. Thanks to the heavy rain in August, the vines sucked up more matter from the soil, meaning that they have very high dry extracts, and are full of flavour. An onset of botrytis in October produced a stunning range of late harvest wines.

2017 KUPP Fass 18 GG [18 18] (LAUE32217A)
From the estate 's warmest site, a steep west-facing slope directly on the river. This is a complex wine: there is forward, peachy fruit tinged with fresh green flavours, bright acidity and a powerful lingering mineral presence on the finish.

2017 SAARFEILSER Fass 13 GG [13 18] (LAUE36217A)
The first impression is of fresh green and yellow fruit and bright lemon flavours, but then the structure of the wine emerges: it is taut and vibrant, brimming with energy and power and given definition by a fine, very smooth minerality. Best put aside for a while.

2017 KUPP Kabinett Fass 8 [08 18] (LAUE40217A)

2017 LAMBERTSKIRCH Kabinett [14 18] (LAUE41217A)
The Lambertskirch vineyard, downriver from the Schonfels, was planted to fruit trees when Florian Lauer purchased it in 2010. He believes it to be a great site, and it certainly has the necessary: a south-facing steep slope of very rocky grey slate. The wine bears this out: it has fresh cool green notes, and a zingy pithy quality, as well as great length.
