2017 Maximin Riesling [02 18] (GRUN02217A)
A lovely example of Ruwer Riesling: bright, fresh and with typical cool green herbal notes set against apple and citrus flavours.
2016 Herrenberg Kabinett [04 17] (GRUN20216A)
An absolutely magical Kabinett this year. If you like Òem old-style, then this is for you: it is lean and pure, there is dense gooseberry and herbal fruit and so much focussed minerality on the finish that it tastes dry.
2015 Juffer GG [24 16] (HAAG01215A)
Fine and spicy, with rounded ripe fruit, soft acidity and gentle lingering mineral flavours.
2015 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr GG [08 16] (HAAG02215A)
An extraordinary wine that combines power with delicacy and fluidity with intensity. There is ample peachy fruit, a soft creamy minerality, and a smooth long finish.
2016 Brauneberger Kabinett [03 17] (HAAG06216A)
Spicy, soft and delicate, this shows delicious lemony fruit and drives to a brisk, mineral-laden finish. As ever, a most elegant Kabinett.
2015 Piesporter Riesling [12 16] (HARJ20215A)
From young vines in Goldtröpchen. Powerful and rich, this is an expressive wine with rounded pear fruit, a healthy dose of citrus in the form of grapefruit pith and lemon, and a vibrant, fine ripe finish. Drink 2017 - 2025
2015 Wintricher Riesling [13 16] (HARJ22215A)
Prolonged skin contact before fermentation gives a powerful rich wine, possessing both energy and elegance. There is plenty of pithy citrus fruit and a distinct smoky quality, along with well-defined cool orchard fruit. Drink 2017 -2025
2016 Piesporter Goldtröpchen [07 17] (HARJ30216A)
From 110-year-old vines adjacent to the Schubertslay vineyard. The grey slate gives an appealing creamy quality to the ripe yellow fruit, and there is lovely roundness and length. It is, however, very tight, and will need time to reveal its true glory. Drink 2019 - 2030
2014 Scharzhofberg Spätlese [09 15] (HOVE22214A)
The elegance is immediately apparent from the first sip. It glides effortlessly across the palate, leaving intense lemon, grapefruit and salty mineral flavours behind. Very moreish indeed.
2012 Kanzem Hörecker Grosse Lage [12 13] (HOVE70212A)
2017 Hütte GG [15 18] (HOVE76217A)
There is a very appealing lean raciness to the juicy ripe floral and peach fruit, the minerality is fine, and the finish is long and pure.
2017 Riesling [02 18] (KNEW06217A)
100% limestone soil gives a fresh, vibrant open wine with zingy acidity, bright citrus notes and a balancing mineral backbone.
2016 Goldberg [14 17] (KNEW42216A)
From a warmer site, with a slightly higher clay content. There is pure yellow fruit, notes of fresh herbs and a lovely intensity running through to a persistent finish.

2016 Hundertgulden [16 17] (KNEW46216A)
Named Hundertgulden - a hundred guilders - because in medieval times its wine was so valuable. Pure limestone and chalky loam soils give an intense, lean lemony wine with juicy grapefruit and very fine salty mineral flavours that linger on the finish.
2016 Weissburgunder Scheibenhardt [09 17] (KOCH22216A)
2017 Grauburgunder Eichbuck [05 18] (KOCH30217A)
2017 Qvinterra Scheurebe [08 18] (KUHL16217A)
A lovely example of Scheurebe: typical pithy grapefruit and peach flavours pair with bright pure lemon acidity and a long dry finish.
2016 Nackenheim Riesling [23 17] (KUHL24216A)
Breathtakingly fresh ripe citrus and orchard fruit are driven by slatey mineral flavours to a long finish.
2017 Ölberg GG [42 18] (KUHL34217A)
The south-east orientation of the Ölberg ensures a lot of sun, which gives a rich, rounded wine, and is also exposed to wind, which keeps the wines fresh. Oliver Spanier has made an elegant, vibrant wine with mint and citrus notes and an energetic, powerful finish.
2017 Jacobus Riesling [01 18] (KUHN06217A)
Ripe and expressive, this has vibrant, pithy citrus fruit and a juicy, smooth finish.
