In-Store Tasting:
Mosel Masterpieces
and world class German Pinot Noir from Rudi Wiest

Saturday, October 7, 1-4p.m.

Please join us Saturday. Nancy Peach of Rudi Wiest selections will be here to pour selections from some of Germany's best Estates.  For those of you unfamiliar with the portfolio of Rudi Wiest, it's basically composed of nothing but "blue chip" wine Domaines so generally if you see his name on the back of a bottle it's bound to be authentic and of extreme high quality.

Nancy will pour the following:

2015 Schloss Lieser Estate Riesling Trocken

The 2015 Riesling Trocken SL is stunningly intense and complex on the nose, provided with ripe fruit and flinty mineral flavors. The wine is clear, rich and enormously vital and juicy on the palate; it is very well structured and amazingly mineral and complex at this price level. Hard to beat! This is one of the 2015 highlights in this price category.

2016 Iphöfer Kalb Silvaner Dry (Bocksbeutel)

This is a terrific dry Silvaner bottled the traditional Bocksbeutel. Wirsching is regarded as by far one of the best growers in Franconia.

2015 Schloss Lieser Estate Riesling Kabinett

This generic bottling sourced from several communes delivers tangy, faintly prickly fresh apple and pineapple nicely underscored by efficacious but not obvious sweetness. Firm in feel, it finishes with juicy refreshment and mouthwatering salinity.

2014 Monchhof Urziger Wurzgarten Spatlese

Ripe white peach aromatics mix with hints of exotic fruit. On the palate there are classic Wurzgarten floral spice notes, which swirl with pear, guava, red raspberry, lemon, iris and hints of pineapple. Wine offers excellent volume with a rich texture and a long finish. This Spatlese is sourced from the original part of the Wurzgarten (where the vines are between 60-100 years old).

2013 Reinhold Haart - Piesporter Goldtropfchen Spatlese

Late harvested at the end of October, the 2013 Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Riesling Spätlese was picked with a very small part of botrytis, which was obligatory in this vintage. Nutty flavors emerge on the ripe and quite complex, though somewhat reductive, nose that currently lacks the purity and clarity of Adam's Spätlesen. Haart's Goldtröpfchen is noble, rich, sweet, very juicy, creamy and elegant on the palate, well structured, but needs some years of bottle age.

Werner Näkel was chosen wine maker of the year in 2004 in the Gault-Millau. He is a visionary that revolutionized Pinot Noir production the Ahr region. In 2011, Fallstaff, the leading wine publication in Austria, chose Werner Näkel for its highest award: his life's work in wine!
