Dr. Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese 2019

R695.00 inc. VAT
"The 2019 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese is clear yet still yeasty on the concentrated, spicy and slatey nose. Sweet, piquant and classy on the palate, this is a tight and concentrated Auslese with bitter grapefruit on the finish. It is still shy after the recent bottling yet indicates remarkable concentration, grip and tension. - Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

Dr. Loosen Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Grosses Gewächs 2020

R494.99 inc. VAT
Tasted as a cask sample in August 2021, Loosen’s 2020 Graacher Himmelreich GG Alte Reben is precise and intense, well concentrated and ripe but fresh and provided with lemon notes. Lush and elegant on the palate, this is a rich and powerful, well structured, crystalline, persistently salty, complex and powerful Riesling with great tension.- Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

Immich-Batterieberg Enkircher Zeppwingert Riesling 2018

R950.00 inc. VAT
Immich-Batterieberg Enkircher Zeppwingert Riesling 2018, "Aged on the lees for 18 months, the 2018 Enkircher Zeppwingert Riesling Reserve is very intense and concentrated on the nose. Slightly caramelly on the palate, this is a fresh, pure, crystalline and finely tannic Riesling. Tasted at the domain in September 2020." - Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

Immich-Batterieberg Enkircher Ellergrub Riesling 2020

R735.00 inc. VAT
"From ancient, partly ungrafted vines, the 2020 Enkircher Ellergrub Riesling is white-golden in color and opens with a clear, fine and very complex as well as delicate bouquet of ripe fruit and finely weathered blue slate notes. This is amazingly fine again but also generously ripe, yet everything seems to be so easily interwoven. Bottled three weeks ago, this is a full-bodied, round and elegant Riesling that, again, didn't ferment to fully dry, which gives slightly sweet (or round) fruit but also lush, mouth-filling and silky-textured fruit with remarkable finesse. The finish is long and harmonious, very elegant and sublime. Many Riesling lovers will adore this wine immediately (and with the right dish, such as poultry in cream sauce with morels or porcini, with good reason), yet I'd opt to cellar it for about a decade. In any case, you can expect to enjoy a great Mosel Riesling when it's Immich's 2020 Ellergrub. 12% stated alcohol, 16 grams of residual sugar per liter. Natural cork. Tasted on November 1, 2021." - Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

Immich-Batterieberg Enkircher Ellergrub Riesling 2018

R775.00 inc. VAT
Immich-Batterieberg Enkircher Ellergrub Riesling 2018, "Bottled two weeks before the tasting in late April this year, the 2018 Enkircher Ellergrub Riesling opens with a bouquet that is less clear and reminds me of the pungent effects of the suzukii fly in many 2014 Muscats, Gewürztraminers and even Pinot Gris, here intertwined with yeasty and oaky aromas. Mind, though, that 2018 did not cause any rot. Not fermented to fully dry (fermentation stopped at 10 grams of residual sugar), this is a fruity, sweetish and slightly tannic Riesling that seems to be in the middle of nowhere at this embryonal stage. It is difficult to say where it is going from here, but there is substance, grip and expression—elegance, finesse or stimulation still have to be developed." - David Schildknecht, Vinous

Immich-Batterieberg Escheburg Riesling 2020

R375.00 inc. VAT
"Assembling grapes from all the five "grands crus" of the domain and aged in old small oak barrels, the 2020 Enkircher Riesling Escheburg opens with a fine yet intense and elegant bouquet of ripe Riesling berries and finely weathered slate. Crystalline, refined and juicy on the palate, this is a full-bodied, round and elegant yet filigreed dry Riesling with a long, intense and complex finish with stimulating roundness and salinity. Just bottled, the 2020 Escheburg is already in captivating early form. 12% alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in September 2021." - Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

Immich-Batterieberg Riesling “Detonation” 2020

R325.00 inc. VAT
"Immich's 2020 Riesling Detonation is deep, intense and flinty on the dark toned, initially reductive and still more yeasty than fruity nose that reveals crushed stone notes along with ripe yet discreet Riesling aromas. Round and refined on the crystalline palate, this is a full-bodied, intense and very elegant, calm-flowing yet structured dry Riesling with long, intense and juicy fruit and fine salinity on the finish. This is an excellent Mosel Riesling sourced in the Dhroner Hofberg, Briedeler Herzchen, Sennheimer Lay, Enkirchener Steffensberg and Monteneubel. Aged in stainless steel, this is the only single-vineyard wine from Immich-Batterieberg sold for less than 20 euros ex-cellars. It is also the finest and most complex Detonation I have tasted so far. 11.5% alcohol. Screw cap. Tasted soon after the bottling in September 2021." - Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
