June 1, 2022



2020 Dolde Silvaner Alte Reben Organic Very Good Plus $31, Case $26.99

2020 AJ Adam Drohn Im Pfarrgarten Riesling Feinherb; Aroma: Reduced, funky, with richness underneath, firm; Mouth: Juicy rich, definitely dry, fat, nicely juicy intensity; Very Good Plus $25.99, Case $22.99

2020 Ott Am Berg Grüner Veltliner The wine opens with a clear, fresh, beautifully delicate, and spicy white stone fruit aroma. On the palate, this is a light and fresh, straight, seriously structured, and grippy Veltliner with 11.8% alcohol and fine lemon fruit bitters on the sustainable finish. Stephan Reinhardt $27.99, Case $23.99

2018 Clemens Busch Marienburg Kabinett Organic biodynamic pure, bright, and fresh yet heavily reductive on the nose that displays a kind of slate perfume with white fruit aromas. Lush and piquant on the palate, this is a hedonistic Riesling with elegance, piquancy, and stimulating salinity. A fabulous Riesling that tastes rather like a very digestible Spätlese, though. Good length, grip, and salinity" Stephan Reinhardt $26.99, Case $22.99

2019 Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese clear, ripe and honeyed fruit with crunchy slate aromas. Piquant and juicy on the palate, this is an intense, fruity, and classy Spätlese with concise acidity. Stephan Reinhardt $29.99, Case $25.99
