"Kesselstatt’s 2010 Scharzhofberger Riesling Spatlese introduces a musky, honeyed overlay both on the nose and on a glycerin-rich palate, signifying the noble appearance of boytrytis on the stage. Invigoratingly pungent smoky and saliva-inducingly saline elements add further compelling intrigue and sensual appeal to a matrix of nearly overripe peach and herbal essences. There is elegance and lift here as well as a marriage of textural creaminess with vivacity that really display the grower’s and vinifier’s art as well as the uniqueness of a great site and of a style of wine unapproachable anywhere else on earth. Moderate residual sugar reinforces the fruit and moderates any tendency the botrytis might have had toward bitterness but a the same time stays in the background so that while this beauty will no doubt keep well for a quarter century, it is not one of those “sweet” Mosel Rieslings that needs years in bottle to prove versatile at table."

2012 Christoffel Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese

"As always, stylish and complex; kirsch and Gravenstein apples, very long, a tall thin-leggy prettiness here. Ürziger Würzgarten is an iconic Mittel Mosel site, famous for it's red sandstone soil covered by red slate over a large and steep amphitheater. Typically wines from this site tend to be the more spicy, tropical and richer then those from neighboring villages and sites."

2011 Dr Pauly Bergweiler Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese

"Due to its individual slatestone notes it is straight ahead and complex at the same time. Ripe tropical fruits, like mango, pineapple and papaya form the first impression. The sweetness is well balanced by a fine acidity and gives the wine a good mouthfeel."
