We love riesling. We LOVE riesling. We will go to battle for riesling! This beautiful dry Kabinett-style riesling from Peter Lauer is flinty and bright, with a sage-inflected nose. Elegant and finessed, this is a Lauer for all occasions.
While Lauer considers this a village-level wine (special Lauer label-reading tip: any bottle with a green circle on it is considered a village-level wine), it is in fact a single-vineyard wine sourced completely from the Ayler Kupp. With an average vine age of around 70 years and a plethora of ungrafted vines, this is a wine that punches well above its price. This is a Grand Cru wine in everything but price and it remains, for me, one of the greatest values in white wine, period. Although there can be vintage variation, this wine is normally dry tasting. - VomBoden
