Buyer Alert! The great 2015 German Riesling vintage has already been compared with the legendary 1990, and that would be saying something…

We’ve tasted a few and it is not the ‘green’ classic spectrum like 2013 and 2014, the 2015’s are muscular and bold like a body builder, but with incredible acidity that balances out the fruit and make the wines appear drier than they actually are. These wines are good to drink now, yet improve for a decade or more.

Our first 2015 shipment has arrived, and its not very big, so get yours quickly, it won’t last…
