Donnhoff Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Spatlese 75cl£33.00 Add to basket
Slate under alluvial sediments, pebbles, sandstone. ‘Aromatic tar’ note; savoury firestone, apricot purée, dense, intense; big flavour expansion in the mouth. Stony, savoury notes diminish the perception of sweetness, lush, mouth-watering. Focused and expansive. Cracking balance. Opulent and fleshy, nervosity of acidity. Just lovely.
Jean Stodden Pinot Noir Recher 75cl£40.00 Add to basket
The Pinot noir grape variety is said to be the queen of the Ahr wine-growing region. This Pinot noir from the Rhineland-Palatinate matured for 17 months in both new and used barriques. The wine shows correspondingly fine and smoky notes that harmonize perfectly with the aromas of red berries such as strawberry and blackberry, cloves and wood, complemented by subtle hints of coffee. On the palate, the Jean Stodden Recher Herrenberg Pinot Noir is fresh and has a good, clear structure. In addition, the wine has a lovely depth and a long finish with harmoniously integrated tannins.

Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spatlese 75cl£19.50 Add to basket
The Spätlese (late picked) designation means that the grapes get an extra week or two of hang time, which helps them develop higher ripeness levels and deeper flavours than the Kabinett wine. This wine from a truly ‘grand cru’ vineyard in the village of Erden, is a fruit-driven Riesling that combines extraordinary concentration and length with a bracing minerality. The site was rated as a ‘First Vineyard’ (Erste Lage) in the 1868 Prussian classification of the Mosel and has iron rich, red slate soils which influence the finished wine’s structure, giving it more weight and power. Medium-sweet although the acidity never makes it feel too rich, the wine shows notes of both dark fruits, like blackcurrant, alongside grapefruit and lime.
