We are big fans of Ostertag around here, and this punchy riesling is no exception. Volcanic sediment and pink sandstone make up the soil in the Muenchberg parcel, imparting a steep minerality that cuts nicely through the slight sweetness in this bottle. Try with roast pork or meaty fish for a treat.
Christoph Edelbauer will be the first to preach quality over quantity. He and his team purposely keep yields low in order to ensure every drop of wine that goes into their bottles is top-notch. This lush, aromatic riesling is sure not to disappoint and would be a hit with some light, spicy noodles.
The Wirz vineyard was planted in 1963 just east of the San Andreas fault in California, and this dry riesling is definitely a force. With zero added sulfur and chemical-free farming, this bottle is a wild expression of old-vine California riesling, with zippy minerality and honeyed citrus notes.
The Binner family have been making wine since the late 1700s. Their vineyard sites are located on steep slopes and surrounded by wild nature. They farm without chemical additives and they don’t fine or filter their wines. This blend of Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Muscat and Auxerrois is aromatic and refreshing.
This Riesling packs a punch- with ample acidity and razor-sharp minerality, this bottle is a dramatic showcase of the slate and volcanic rock its vines were grown in, without losing the hallmark fruitiness of riesling. Try with an herby roasted pork dish.

This intensely aromatic Clare Valley Riesling has a cult following and we understand why - gorgeous lean structure with a complex floral, fruity, and mineral-driven nose. This wine is bone dry with persistent length, which makes for a memorable, if not legendary, Riesling experience.
