Though 2021 has been heralded as the most exciting German vintage in a decade, Lauer's 2022s reveal an estate that constantly strives to reach even greater heights. If you’ve been following Florian’s work, you will not want to miss these, and if you’ve been curious to know what all the fuss is about, this is a perfect entry point. 
Vom Boden’s fearless leader Stephen Bitterolf describes the 2022 Fass 8 as “Absolutely nuts-o wine in 2022 – these are maybe the best Kabinetts Lauer has ever made? Which makes zero sense after 2021, I understand this, but still…”

The Fass 8 comes from vines ranging from 26-44 years old in a sheer, south facing slope in the middle of the iconic Kupp vineyard. A bottle tasted yesterday was absolutely delightful. With a touch of smokey reduction on the nose leading to lifted, ripe golden fruit on the palate with a tense, energized, crunchy texture. The wine clocks in at a very easy to love 8% alcohol (breakfast wine!) and the sweetness is perfectly balanced by plenty of fresh acidity.

It feels drier than perhaps you'd expect — and should age gracefully over at least the next 10-20 years. This is a total steal, and is the absolute embodiment of why German riesling is STILL one of the greatest values in wine. Don’t sleep on what might just emerge as the Kabinett of the vintage!

German Wines

Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!

Far too sweet for me

Not one of the dryer rieslings. Very light. Good after a meal.
